As Northeastern Pennsylvania's largest community hospital, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital is home to an array of state-of-the-art "signature" services that define its role as the region's leader in primary and specialty care. The hospital boasts an impressive medical staff of over 400 physicians, representing nearly 50 medical and surgical specialties. It is also home to Luzerne county's largest workforce, with over 2,000 highly skilled and dedicated employees. With its commitment to the very latest treatment methodologies, the hospital provides its patients with access to the most progressive medical techniques and technologies available in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Over its 130-year history, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital has consistently expanded its horizons to improve its facilities and invest in programs, services and technologies that best meet the health care needs of its patients. For instance, in the fall of 2001, all acute care services previously offered at the Nesbitt Memorial Hospital in Kingston (including Obstetrics and Gynecology) were consolidated at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. In the new and expanded Wilkes-Barre General Hospital location, the newly named Nesbitt Women's and Children's Center continues the long standing tradition of providing area families with outstanding maternity care.
