Watch the new hospital being built


Under development since 2012 as part of PinnacleHealth’s Vision 2017 plan, West Shore Hospital is now open. West shore residents have access to the same quality, world-class care that Pennsylvanians 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 with features like private rooms, family-designated waiting rooms, and transport, pre-op and recovery areas, we have accommodated 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 the Emergency Department
  • Multiple nurse 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
    • Gynecologic Surgery
    • Gynecologic 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 puts acute care services and an emergency department within 30 minutes of all patients and physicians in our Dauphin, Perry and Cumberland 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. Included is an extension of PinnacleHealth’s 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 also increases. The private patient rooms in the West Shore Hospital provide an additional 108 hospital beds in our community.
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.
