We are WellSpan Health

Every day across central Pennsylvania, the people of WellSpan Health work together to support this non-profit mission of service—one patient, one community, one unique health care need at a time.  We also collaborate with community leaders, area residents and other health care providers to make sure that inpatient, outpatient, home health and physician services are located where they can do the most good for our neighbors.

Focusing on the health of the community has inspired us to transform the way we work.  We make it as simple as possible for individuals to develop a relationship with our health system and to become healthy and stay that way.  Each patient’s information is available to providers at any WellSpan location through our sophisticated electronic health record, and their care is coordinated by teams of physicians, health coaches, social workers and other professionals.  This is, we believe, the best way to improve health across our growing, diverse region.  

Our Mission

Working as one to improve health through exceptional care for all, lifelong wellness and healthy communities.

Our Values

  • Care for All

    We believe that everyone deserves essential care delivered in an exceptional manner regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, economic status or ability to pay.

  • Patient and Family-Centered

    We believe fulfilling our promise to those who entrust their lives and the lives of their loved ones to our care is our highest priority. We consider the patient first in all that we do and work in partnership with the patient and family members they choose to involve in their care. We collaborate with patients and families to improve the delivery of care and service.

  • Working as One

    We work as one across professional, organizational boundaries and with patients and communities. We do this by collaborating, coordinating, and sharing expertise, information and resources to meet the needs of those we serve. While our people are highly valued for their individual talents and contributions, we recognize that working together will allow us to improve health more effectively than any one of us working alone.

  • Respect

    We honor the dignity and diversity of our patients and communities by treating everyone we serve and work with the way we would want to be treated—with courtesy, compassion and respect.

  • Integrity

    We earn the trust and confidence of the individuals and communities that we serve by doing what’s right; acting transparently and honestly; protecting patient confidentiality; and meeting the letter and the spirit of all applicable laws, regulations and professional standards.

  • Continuous Learning

    As a learning organization, we innovate, seek out and share best practices and adopt new ways of transforming the delivery of health care to make a difference in the lives of our patients. As individuals and teams, we are committed to continuously improving and applying our skills and knowledge.

  • Stewardship

    We take seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to our care. Our constant focus on being an operationally excellent, financially strong and strategically focused organization enables us to control costs, to provide exceptional care, to be the employer of choice, to provide charitable community services and to be a strong health care organization for future generations.
