A cornerstone across local communities in Franklin County for trusted care for adults and children

At WellSpan, our commitment to your health goes beyond providing healthcare. We are ingrained in our communities – dedicated to improving the health of all we serve through timely access, local clinical expertise, and with an exceptional experience tailored to your care needs.

Established in 1895, WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital has served as a cornerstone for compassionate, high-quality, and excellence in care delivery to the communities of Franklin County and beyond. And in 2018, the hospital and talented caregivers of Summit Health joined WellSpan – further solidifying a leading, well-rounded team of clinical expertise with a shared goal of providing exceptional service for our friends and neighbors.

At WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital and throughout the surrounding regions, we are known for our comprehensive, state-of-the-art primary, specialty, outpatient, surgical, and urgent care options – all close by – and our commitment to our patients extends to both adults and children. A wide range of care services and procedures are offered, including breast care, dental care, ENT, family and internal medicine, gynecology, plastic surgery, podiatry, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management and spine care, as well as urology. Through our Dr. Roy A. Himelfarb Surgery Center in Chambersburg, a state-of-the-art, multi-specialty center and ranked one of the best ambulatory surgery centers in Pennsylvania, children receive surgical care for a variety of care needs.

We remain focused on providing timely support and clinical excellence for ongoing patient needs in the areas of pediatric surgical and neonatal care offerings, all while ensuring development opportunities for our pediatric nursing workforce.
