Susquehanna Health is nearing the end of a $250-million construction and renovation project (Project 2012)—the largest expansion in our history.
Project 2012 was designed to help us overcome challenges related to aging facilities and to accommodate the latest technology. The expansion and renovation of our building structures will enable us to
- Incorporate the latest in digital technology to allow us to maximize medical services and efficiencies
- Improve physician and nursing staff recruitment and retention
- Enhance the patient and family experience
More than a decade ago, when Susquehanna Health realized we needed to modernize our facilities, we looked at several options. Although several very attractive suburban settings were considered, a team representing the City of Williamsport, combined with Lycoming County government officials, local businesses and human service organizations convinced our Board of Directors that their combined efforts and our collective ingenuity could result in a successful reconstruction of the system’s major medical center facilities on their historical urban sites within the City of Williamsport.
Despite the more complex engineering challenges associated with remaining in the City, Susquehanna Health listened to its host community, its patients, and its neighbors. As a result, Susquehanna Health agreed to a partnership model of reinvesting in sorely needed facility updates of Divine Providence Hospital and (the then)The Williamsport Hospital & Medical Center in their current locations.
Realizing Williamsport is experiencing a renaissance of commercial and public reinvestment by the colleges, banks, libraries, arts, historical societies, government organizations and private investors at a pace making other similar sized cities envious. In its role as a provider and employer, Susquehanna Health views its responsibility to be one which contributes to both the physical health of its patients and the fiscal health of the region.
