Ground Broken on WellSpan Shrewsbury Hospital

Apr 28, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The new hospital, located in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, is expected to open in late 2025.

Officials from WellSpan Health and Emerus held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the much-anticipated WellSpan Shrewsbury Hospital, which will elevate healthcare access for residents in York County, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding region.

The innovative WellSpan Shrewsbury Hospital in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, will include an emergency department and 10 inpatient beds in a smaller, more accessible footprint than traditional hospitals. Shrewsbury Hospital will be conveniently located in a fast-growing part of the region, ensuring essential medical services are readily available no matter where an individual may live, work and play.

It will operate 24/7, 365 days a year and is projected to open in late 2025. It is one of three new hospitals WellSpan is building in partnership with Emerus over the next two years, including facilities in Carlisle and Newberry Township, Pennsylvania. The sites were chosen because of their extensive distance from current hospital services. The improved access to care and wide range of services streamlined in a smaller setting should improve the patient experience.

In addition to inpatient and emergency care, WellSpan Shrewsbury Hospital will provide diagnostic capabilities including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), X-ray and laboratory services. The emergency department will treat common emergency care needs such as falls, injuries, burns and infections. All three of the new hospitals, including Shrewsbury, will be fully licensed and offer patient services.
