Lancaster County families now have even greater access to specialty pediatric care close to home with the opening of the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital -- Lancaster Outpatient practice site. The new practice site, at 2170 Noll Drive, Lancaster, off Rohrerstown Road near Stauffer’s of Kissel Hill, provides easy access to a full array of specialty services for children and adolescents in one convenient location.

Pediatric specialties previously provided at the outpatient practice site on Good Drive in Lancaster, including pediatric pulmonary, gastroenterology, rheumatology, nephrology, infectious disease and ventilator-dependent services, are now available at this new location just two miles way.

The Penn State Hershey Children’s Heart Group also will move from its current location at 217 Harrisburg Avenue to the new Noll Drive site in mid-March.

Craig Hillemeier, medical director at  Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
