3 South Addition

The challenge of medical/surgical nursing is best experienced on this fourteen bed unit where nurses care for patients with complex, multi-system health problems. This unit accepts patients transferred from other hospitals, creating opportunities for the nursing staff to collaborate with the interdisciplinary health care team to care for a broad spectrum of patients.

Our vision is to provide exceptional patient focused care by a team of highly skilled professional providers. We focus on communication, education, and support between staff, patients and their families.

There are 30 beds in this unit.


Self-scheduling is available with a variety of shifts.  Nurses work with the scheduling committee, clinical head nurses, and the nurse manager to develop schedules that meet personal and professional needs.

Registered Nurse with license to practice professional nursing in the state of Pennsylvania, or Registered Nurse from another state with a Temporary PA Practice Permit.  Bachelor of Science in Nursing is preferred.  Trauma certification, BLS and ACLS desired.
