    Area Highlights

    Penn State Health has opened a new pediatric outpatient center in Lancaster. The new 47,000-square-foot Penn State Health Children’s Lancaster Pediatric Center opened in 2022 and houses more than 40 exam and consultation rooms. It provides a full spectrum of care for children including 20 medical and surgical pediatric specialty and subspecialty services. It also offers consultations with psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists.

    Forbes magazine describes Lancaster as a “newly hip Victorian city—just three hours from New York City—is still one of the U.S.’s best-kept secrets. The center of Amish country is bucolic but boasts a bustling food scene and is quickly becoming a cultural hotbed. The architecture is the real star, so explore the alleys and cobblestone streets by foot, checking out the many repurposed old warehouses that house thriving businesses... The arts are central to Lancaster’s growth, notably the stunning Fulton Theatre and neighboring Prince Street, Lancaster’s gallery row, which pulses with art on summer first Fridays.”
