The health care the West Shore deserves, closer to home.

Penn State Health is committed to expanding access to high-quality primary and specialty services on the West Shore. The 300,000-square-foot, three-story acute care facility will provide residents of Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and York counties with more convenient access to expert care from Penn State Health. The new Penn State Health Hampden Medical Center is located off Interstate 81 at the intersection of Good Hope and Wertzville roads in Hampden Township. 

A collaborative team of Penn State Health faculty physicians, Penn State Health Medical Group Community Practice providers and independent community providers will deliver a full spectrum of medical services to patients spanning from newborns to older adults.

The new, $200 million medical center will feature 108 private inpatient beds, an emergency department, physician offices, various specialty inpatient services, imaging and lab services and general acute care medical and surgical capabilities. The hospital site also will include an attached outpatient medical office building. Nestled into the foothills of the Blue Mountain range, it will provide patients with a scenic, healing view outside their windows.

The new Hampden Medical Center plays a fundamental role in helping achieve Penn State Health’s long-term goal of ensuring that everyone in the communities we serve is within 10 minutes of our primary care providers, 20 minutes of our specialty care services and 30 minutes of a Penn State Health acute care hospital.

Penn State Health and Highmark formed a partnership in 2017 to invest $1 billion in growing a comprehensive health care network for the central Pennsylvania region. Hampden Medical Center is a significant part of fulfilling that promise.
