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

  • Respect for All

    We are deeply committed to respecting everyone. In pursuit of true respect, we seek to better know and appreciate both each other and our patients. Through knowing people better we conduct ourselves with empathy and respect the diversity, rights and dignity of all regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, economic status or personal circumstances.

  • Working as One

    We work as one so our patients, consumers and communities can experience the benefit of WellSpan “working as one” with them and on their behalf. We work as one across professions, organizational boundaries and communities by collaborating, coordinating, and sharing expertise, information and resources—to better meet the needs of those we serve.

  • Assume Positive Intent

    As we seek to know one another and work as one we assume positive intent. We give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that they had positive intentions, identify the situational details, and get the bigger picture.

  • Do the Right Thing

    We earn the trust and confidence of the individuals and communities that we serve by doing what’s right; acting with transparency and honesty; protecting patient confidentiality; paying special attention to vulnerable moments such as transitions in care; and meeting the letter and the spirit of all applicable laws, regulations and professional standards. Integrity is expected in your performance and you should feel safe, empowered and confident that when you do the right thing, you will be supported. Together, leadership, staff and governance are all committed to creating a culture that empowers everyone to do the right thing.

  • Find a Better Way

    We are relentless in our pursuit of discovering better ways to meet our mission and serve our communities. We take seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to our care. We are creative. We innovate, seek out and share best practices, focus on long-term sustainability and adopt ways of transforming the delivery of healthcare. We are steadfast in our commitment to continuously learning and improving both as individuals and as an organization.
