Every day across central Pennsylvania, the people of WellSpan Health work together to support this non-profit mission of service—one patient, one community, one unique health care need at a time. We also collaborate with community leaders, area residents and other health care providers to make sure that inpatient, outpatient, home health and physician services are located where they can do the most good for our neighbors. Focusing on the health of the community has inspired us to transform the way we work. We make it as simple as possible for individuals to develop a relationship with our health system and to become healthy and stay that way. Each patient’s information is available to providers at any WellSpan location through our sophisticated electronic health record, and their care is coordinated by teams of physicians, health coaches, social workers and other professionals. This is, we believe, the best way to improve health across our growing, diverse region.
