Coordinated Health held a ribbon cutting and open house July 11 at its new state-of-the-art medical complex at 26 Station Circle in Humboldt Station, adjacent to the Humboldt Industrial Park in Hazle Township.
Senator John Yudichak and Representative Tarah Toohil joined officials from Coordinated Health, CAN DO, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce and Hazle Township in providing remarks as Coordinated Health cut the ribbon on its new facility, which features expanded orthopedic services as well as a walk-in Orthopedic Injury Center and Care on Demand location where patients can see a specialist without the need for an appointment.
CAN DO President and CEO Kevin O’Donnell, who welcomed those in attendance and provided introductions for several of the speakers, talked about the benefits this new facility brings to Greater Hazleton. “This medical complex has an orthopedic surgery center with a full range of orthopedic specialties and an occupational therapy area. Having immediate access to health care like this right in our industrial park is an advantage to the companies and its employees,” he said. “We are very pleased that Coordinated Health chose to open this facility in our region’s largest industrial park and look forward to many years of working together to improve and maintain the health of our local workforce.”
Coordinated Health CEO Dr. Emil Dilorio and President and COO Amy Nyberg both provided comments during the ceremony and were joined by physicians Dr. Thomas Meade, Dr. Christopher Wagener and Dr. Marcos Martinez. Meade and Wagener are the department chairs of orthopedic knee surgery and orthopedic spine surgery, respectively, and Martinez specializes in sports medicine and is team physician for the Penn State Hazleton athletic department. Additional speakers included Chamber President Mary Malone, Hazle Township Supervisors Chairman Jim Montone and Humboldt Park Association President Brian Poveromo.
Dr. Dilorio said, “In this new location, we are the first to offer patients in the Hazleton community access to all five orthopedic subspecialties to address pain and injuries associated with the knee and hip, shoulder, hand and wrist, and spine, as well as women’s health services.”
The new 25,000 square-foot facility is more than double the size of Coordinated Health’s previous clinic location on Church Street and now offers the full spectrum of orthopedic specialties, women’s health and primary care services. The facility includes expanded physician clinic space and expanded space for physical and occupational therapy and X-ray. In addition, there is a dedicated pain suite for the non-surgical treatment of back and neck pain.
The new facility is not an outpatient location of a hospital and therefore facility fees no longer apply for office visits. In addition, patients will have access to bilingual services at the new location.
Coordinated Health is an integrated healthcare network with locations throughout eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey. The company employs more than 1,300 highly skilled personnel across 18 multi-specialty medical campuses, including two hospitals, two ambulatory surgical centers, six walk-in care on demand centers and six orthopedic injury centers.
