CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Patrick O’Donnell, president and CEO of Summit Health and executive vice president for WellSpan Health, presented the fiscal year 2018 annual report at Chambersburg Hospital’s and Waynesboro Hospital’s board of directors’ annual meetings.
“While by virtue, our annual report reflects the past year, our accomplishments and accolades, our expansions and evolution of services, this year’s look back, I believe, is truly more a glimpse into what our future holds,” he said. “We are starting a new journey of hope as we transition into our affiliation with WellSpan Health. WellSpan values our culture, organization, employees, community, and the concept of local care. It is a partner that will help take us to the next level.”
O’Donnell said Summit Health and WellSpan Health have partnered for stroke services, cancer services, and NICU services for several years ahead of the affiliation.
He also emphasized the strengths of Summit Health through the 2018 fiscal year.
Summit Health reported revenue of $552.5 million for fiscal year 2017-18, up from $552.3 million in 2017. Summit Health invested more than $56.1 million into the community. Of that, more than $36 million was put toward charity care.
In the past year, Summit Health has added Franklin County’s only dermatologist and added acupuncture and massage therapy. Construction began on a new medical office building in Greencastle, Pa., aiming to improve access to care by bringing additional specialty practices to that community.
“I’m proud of all we have accomplished in this community, the lives we have touched, the hope we have inspired. I feel honored and privileged that we will continue to be a beacon of hope for the community as we continue to inspire hope for our future, O’Donnell said.
