WellSpan Health to build outpatient health center in Hanover area

Monday, August 07, 2017

State-of-the-art facility to include ambulatory surgery suite, physician offices and diagnostic testing services

Officials at WellSpan Health today announced plans to build an 80,000-square-foot outpatient health care facility on Baltimore Street in Penn Township.

Pending final approvals, construction of the new WellSpan Hanover Health Center is expected to begin this fall, with a planned opening by fall 2018. The $49 million facility will house an outpatient surgery suite, lab and imaging services, and primary care and specialty physician offices.

“WellSpan has been caring for Hanover area residents for nearly 140 years, and this project reflects our long-term commitment to those who live and work here,” said Kevin Mosser, M.D., president and chief executive officer of WellSpan Health. “Through this new health center, WellSpan will bring even more advanced specialty care to the greater Hanover community, because we believe no one should have to leave York County to get the care they need.”

The WellSpan Hanover Health Center will be built in phases, with the new surgery suite, lab and imaging services expected to open first.

The surgery suite will include four operating rooms and two specialty procedure rooms, along with more than two dozen private pre-op and post-op patient rooms. The second phase of the center will include primary care and specialty physician offices in the areas of cardiology and OB-GYN with up to 36 patient exam rooms and treatment areas.

Plans call for the surgical suite to offer the latest in bariatric, gastrointestinal, oncological, gynecological and orthopedic procedures, including joint reconstruction. Diagnostic imaging services will include ultrasound, X-ray, CT scan, mammography and MRI.

The WellSpan Hanover Health Center is the latest investment in the Hanover area by the locally based regional health system. Other WellSpan services currently located in the community include family medicine, women’s health, orthopedics, gastroenterology, radiation oncology and vascular surgery.

“We’re committed to investing in Hanover, because this is our home and these are our neighbors,” Mosser said. “In the future, we look forward to recruiting new physicians, investing in new services and programs and taking other steps that will keep health care local.”
