After a building dedication and community tours, Mount Nittany Medical Center's new East Wing opened for patients in August 2010.
With large private rooms, spacious bathrooms, and state-of-the-art patient and provider technology, the new rooms of the East Wing promised—and are delivering—a better patient experience.
This three-story, 65,000 square-foot patient tower has increased the total bed capacity of Mount Nittany Medical Center by 67, and includes an expanded Intensive Care Unit, as well as dedicated oncology and orthopedics units.
The project was funded mostly by the sale of bonds, but also received a $5 million Infrastructure and Facilities Improvement Program (IFIP) grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, and over $12.5 million in gifts from private individuals and corporations.
Commitment to Distinction: The Campaign for Mount Nittany Medical Center was led by local physician Jonathan Dranov, MD, co-chairs, Joe and Sue Paterno, and a 25-member steering committee. In a little over 18 months, the Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center reached its $12.5 million goal and capped off the first successful multi-million dollar campaign in Mount Nittany Medical Center's 107-year history.
The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center wishes to express deep appreciation to our campaign leadership and the over 475 donors who contributed to Commitment to Distinction and through that effort, improved inpatient care for people in our service region.
