Patient liaisons for questions or concerns

If you have a question or concern that you feel hasn’t been answered or addressed fully at any time, we urge you to reach out to a patient liaison. This could be a question about your care or any aspect of our facilities or services.

The patient liaison will help you get to the right person or department, and will stay involved to aid in the resolution of your issue.

The patient liaison is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. To reach one, call our Action Line at 570-808-7636.

If you call at a time when the patient liaison is not available, you can leave your name, phone number and a brief description of your concern. The patient liaison will contact you as soon as possible.

Voicing your thoughts about the care you receive helps us improve the quality of care we provide. We value your opinions and appreciate your candidness.

Spiritual care
Geisinger Shamokin Area Community Hospital seeks to provide spiritual care to patients of all faiths through the Spiritual Care Program. The spiritual care team provides on-call coverage 24 hours a day to meet emergency needs.

We open our doors to area ordained ministers, deacons and trained lay-leaders to provide members of their congregation’s comfort and care as they visit the hospital.

The Emily Rosini Spiritual Center is located in the main lobby of the hospital on the left after you go through the second set of doors. It is a quiet, peaceful place where one can go to find respite from the burdens of the day. The Emily Rosini Spiritual Center is open 24 hours a day.
