Jarowenko named vice president of medical affairs at Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center

Penn State Health has appointed Dr. Mark Jarowenko vice president of medical affairs at Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center, effective Sept. 1. He will lead the development and recruitment of the medical staff for the new hospital, which opens Oct. 3. He will also oversee Lancaster Medical Center’s relationships with private practice physicians to ensure clinical integration and patient and provider quality and satisfaction.

“Dr. Jarowenko’s extensive clinical experience and tremendous leadership skills will help ensure that our new hospital delivers superior medical care to the residents of Lancaster County,” said Joseph Frank, Penn State Health East Region hospital president. “He’s been a practicing urologist in Lancaster County for more than two decades and is committed to building a team of talented and compassionate providers.”

Board-certified in urology, Jarowenko most recently was a partner at Keystone Urology Specialists – formerly Lancaster Urology – where he specialized in laparoscopic and urologic robotic surgery. He started his career at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, where he was an assistant and then associate professor of surgery in Penn State College of Medicine’s Department of Urology from 1985 to 2000. He also served as a consultant with the Lebanon VA Medical Center in Lebanon, Pa., from 1985 to 1996, and with the Elizabethtown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Elizabethtown, Pa., from 1985 to 1991.

Lancaster Medical Center is a 132-bed community hospital under construction in East Hempfield Township, Lancaster County. When it opens, the hospital will give residents in this growing community expanded access to Penn State Health’s primary, specialty and acute care, including the advanced care and clinical trials at the health system’s academic hub, the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Lancaster Medical Center will feature an emergency department, specialty medical and surgical services, an imaging lab, labor and delivery, and an attached medical office building for physician practices and outpatient services. It will employ nearly 900 health care workers when fully operational.
