New Penn State Health Medical Group clinic near Millersville University provides enhanced access to primary care

A newly relocated Penn State Health Medical Group practice near the campus of Millersville University is giving patients more convenient access to primary care in a brand-new facility. Penn State Health partnered with Student Lodging, Inc. to build a new outpatient clinic near Millersville University to serve the Millersville community and the surrounding region. Today, leaders from Penn State Health, Student Lodging, Inc., Millersville University and Highmark Health celebrated the opening of Penn State Health Medical Group – Millersville with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Student Lodging, Inc. is thrilled to partner with Penn State Health Medical Group to build this state-of-the-art facility for the benefit of the Millersville Community. Through projects like this, Student Lodging, Inc. continues its long history of enhancing the Millersville University experience and strengthening our community,” said Geoffrey Beers, CEO, Student Lodging, Inc.

Leaders from Penn State Health, Highmark Health and Millersville University cut the ribbon at the new Penn State Health Medical Group — Millersville facility.

Penn State Health Medical Group – Millersville, located next to the university campus, provides primary care, sports medicine and on-site lab services. The new, 11,000 square-foot building features 19 exam rooms, two specialty treatment rooms, ample parking and a student health suite. It is staffed with nearly two dozen providers and support staff relocated from the former Penn State Health Medical Group – Manor. Future plans include offering Millersville University students, faculty and staff convenient walk-in services through a separate, dedicated entrance.

“The health of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance,” said Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, president of Millersville University. “Having a facility within walking distance that is accessible to the entire campus community will benefit both our students and employees.”

This marks another step in the Penn State Health and Highmark long-term goal of ensuring that everyone in the communities it serves is within 10 minutes of a Penn State Health primary care provider, 20 minutes of its specialty care services and 30 minutes of a Penn State Health acute care hospital. Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center opened in 2022 and complements the health system’s other efforts to provide care for residents of Lancaster County close to where they live.

“We’re excited to open our first outpatient clinic this close to a college campus,” said Ruth Gundermann, senior director for ambulatory services at Penn State Health. “Making it easier for students to access healthcare is part of the promise we made together with Highmark Health to bring our care closer to where our patients work, live and learn.”

In December 2017, Highmark and Penn State Health announced a joint investment of $1 billion in the health and well-being of central Pennsylvanians to keep health care local.
