WellSpan Health Breaks Ground on New Shrewsbury Hospital in USA


WellSpan Health plans to construct a new hospital in Shrewsbury, aiming to enhance healthcare accessibility in the area.

The new hospital will feature both an emergency department and 10 inpatient beds, all within a smaller and more easily accessible layout compared to conventional hospital designs.

The new hospital will offer diagnostic services, including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), X-ray, and laboratory services, in addition to its inpatient and emergency care offerings.

The emergency department will address typical urgent care requirements like falls, injuries, burns, and infections. All three of the new hospitals, including Shrewsbury, will be fully licenced and deliver top-notch patient services, consistent with the standards upheld across other WellSpan facilities.

WellSpan is constructing three new hospitals within the next two years, with additional facilities planned for Carlisle and Newberry Township alongside Shrewsbury. These locations were specifically chosen due to their considerable distance from existing hospital services. 

By offering improved access to care and a comprehensive range of services in a more compact setting, the patient experience is anticipated to see significant enhancement.

The new hospital is slated to open in late 2025 and will provide services 24/7, 365 days a year.
