A History of the Laurel Health Centers

The Laurel Health Centers can trace their roots back to the Blossburg State General Hospital, which began serving patients in 1891. When the Blossburg hospital closed its doors in 1972, local residents were determined to preserve access to care and founded North Penn Comprehensive Health Services (NPCHS). North Penn opened its first family health center in 1973 on the former hospital site and expanded to include behavioral health and substance abuse treatment services the following year.

 

Over the next two decades, North Penn opened primary care clinics in Mansfield, Wellsboro, Westfield, Elkland, and Lawrenceville. In 1988, North Penn entered into partnership with Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital to form Laurel Health System, renaming its clinics to the Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Behavioral Health. In 2012, Laurel Health System affiliated with a Williamsport-based health system, now known as UPMC Susquehanna. North Penn elected to remain independent as federally qualified health centers to better care for vulnerable and underinsured patients on a sliding fee scale, but continues to partner closely with UPMC Wellsboro.

 

North Penn has been providing high-quality, patient-focused care throughout rural Tioga County and the surrounding communities for 48 years. North Penn consists of six federally qualified health centers known as the Laurel Health Centers, an outpatient behavioral health office called Laurel Behavioral Health, the Laurel Health & Wellness Center, Laurel Pediatrics, and Laurel Dental Services. We are committed to serving all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Our sites offer a sliding fee scale and 340b discounted pharmacy program to ensure all patients are able to receive the quality care they need with the compassion they deserve. 

 

Our doctors, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, counselors, and office staff work together as a strong, experienced, and unified healthcare team dedicated to providing a great patient experience and expert care every time. The Laurel Health Centers, HRSA National Quality Award winners, offer convenient primary care and behavioral health services for the whole family throughout Tioga County, including Blossburg, Mansfield, Lawrenceville, Westfield, Elkland, and Wellsboro, PA.

 

Services offered include family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, preventive wellness care, mental and behavioral health, nutrition counseling, diabetes education, sports medicine, dental services, medication-assisted treatment, recovery and support services, chiropractic care, health insurance education, and chronic disease management.

 

Laurel Behavioral Health offers individual, family, and marital therapy sessions, including play therapy for children, at each health center and in its outpatient office in Wellsboro. Counseling is available for a diverse range of mental and emotional health concerns, including depression, anxiety, panic, eating disorders, parent-child difficulties, and relationship issues.
