Community Wellness

Health is constant. Everything you do impacts it — and having a partner who helps you make your best health decisions is important. Because there is no “one size fits all” solution in healthcare. WNEP’s Community Wellness campaign promotes health and well-being in northeast and central Pennsylvania. Through our partnership with Geisinger, we bring awareness and information to keep the communities we serve healthy and informed.

This is a belief that’s kept Geisinger going for over 100 years. Founded by Abigail Geisinger noticing the needs of her central Pennsylvania community in 1915, she started a new trend in healthcare. One that put her community first. One that puts you first today.

Over the last century, Geisinger has grown from one hospital in rural Pennsylvania into a health and wellness organization that includes nine hospital campuses, a 550,000-member health plan, two research centers and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. Geisinger has nearly 24,000 employees and more than 1,600 employed physicians working together to bring preventive health and advanced medical care to the people who depend on them.

Working every day to give our communities the best care possible — through primary care, specialty medicine, hospitals, clinics, health insurance, medical education and research — Geisinger is also leading initiatives like Geisinger 65 Forward, MyCode, Geisinger Fresh Food Farmacy® and its Proven Portfolio, which improve healthcare for our friends and families, as well as others across the country.

With our neighbors by our side, we make better health easier.
