Mount Nittany Surgical Center, overseen by the Medical Center, is an advanced, ambulatory, state-of-the-art surgery center dedicated to providing the very best care to patients seeking elective, same-day surgical services. The Surgical Center is located in the Centre Medical Sciences Building off Hospital Drive.
In April 2006, leaders for The Pennsylvania State University, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Mount Nittany Medical Center signed an affiliation agreement to strengthen clinical care and provide additional resources for patients in the Centre County region. The agreement enhances the medical education and research efforts of the organizations and is a natural progression of the long-standing relationship between the three organizations.
In 2010, Mount Nittany Medical Center contributed more than $3 million in care for patients who were either uninsured, under-insured or unable to pay. In addition, medical staff and healthcare professionals volunteer thousands of hours to the community each year through health screenings, lecture series and support groups.
