The approximately 60 employees at the Lemoyne and Carlisle locations of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Associates (PCCMA), including 10 physicians and nine advanced practice providers, were welcomed into Penn State Health today at events that also celebrated their new names: Penn State Health Medical Group – Lemoyne and Penn State Health Medical Group – Wilson Street.

Becoming a part of the Penn State Health network allows PCCMA to offer local residents enhanced access to complete, specialized pulmonary and critical care close to home, in coordination with the future Hampden Medical Center and Penn State Health’s flagship Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

Since its start in 1978, PCCMA has been recognized as a leading resource for treatments for a wide range of diseases and illnesses, including COPD, asthma, lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. At their sleep laboratory in Lemoyne, they evaluate and treat disorders including insomnia, narcolepsy, REM sleep behavior disorder, snoring and sleep apnea.

PCCMA’s locations see more than 24,000 patients each year. They also provide critical care services for many community hospitals in the region, including UPMC Pinnacle locations in Harrisburg, Carlisle and the West Shore.
