SCRANTON — Commonwealth Health Moses Taylor Hospital unveiled its new pediatric wing, which will bring specialty care to Northeastern Pennsylvania.
The 18-bed unit, the first of its kind in the area, boasts a colorful décor and features a Ronald McDonald House lounge and play room. The unit is staffed round-the-clock by board-certified pediatric hospitalists through an agreement between Commonwealth Health and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
The Commonwealth Health/Penn State Hershey alliance will expand in March to include pediatric neurology and cardiology at Moses Taylor.
The opening of the wing coincides with the 25th anniversary of pediatric services at Moses Taylor which began offering the service on Jan. 31, 1990.
