Geisinger St. Luke's Cuts Ribbon on New Health Center in Pottsville

With the snip of an oversized scissors, officials from Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital (GSL) formally opened the new GSL Health Center in Pottsville, which provides non-emergent care for colds, scrapes, bumps and bruises, along with primary care, occupational medicine, physical therapy, x-rays and diagnostic laboratory services.
The 21,000-square-foot facility, located at 2650 Woodglen Road, West Pottsville, north of Route 209 and just off Gordon Nagle Trail, saw its first patients on August 15.

This assemblage of high-quality programs—Care Now walk-in urgent care, Pottsville Primary Care, Occupational Medicine, Physical Therapy at St. Luke’s, Laboratory and Imaging services—marks Geisinger St. Luke’s entry into the Pottsville medical market. The vast, one-story building underwent extensive renovations since it replaced the McCann School of Business and Technology.

“On behalf of the board, management, physicians and staff of GSL, we are honored and pleased to be able to provide Pottsville residents access to the high-quality, award-winning care for which our organization is well known,” said Gabe Kamarousky, MBA, FACHE, president of Geisinger St. Luke’s Campus. “As an extension of our hospital, patients can expect to receive exceptional treatment and outstanding customer service at this facility.”

Since opening in 2019, GSL’s list of quality achievements, certifications and accreditations has been extensive: Primary Stroke Center, Trauma Center, Chest Pain Center, Leapfrog Safety Rating of A, Leapfrog Top 50 Safest Hospital and Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence award.

Following the ribbon cutting, guided tours of the facility were offered, and refreshments were served to celebrate this inaugural event.

“We are thankful to this community and its leaders for welcoming us to this convenient location,” added Kamarousky, “which is just a short drive from the area’s most modern and growing inpatient facility – Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital.”
