Troy, Pa. – Global Tungsten & Powders Corp. (GTP) in Towanda, Pa. recently presented a $25,000 check to the New Guthrie Troy Community Hospital Capital Campaign to support the building of the new hospital and medical campus in Troy, Pa.
Dr. Andreas Lackner, President and CEO of GTP and Craig Rieder, Director of Human Resources, presented the check to Denise Ives, Vice President of Guthrie Resource Development at a ceremony at Global Tungsten & Powders Corp. in Towanda, Pa.
“We’d like to thank GTP for their generous contribution,” said Denise Ives, Guthrie Resource Development Vice President. “Donations such as this show the generosity of our local community and make the construction of the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital possible.”
The new, $30 million 65,000 square foot medical campus in Troy, Pa. will replace the existing hospital and physician office facilities. The site will offer scenic views from 25 all-private inpatient rooms, providing enhanced comfort and privacy to patients. The modern facilities will also help staff manage the unique medical needs of each patient. The new facility will allow the hospital's infrastructure to be built to today's standards and will also support Guthrie’s efforts in recruiting and retaining outstanding physicians and clinical staff.
Features of the new facility will include a expanded Emergency Department and a helipad on the campus to expedite transfers of critically ill or injured patients to the nearest trauma center. Technology will also be upgraded in the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital, with use of electronic health records and telemedicine to improve access to specialty services and reduce travel time. Construction is anticipated to take approximately a year.
