$97.1 Million G-CMC Renovation Project

All hospital services remain available and will not be interrupted during construction


Geisinger Health System broke ground on a $97.1 million expansion project at Geisinger-Community Medical Center (G-CMC) in June, 2013.

Scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2015, the expansion will include a 14-room operating suite, a re-designed intensive care unit, an enhanced lobby that will extend to Mulberry Street and additional clinical and physician office space.

The expansion at G-CMC is part of the $158.6 million investment Geisinger Health System committed to enhance clinical programs, increase physician recruitment, expand and improve facilities and implement new information systems in Scranton and its surrounding communities.

This is an exciting time to be at Geisinger-Community Medical Center and we aim to keep everyone updated throughout the progress beginning with this brief overview of what to expect beginning June 3rd.
