The public and media are welcome to get a look inside Schuylkill County’s newest hospital during the Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital pre-opening celebration Saturday, Nov. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. at the new campus, 100 Paramount Blvd., Orwigsburg.
Featuring live entertainment, prizes, hospital tours, health and wellness activities and a visit from the Geisinger Life Flight team, the community can see inside the hospital and meet with those who will be caring for them when the new hospital opens.
People will be able to see inside patient rooms, including 15 private rooms in the emergency department and the private inpatient rooms on the third floor.
“A lot of hard work has gone into the hospital construction and planning, and we’re excited to let the community see what we’ve been doing here,” Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital President Gabriel Kamarousky said in a news release. “Our mission is to care for the sick and injured and improve our community’s health, regardless of the ability to pay, and we want to show off exactly how we’re going to do that by giving our neighbors a chance to see inside the hospital before it opens.”
An official hospital opening date hasn’t yet been set.
