Construction of the new Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center is complete, clearing the way for staff to prepare the 132-bed, acute care hospital to welcome its first patients this fall. 

Work on Lancaster Medical Center began in May 2020, and construction was officially completed on June 10. Penn State Health partnered with Oak Tree Development Group, Barton Malow Alexander and HKS Architects on this project and sourced many key services and materials from Lancaster County businesses.  

The 341,000-square-foot, six-story medical center includes 132 private inpatient beds, an emergency department, various specialty inpatient services, including a cardiac catheterization lab, labor and delivery and complete medical and surgical capabilities. It also has an attached medical office building for physician practices and outpatient services. 

The health system’s commitment to Lancaster County families also includes the new Penn State Health Children’s Lancaster Pediatric Center, which opened in June. The 47,000-square-foot outpatient center, designed especially for children from infancy through age 18 and sometimes beyond, offers 20 medical and surgical pediatric specialty and subspecialty services, including cardiology, dermatology, neurology, ophthalmology, rheumatology, gastroenterology and urology.
