Hamilton Health Center celebrates its 50th Anniversary with a Gala March 5 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center. The event will host business leaders, providers, and all of those who have helped HHC achieve 50 years of positive impact in the region.

HHC CEO Jeannine Peterson said, “During our 50 years of operation, Hamilton has continued to stay true to our mission of providing quality health care to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. Our growth in services and in geographic boundaries, in response to the growing needs of the Greater Harrisburg community, could not have occurred without our community partners, patients, staff and corporate and foundation supporters.”

HHC has been providing quality medical care to residents of the greater Harrisburg area and Capital Region since 1969. Fifty years later, a one stop state of the art medical mall Hamilton provides care to more than 30,000 men, women and children. Annually, over 100,000 medical, dental and behavioral health visits are completed. HHC also serves more than 6,500 women and children through the WIC Program.

HHC has an onsite pharmacy (The Medicine Shoppe), Imaging/X-rays and Mammograms via UPMC/Pinnacle and on-site Quest Laboratory.  In addition, HHC has an active HIV testing, treatment and counselling program; a Health Resource Center dedicated to the sexual health of our teens; the Center of Excellence program addressing the opioid crisis; the United Way Access to Healthcare (Contact to Care) community care coordinator program; the Triple P Parenting Program, Reach Out to Read early readers program and the Greater Harrisburg Healthy Start and Baby Love programs which assist families in need.

Hamilton has additional locations at Foose and Downey elementary schools and have added sites in Harrisburg (Union Deposit Family Practice), in Millersburg (Hamilton Family Care at Millersburg) and in Newport (Hamilton Health Center of Perry County). Hamilton does not discriminate based on gender, gender identity, race, income, religion, insurance status or ability to pay.

The organization’s theme “Celebrating our Past, Building our Future” reflects Hamilton’s intent to highlight their successes and to unveil future plans.

As the employer of a diversified workforce which includes more than 240 healthcare and administrative professionals, including doctors, dentists, and nurses, as well as billing, customer service, and support staff, Hamilton makes a significant impact on the economic health of our community.
