IMG_1961NANTICOKE, January 9, 2014 – State Sen. John Yudichak (D-Luzerne/Carbon) today released the following statement regarding opening of a $3.8 million Geisinger health care facility in Nanticoke City.

“I am very thankful Geisinger has made the decision to bring its national reputation, its private investment dollars and the new jobs that come with it to downtown Nanticoke. Geisinger’s beautiful new health care facility is one more step forward in the revitalization of downtown Nanticoke.”

“I applaud Mayor Richard Wiaterowski, City Council, and the members of the Nanticoke Municipal Authority for advancing projects like the Geisinger health facility, LCCC’s Francis S. & Mary Gill Carrozza, R.N. Health Science Center and LCCC’s Joseph A. Paglianite Culinary Arts Institute that are all part of a sustainable, long-term plan for turning around the fortunes of Nanticoke’s business district.”

“Bringing the national prominence of Geisinger to our city was a team effort – but the leaders of that team who had the vision to invest in Nanticoke are Dr. Glenn Steele, President of Geisinger, and Lee Meyers, Vice President for Community Practice, and I am certain that without their commitment we would not be cutting the ribbon on Geisinger Nanticoke today.”
