Foundation supporters get a preview of the new cardiovascular pavilion


Donors take part in a behind-the-scenes tour of the new cardiovascular pavilion at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Scheduled to open this fall, Mount Nittany Health Foundation donors who supported the new cardiovascular pavilion at Mount Nittany Medical Center were invited to tour the facility on May 27 for a preview of the space. More than 30 donors from our generous community were onsite and walked through the space with Mount Nittany Health cardiologists and staff, Foundation, and facilities teams.

“It is important for me to know that we have good care close to home,” says Andy Charney, donor. “I don’t want to have to travel to be taken care of nor do I want my family to stay in a hotel three hours away,” adds Charney. “We are grateful to know that this service is provided right in our back yard.”

The donors were treated to a light lunch and conversation with Kathleen Rhine, president and CEO, Mount Nittany Health; Anthony Cardell, MD, cardiologist, Mount Nittany Physician Group; Albert Zoda, MD, FACC, cardiology, Mount Nittany Physician Group; and Christopher Kocher, MD, cardiology, Mount Nittany Physician Group.

The 26,000-square-foot cardiovascular pavilion will include an updated cardiac catheterization lab and electrophysiology lab spaces, complete with new imaging and monitoring technology. With the patient experience in mind, a large waiting area, situated within the sunlight structure; eight to ten convenient flex bay patient areas; and bright, comfortable patient meeting areas are just some of the updated features that will help us serve the growing number of people who trust us with their heart.

To date, the community has committed $4.5 million through Mount Nittany Health Foundation to support the new cardiovascular pavilion. In addition, the 29th Annual Mount Nittany Health Golf Classic, which will be held Saturday, August 10, 2019, at the Penn State Golf Courses, will again support the new pavilion. The Golf Classic committee has committed to raising $1 million by 2020 for the pavilion. To date, the committee has raised more than $650,000. All are invited to support the Golf Classic committee’s “Driving to a Million” effort as they enter the final stretch of the campaign. Visit to learn more.
