History of UPMC Wellsboro

In 2012, Laurel Health System — including Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital and The Green Home — joined the former Susquehanna Health System.

This union gave the entire Tioga-Lycoming region:

  • Improved health care close to home.
  • More treatment options.
  • Better results.

Joining UPMC to Expand Care and Offer More Choice

In October 2016, Susquehanna Health joined UPMC who supports us in advancing our goals.

This includes:

  • Expanding health care services.
  • Maintaining a patient-focused mission.
  • Investing in health IT.
  • Offering more health insurance choice for the region.

UPMC is the largest health care insurer in western Pa. We're also the #1 insurance plan in the state for quality and member satisfaction.

We partner with the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences.

Pitt's med school:

  • Is 5th in the U.S. for NIH research funding.
  • Offers the 3rd largest residency and fellowship program in the nation.
