After showing its plan to neighbors, Penn State Health is publicizing its layout for a new hospital in Cumberland County.

The hospital is slated for a tract in Hampden Township, near Interstate 81 at Wertzville and Good Hope roads. If the project is approved, construction is expected to start in early 2019.

The details of the hospital have been previously reported. But the sketch plan itself had not been available outside the township office before now.

Penn State Health is the parent of Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. The health system announced plans for the Cumberland County hospital in June. It is an extension of the system’s partnership with Pittsburgh-based insurer Highmark Health and will boost health care competition in the commonwealth’s fastest-growing county.
