Mid Valley Hospital Converting To Clinic
PECKVILLE – The Mid Valley Hospital in Lackawanna County will be turned into a walk-in clinic this summer, according to officials with Commonwealth Health.
Starting July 1, 2014, the facility will be knows as Commonwealth Health Mid Valley Outpatient Center, according to news release.
The facility will no longer offer inpatient or emergency room services.
Officials said the walk-in center will include an urgent care that offers treatment for minor illnesses and non-life-threatening injuries. It will also offer physicals, immunizations and outpatient services such as radiology and lab services.
Commonwealth Health cited a drop in admissions and changes to reimbursement under the Affordable Care Act as reasons for converting the hospital to a clinic.
