Ground has broken on a $900m expansion of the Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Centre in Wilkes-Barre, northeast Pennsylvania. The scheme is being overseen by Turner Construction and designed by Francis Cauffman Architects.

The project will add an 11-floor tower and expansions to the hospital’s emergency medicine, critical care, trauma care, surgical services and advanced cardiovascular services.

Dave Kaminski, Turner Construction’s vice president, said: “This campus expansion will advance healthcare in the region and meet needs in the community.

“We look forward to working with Geisinger, our trade partners and the local community.”

The first phase of the project includes construction of the tower; the expansion of the emergency room is scheduled to be completed in 2028.

Work on other areas of the medical centre is due to be finished by 2030.

The hospital notes that between 2023 and 2028, the region’s population of people over-65 is expected to grow by 11%.
