Geisinger Health System provides services to over 3 million people in 48 counties throughout northeastern, central and south-central Pennsylvania, notes the company's website. The system conducts research and clinical trials in addition to offering specialties including cancer treatment, pediatrics, women's health, transplants and neurosurgery.
The system began with the George F. Geisinger Memorial Hospital, a 70-bed hospital constructed in the early 1900s under the direction of 85-year-old Abigail Geisinger, Mr. Geisinger's widow. Mrs. Geisinger selected Harold Foss, M.D., who had completed a fellowship under Dr. William Mayo and the Mayo brothers, as the hospital's first head surgeon, according to Geisinger Health System.
