The new West Shore Hospital is scheduled to open in little more than a week.

PinnacleHealth announced Thursday that the five-story hospital, the first new hospital in central Pennsylvania in decades, will open May 19.

“PinnacleHealth is dedicated to meeting the needs of its West Shore community, and with the new hospital we can provide the same exceptional care people associate with our Harrisburg campuses,” Michael A. Young, PinnacleHealth president and CEO, said in a news release. “”We are making the West Shore a destination for excellent medical care.”

West Shore Hospital is expected to create 500 new health care jobs by 2017.

It will have 108 private rooms, seven operating rooms and a 12-bed intensive car unit, and will offer services in cardiology, orthopedics, surgical services and chronic disease management.

The campus, located next to the Fredricksen Outpatient Center on Technology Parkway in Hampden Township, also offers a walking trail available to the public.
