A History of the Laurel Health Centers


The Laurel Health Centers trace their roots back to the Blossburg State General Hospital, which began serving patients in 1891. When the Blossburg hospital closed its doors in 1972, residents were determined to preserve local access to care and founded our organization, then known as North Penn Comprehensive Health Services (NPCHS).


North Penn opened its first family health center in 1973 on the former hospital site and expanded to include behavioral health and substance abuse treatment services the following year. Over the next two decades, North Penn opened primary care clinics in Mansfield, Wellsboro, Westfield, Elkland, and Lawrenceville and focused on building its complement of services to offer robust, comprehensive healthcare locally.


In 1988, North Penn entered into partnership with Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital to form Laurel Health System, rebranding its clinics to the Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Behavioral Health. In 2012, when the other parts of the health system merged with a Williamsport-based health system to become Susquehanna Health, the Laurel Health Centers separated and returned to being a fully independent organization, retaining our Laurel Health name.


In 2023, Laurel Health celebrated its 50th anniversary. We are incredibly proud and grateful to reach this milestone, and we look forward to another 50 years of caring for our communities!
