CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Chambersburg Hospital recently received the 2012 Community Value Index, or CVI, Five-Star hospital award from Cleverley and Associates.
According to Cleverley and Associates, hospitals receiving the award have low costs, low charges, use financial resources efficiently for reinvestment back into the provision of health care, provide a high quality of patient care and are operating with a high degree of community value.
Norman Epstein, president and chief executive officer of Summit Health, noted that a major reinvestment into the community’s health care, a $100 million expansion project at Chambersburg Hospital, is almost complete.
“The new addition to the hospital opens in December,” he said in a news release. “We are proud to provide our neighbors with a soothing, comfortable environment so that they can rest easier and heal faster.”
The project includes a 174,000-square-foot, four-story addition on the north side of Chambersburg Hospital, featuring 171 private, single-patient rooms.
The hospital plans to hold public tours of the new addition in early December.
