Watch the new hospital being built


Under development since 2012 as part of PinnacleHealth’s Vision 2017 plan, West Shore Hospital is now open and now residents of the West Shore will have access to the same quality, world-class care that people have come to expect from PinnacleHealth.

Patients and the community have told us that they want PinnacleHealth’s quality and experience,on the West Shore. By building a hospital, as well as adding private rooms, family-designated waiting rooms, transport, pre-op and recovery areas, we can accommodate that request.

 “This facility will meet a true need within the community and will be a full-service hospital providing excellent care,” says Mark Barabas, FACHE, senior vice president of Operations and chief operating officer at West Shore Hospital. “We anticipate that, with the surgeons and technology available, we will be able to make a range of medical procedures, including orthopedic surgery, much more convenient for West Shore residents.”


 The 188,000 square-foot facility offers:

  • Private patient rooms
  • Seven state of the art operating rooms
  • Three heart catheterization labs
  • A 12-bed intensive care unit (ICU)
  • 18 treatment rooms for Emergency Department
  • Multiple nurses stations on each unit, placing nurses closer to the patients within their care

Services include:

  • Acute medical care
  • Surgical services
    • Breast Surgery
    • Cardiac Surgery
    • Colorectal Surgery
    • General Surgery
    • Gynecological Surgery
    • Gynecological Oncology Surgery
    • Orthopedic Surgery
    • Plastic Surgery
    • Spine Surgery
    • Thoracic Surgery
    • Urological Surgery
  • Cardiology
  • Orthopedics
  • Chronic disease management
  • Transitional care services

More High-Quality, Accessible Care

Proximity to high-quality care is important to improving health. The addition of the West Shore Hospital makes PinnacleHealth’s high standard of care available in an acute care hospital and emergency department within 30 minutes of all patients and physicians within our Dauphin, Perry and Cumberland County service area.

The hospital completes the continuum in a comprehensive network of physicians and other providers, diagnostics and outpatient services already established on the West Shore. This comprehensive network includes the extension of its charitable outreach efforts to a larger community with free screenings and health programs that promote overall health and well-being.

As our community’s population grows and ages, the demand for services and hospital beds increases, too. The private patient rooms in the West Shore Hospital provide an additional 108 hospital beds in our community to improve access for patients everywhere.
The high-tech, high-quality, patient-centered hospital also gives PinnacleHealth a competitive advantage in attracting more high caliber specialists to meet the area’s growing healthcare needs.
