Residents of the greater DuBois area are fortunate to have a facility like Penn Highlands Healthcare in their backyard. Today’s Penn Highlands is the result of decades of effort and planning for the future – and that work continues. The recently completed West Wing Annex Project is part of a $111 million expansion that will include eight major projects, dramatically changing the services Penn Highlands can provide. The 50,000 square foot West Wing Annex Project adds five floors with space for a new cafeteria and kitchen, expanded surgical services, an Ambulatory Surgery Center, plus room for expansions of existing programs, a physicians’ lounge and administration space.

Penn Highlands’ Master Facilities Plan sets the goal of becoming a Level III Trauma Center within the next three years and calls for the addition of up to 100 providers (physician and advance practice providers) as well as over 300 professional staff members, to include nurses and support services. The healthcare system was recently awarded $500,000 to help fund the creation of a new Behavioral Health Hospital, to be located on the PH DuBois campus. The facility is expected to serve 3,200 patients annually and create 163 jobs.
