About Penn State Hershey Surgery

In 1963, The M. S. Hershey Foundation offered $50 million to The Pennsylvania State University to establish a medical school and teaching hospital in Hershey. With this grant and $21.3 million from the U.S. Public Health Service, the University built a medical school, teaching hospital, and research center. Ground was broken in 1966, and Penn State's College of Medicine opened its doors to the first class of students in 1967. Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center accepted its first patients in 1970.

The original buildings at Penn State Hershey Medical Center included the Medical Science Building and medical center, Animal Research Farm, Laundry and Steam Plant, and University Manor Apartments. Since 1970, the campus has grown from 318 to 550 acres. Many additions have been made to the academic and patient-care facilities.

Penn State Hershey Medical Center has completed several carefully planned construction projects. Additions were made to reflect a steady increase in patient demand for services and to expand research and teaching programs.

Basic and clinical research is conducted at Penn State Hershey Medical Center and is supported by more than $100 million in awards from federal, state, and private agencies, businesses, and individuals.

At the end of June 2012, Penn State Hershey Medical Center admitted nearly 27,000 patients and provided care through over 883,000 outpatient and 61,000 emergency-service visits. Penn State Hershey Medical Center has over 9,000 employees and 400 volunteers, and the College of Medicine enrolls 800 students annually.

Memories and Milestones chronicles the Medical Center’s improbable origins and celebrates the vision of our founders, its impact on the Hershey Community and central Pennsylvania, as well as the Medical Center's key contributions to medicine and science.

The Department of Surgery consists of 11 clinical divisions and sections and two research divisions providing state of the art care and scholarly activity in all of the specialty disciplines. Together, they offer a wide range of high quality services and procedures to referring physicians and their patients using state of the art diagnostic procedures and surgical techniques.
