Founders’ Vision

The hospitals of Penn Highlands Healthcare have been serving the residents of Northwestern/Central Pennsylvania as non-profit, community organizations for more than 100 years.  A commitment we value and cherish. 

The Founders recognized this commitment in 2011 by establishing Penn Highlands Healthcare on the principles that our community-based and controlled health care system would exist to improve regional access to a wide array of premier primary care and advanced healthcare services while supporting a reverence for life and the worth and dignity for each individual accessing Penn Highlands Healthcare.

We will accomplish the Founders’  Vision by embracing and upholding our system’s mission, vision and values.
