Dickson City, Pa. (January 25, 2019) – Together with more than 20 Lackawanna County community leaders and elected officials, Coordinated Health (CH) celebrated the groundbreaking of its Coordinated Health Scranton Hospital in Dickson City. The hospital will be the first inpatient surgical facility to open in the region since 2014.
The new facility will expand the campus at 334 Main Street with an additional 78,000 square feet, adjacent to its existing 36,000 square foot medical office building. The integrated campus will offer orthopedic surgery, general surgery, women’s health, podiatry, physiatry, plastic surgery, imaging and a non-trauma emergency room, and the hospital will have 24 private inpatient rooms.
“Everyone in the Greater Scranton area has contributed to us being here today,” said CH President and Chief Operating Officer Amy Nyberg. “It’s been a true delight to work with the people of this area, and we very much look forward to doing much more of that in the future.”
Coordinated Health is based in the Greater Lehigh Valley, but it is not new to the Northeastern Pennsylvania market. In addition to Dickson City, the company operates campuses in Hazleton and Pittston, with construction underway for a medical campus at Humboldt Station, an industrial park in Luzerne County. The company’s hospitals in Allentown and Bethlehem consistently earn top ratings for high quality outcomes in patient care, including recognition from Healthgrades in Patient Safety Excellence, Outstanding Patient Experience and five-star surgical care.
“This is something we have dreamed of for probably close to fifteen years,” said CHSO orthopedic surgeon Dr. Chris Metzger. “We were never able to pull it off until we partnered with Coordinated Health. We’ll be working in a state-of-the-art facility and be able to provide great care in our own backyard.”
In addition to award-winning orthopedic care, Coordinated Health Scranton Orthopedics currently offers imaging, physical and occupational therapy, rheumatology and spine care. Durable medical equipment and custom orthotics are offered through CHSO affiliate organization, Keystone Prosthetics & Orthotics.
