Pocono Medical Center to Build New Hospital Campus On 40 Acres in Tannersville

In October 2014, Pocono Medical Center (PMC) announced plans to increase and improve access by constructing a state-of-the-art second campus hospital facility, called Pocono Medical Center West, on a 40-acre site in Tannersville, Pocono Township owned by the Farda Family and DF Pocono Associates L.P.

Pocono Medical Center West will feature an emergency department, and in conjunction with its existing ED and Level III Trauma Center, will provide facilities sized to accommodate the approximately 80,000 annual emergency visits that make PMC Pennsylvania’s third busiest hospital emergency department. Other specific plans for the new campus are being finalized.

“Pocono Medical Center West will allow us to bring the most sophisticated healthcare technology and the highest quality care to an expanding number of patients here in Monroe County,” said Jeff Snyder, President and CEO of Pocono Medical Center.

During the past decade, PMC has focused on enhancing and adding to the inpatient and outpatient clinical services at its headquarters campus in East Stroudsburg and at more than 20 additional locations. Significant investments have been made in the ESSA Heart & Vascular Institute, the Mattioli Emergency Center, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Trauma Center, the Hughes Cancer Center, Bartonsville Healthcare Center, Pocono Ambulatory Surgery Center, and the West End Healthcare Center, expected to open in early 2015.

Snyder added, “With these investments in key clinical services in place, it’s time to focus on enhancing our physical plant and expanding our services to the primary areas of population growth in Monroe County.”

Pocono Medical Center was founded in East Stroudsburg in 1915. With more than 200 physicians and more than 1,850 staff members, it is one of Monroe County’s oldest and largest employers, offering a full complement of clinical and acute care services for Monroe and surrounding community residents.
