Campaigning brings Corbett to GHS in Danville

 

DANVILLE — Governor Tom Corbett did some campaigning in The Valley Friday.  Among his stops, Corbett paid a visit to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville where he announced a grant for the Genomic Medicine Center in Luzerne County.

 

He said, “I am please today to announce that your program will be receiving a $100,000 investment from our Developed in PA Program.  This medicine center will be home to a world-class, state of the art tele-genomics facility.  Patients will be able to have genomics sequencing completed, interpreted and applied to their healthcare by a team of doctors, councilors and other medical specialists.”

 

Corbett says the Developed in PA Program is a way to increase economic opportunities in the Commonwealth.  “Innovation is at the heart of what we just saw here in telemedicine.  There is no better example of that kind of creative thinking and innovative ideas that is helping Pennsylvania compete with innovations across the world than what we see here at Geisinger.”

 

Prior to the announcement Corbett was shown a demonstration of the eICU system, which allows remote examination and interaction with critical care patients.  Corbett also made some private fundraising stops in The Valley today.
