Additional construction at Penn Highlands DuBois continues to change the skyline of our city as our local hospital grows into a regional center for excellence in medicine.

Residents of the greater DuBois area are fortunate to have a facility like Penn Highlands Healthcare in their backyard. Penn Highlands Healthcare is a network of area hospitals formed in 2011, and expanded over the past decade to now include Brookville, Clearfield, DuBois, Elk, Huntingdon, Mon Valley, and Tyrone. Under the Penn Highlands mantle, the seven hospitals benefit greatly from large scale purchasing, operational efficiencies, and physician recruitment and retention. Penn Highlands serves 39 counties from their corporate offices in DuBois.
