Sheetz Family Health Center Integrates Medical and Educational Services

February 21, 2003

Less than one year after ground was broken, Penn State Altoona's Sheetz Family Health Center is open and ready to serve both the students at the College as well as the Altoona community. The College celebrated the grand opening of the new facility on Wednesday, Feb. 19, with a brief dedication program and tours. The facility is located off of Juniata Gap Road, adjacent to Baker Lane. Penn State Altoona teamed up with Robert Sheetz and the Sheetz Family, along with Central Pennsylvania Health Services Corporation, an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes Altoona Hospital, to create this community partnership on campus. The new Sheetz Family Health Center houses the College's nursing program and student Health and Wellness Center, as well as an on-site Blair Medical Associates physicians' office that will serve the community.
