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, rebranding its clinics to the Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Behavioral Health. In 2012, the other parts of Laurel Health System affiliated with a Williamsport-based health system while the Laurel Health Centers separated and returned to being a fully independent organization.

 

As federally qualified health centers we care for vulnerable and underinsured patients on a sliding fee scale to assure everyone receives the care they need. Laurel Health has been providing high-quality, patient-focused care throughout rural Tioga County and the surrounding communities for nearly 50 years. Laurel Health consists of the Laurel Health Centers (seven family medicine / specialty care federally qualified health centers), Laurel Behavioral Health (outpatient behavioral health office), the Laurel Health & Wellness Center, Laurel Pediatrics, and three Laurel Dental offices in Blossburg, Lawrenceville, and Towanda, PA.

 

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 offer convenient family medicine, behavioral health services, and specialty care for the whole family throughout Tioga and Bradford Counties, including Blossburg, ElklandLawrenceville, Mansfield, Towanda, Troy, Wellsboro, and Westfield, PA.
