Expanding To Meet Community Healthcare Needs

Visionary efforts to expand community healthcare services at Memorial Hospital will soon
be marked by a new three-story facility to accommodate an expansion of the Personal Care
Home as well as provide office space for the growing Community Health Associates LLC physician group.
"In keeping with the hospital's mission, this new construction will provide beautiful
facilities for medical services that will enhance the quality of life of residents,
patients and families in the communities we serve," says Jeff Russell, hospital spokesman.
"Expanding the Personal Care Home living space will help meet the needs of individuals
who are now on a waiting list," Russell said. "The new Personal Care Home accommodations
will be spacious and residents will be encouraged to decorate as they please. Residents
can bring their own furniture with them to add a more home-like atmosphere."
"Community Health Associates LLC is a growing medical practice that has maximized existing space.
Physicians are currently located in three different areas on the hospital campus.
By consolidating the Community Health Associates LLC physician group practice into one
facility, patients will enjoy easier access and better parking," he said.
Community Health Associates LLC provides family and internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and
gynecological care, general and vascular surgery, and ear, nose, and throat care.
The Community Health Associates LLC offices located in the communities of Wyalusing and
Dushore will remain open and unaffected by the new construction.
The new 32,000 square foot building will be constructed at the southern end of the existing
Personal Care Home facility on the Memorial Hospital campus.
Construction will include 106 parking spaces for convenient access for
patients coming to the new facility to see their doctors.
