Geisinger Announces $880M New Tower and Parking Garage

 

DANVILLE – Another major construction project on the Geisinger Danville campus will start next year. A news release says Geisinger plans to build an $880 million eleven story tower in front of the hospital. They say that will double the size of the emergency room, increasing the ER from 45 beds to 60 beds.  Megan Brosious is chief administrative officer for Geisinger’s central region, “Our emergency department and ICUs are critical spaces within our hospital, we need to modernize and make sure that we have a facility that supports having the best experience when patients come to us whether it’s just for a quick emergency room visit and hopefully you get to go home, or if you’re among our sickest of patients and you need to spend time getting critical care delivered.”

Geisinger says the new intensive care units and operating rooms will surround the ER in order to hasten emergency treatment. Additionally, all Geisinger patients will have their own room in the future.  The main entrance roadways are already being reconfigured to improve traffic flow. The Dickey Clinic building will be demolished.
