Changes at UPMC Lock Haven
After careful evaluation of the evolving health care needs of communities in and around Clinton County and how best to continue meeting those needs, the Board of Directors of UPMC in North Central Pa. and UPMC Lock Haven decided that working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to convert services at UPMC Lock Haven to an Outpatient Emergency Department. This model is the first of its kind in the Commonwealth under new Pennsylvania Department of Health guidance and is the best option to ensure continued access to quality care locally and long-term sustainability.
UPMC will continue our commitment to partnering in the community with several initiatives and care services at multiple locations throughout Clinton County.
Lab and imaging services, including x-ray, mammograms, nuclear medicine, CT, and MRI, will remain available on the Lock Haven campus and at outpatient locations within the community. Foot and ankle and pain management services will continue to practice in the same location on the third floor on the Lock Haven campus.
The Emergency Department will continue to offer the same level of high quality care, with full 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service. It will follow all outpatient emergency department regulations and become a part of UPMC Williamsport, a Level II trauma center. It will continue to be staffed with the same qualified and experienced physicians and care team that is there today. These providers remain committed to delivering the highest quality care today and into the future, ensuring that essential emergency services remain accessible in Lock Haven.
