Construction is on track for WellSpan’s $49 million health and surgery center in Hanover, York County to open next spring, bringing more services to the region, WellSpan Health officials said.

Hanover sits at the edge York County and rural Adams County, and those who live there often have to drive to York or farther for services like MRIs, CAT scans and outpatient surgery, said WellSpan Chief Operating Officer John Porter.

The 80,000-square-foot center is designed to provide those services closer to home, Porter said. Better access to services can be key in making sure people get the treatment they need. 

“And there also, frankly, is a hesitation when they need services…that they may not seek services that they would normally need,” Porter said. 

WellSpan plans to hire about 60 people at the location, Porter said. The health system, which recently announced plans to partner with Chambersburg-based Summit Health, employees about 15,000 people around south central Pennsylvania.
