UPMC Pinnacle closes clinics at Strawberry Square

Following the closure of Strawberry Square in Harrisburg, UPMC Pinnacle said it will temporarily close its facilities in the mall and relocating its staff to another location.

The Harrisburg-based hospital system’s Strawberry Square FamilyCare practice and the Walk-in Center at Strawberry Square FamilyCare clinic will be closed until March 31.

Following the closure, the staff of both the practice and clinic will be relocated to the system’s FamilyCare Silver Spring practice at 21 Waterford Drive, Mechanicsburg.

As an alternative to the walk-in center, UPMC Pinnacle suggests that patients choose other options such as primary care providers, its nurse advice line or nearby urgent care centers.

UPMC Pinnacle announced late last week that it would temporarily limit visitors at its midstate hospitals in order to lower the likelihood of exposure to any illnesses, including COVID-19.

The hospitals include: UPMC Carlisle, UPMC Pinnacle West Shore, UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg, UPMC Pinnacle Community Osteopathic, UPMC Hanover, UPMC Memorial, and UPMC Lititz.

Correction: The story previously mentioned that the UPMC Pinnacle facilities were located in the Capital City Mall.
