Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of Sara Marker, LPN, patient care coordinator, to the Mount Nittany Health Breast Care Center.

“Patients can understandably be nervous when they visit the office,” shares Marker. “It’s my job to make sure they feel comfortable asking questions and talking through their concerns. It’s important that they know they are heard.”

Marker earned her associate degree from South Hills School of Business & Technology in State College, Pennsylvania, and her Licensed Practical Nursing degree from the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology in Pleasant Gap, Pennsylvania, where she served as vice president of her graduating class. She was previously employed with Mount Nittany Physician Group Urology for 11 years.  

“I’m thrilled to be continuing my career with Mount Nittany Health,” Marker says. “The health system’s patient-first philosophy is parallel to my own. It’s a place where I’m proud to say I work.”

Outside of the office, Marker enjoys hiking and being outdoors. Her favorite thing to do, she says, is spend time with family and friends, especially her five-year-old daughter, Brynley.

Mount Nittany Health’s Breast Care Center, located within Mount Nittany Health – Park Avenue at 1850 East Park Avenue, Suite 105 in State College, offers comfort, convenience and compassion for breast imaging needs, including digital mammograms, breast ultrasounds, breast MRI interpretation, needle localizations and biopsies.
