Scope of Services

- Acute Care: Nursing staff are primary members of the team that supports the comprehensive treatment plan for patients in our acute care units. A sense of accomplishment will be evidenced as you assist your patients' recovery from the acute phase of illness through the outpatient reinforcement to a return to their highest level of well-being.

- Long Term Care: Our 139-bed long-term care facility enables nurses to enhance the wellbeing of our residents, taking a role in offering quality and serenity in assisting these men and women during the twilight years of life.
- Maternity Care: Our Birthplace at UPMC Williamsport welcomes over 1,300 babies each year, allowing nurses there to impact the health and well-being of a new family.

- Outpatient Care: Outpatients are served through our new Surgery Center. As a society focused on time, our nursing staff help patients have their procedures done so they can quickly move on with their daily lives.
