Penn State Health Medical Group building new primary care practice in Cumberland County
Residents in southern Cumberland and northern York County will soon have greater access to Penn State Health services and providers when a new primary care location opens on Rt. 114/Market Street near the Rt. 15 interchange, just south of Mechanicsburg.
The new, 10,000-square-foot Penn State Health Medical Group practice will initially include 12 exam rooms and additional clinical support space for a team of four primary care providers and about a dozen support staff. The building would also include shell space for eight additional exam rooms to allow for future expansion.
Penn State Health anticipates beginning construction on the new facility in April, with a likely opening to patients in fall 2020.
“This new outpatient practice will be designed around the needs of the community and serve as part of our broader efforts—in partnership with Highmark—to ensure people have access to Penn State Health providers close to home, where it’s convenient for them and their families.” said Dr. Peter Dillon, executive vice president and chief clinical officer, Penn State Health.
The new practice helps fulfill a commitment made in 2017 by Penn State Health and Highmark to build a broader community care network to ensure patients and members in central Pennsylvania are in close proximity to needed primary care, specialty care and appropriate acute care hospital settings. Penn State Health already provides primary and specialty care to West Shore area residents at a number of other locations.
