In the fall of 2001, all acute care services at Nesbitt Memorial Hospital were transferred to and consolidated at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital – making it the region's largest and finest acute care hospital. Following extensive renovations, Nesbitt Memorial Hospital was renamed Nesbitt Memorial Medical Center and the majority of our behavioral health services relocated into the reconstructed facility in the summer of 2002.
In addition to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, Wyoming Valley Health Care System also includes our affiliates:
- Behavioral Health Services of Wyoming Valley – including inpatient and outpatient mental health care and substance abuse services for children, adolescents and adults.
- Wyoming Valley Manor – offering retirement, long-term care and hospice care facilities for patients or seniors.
- Wilkes-Barre Academic Medicine, LLC (WBAM) – providing primary and obstetric care to the under-served of our community. WBAM also offers the Wyoming Valley Family Practice Residency Program, which provides practical and educational training to student physicians.
- Visiting Nurse Association – providing in-home nursing, personal and hospice care to residents throughout Luzerne and surrounding counties.
Although we are a large and complex integrated health care system, we are also an organization of caring people. Local people. Providing quality health care to the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania. It's part of our Vision. And it's what we do every day.
