General Pediatric Office – Montoursville: This is a mature office with a relatively high patient volume and with the new Healthplex we are anticipating new patients and referrals. We will consider a new graduate or an experienced Pediatrician to care for a mix of patient demographics. There are currently 2-3 patient rooms as schedules allow, and within the next year and the construction of the new Healthplex, more space will be available.
Healthplex Services: This brand new 115,000 square foot micro-hospital is slated to open in the fall of 2020 and will be equipped with three operating suites to handle elective outpatient surgeries, short-stay surgical cases, low risk emergent surgical cases, and procedural capacity (e.g. endoscopy). A broad range of specialty services, including Pediatric Cardiology, will be available on-site as well as the resources of Geisinger's expanded network of sub-specialists throughout the system
