Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center
The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center opened its doors to patients in 1970, and since then has expanded with numerous additions and renovations in order to continue to provide state-of-the-art medical care. We continue our commitment to enhancing the quality of life through improved health, the professional preparation of those who will serve the health needs of others, and the discovery of knowledge that will benefit all. Our objective is to provide a range of fully integrated patient care services for the people of central Pennsylvania and beyond. We strive to be a national leader in pursuing scientific investigation and developing programs to advance medical and scientific knowledge, which will ultimately contribute to the health of the public, the practice of medicine, and the education of health professionals. Our 484-bed facility serves as a regional referral center and is a designated Level I Regional Trauma Center. Three LIFE LION helicopters provide 24-hour-a-day aero-medical service emergency transport staffed by specially trained emergency medical teams.
