I’m still psyched about UnitedHealthcare adding Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to our network and here’s why. The Medical Center employs more than 650 physicians and 1,800 nurses as part of a team of more than 8,500 people who provide patient care, education, research and community outreach.
The Medical Center campus includes Penn State College of Medicine (Penn State’s medical school), Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute, and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital—the region’s only children’s hospital. The Medical Center campus is part of Penn State Hershey Health System, which also includes the Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute, Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital, and other specialty facilities.
Founded in 1963 through a gift from The Milton S. Hershey Foundation, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is one of the leading teaching and research hospitals in the country. The 484-bed Medical Center is a provider of high-level, patient-focused medical care. Annually the Medical Center admits nearly 27,000 patients, accepts more than 800,000 outpatient visits, receives more than 50,000 patients for emergency room visits and performs more than 23,000 surgical procedures.
I urge people to check out all the great medical programs at HMC by visiting the website at pennstatehershey.org.
