West Shore Hospital ground-breaking celebration took place this week in Mechanicsburg, PA. The 5 story, 108 bed facility is scheduled to be open in 2014. The new Pinnacle Health facility will be located next to the Fredricksen Outpatient Center in Hampden Township, which is part of the high-growth corridor at the Wertzville Road Exit of Interstate 81. The budget for this project is estimated at $150 Million.
