MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -
The brand new West Shore hospital is now open for business.
Its focus will be on general surgery like open heart and orthopedic surgery. More than 100 surgeries are already scheduled at the facility in Hampden Township this week.
PinnacleHealth says patients rooms are state-of-the-art.
A spokesperson for the new hospital on Technology Parkway says it is filling a gap, adding that for some people in need of an emergency room, this will take their drive from 30 minutes down to only five.
The facility officially opened its doors at 5:30 a.m. Monday.
