At Lancaster General Health, our mission is to advance the health and well-being of the communities we serve. In addition to providing advanced medicine and high quality health-care services, we are committed to providing support for a wide range of community health needs. 

Health care is more than treating an illness or performing a surgery. Together with many dedicated partners, we strive to address poverty, substance abuse, behavioral and mental health, food insecurity, family issues, and housing needs.

Empowering Healthy Living

We are committed to making Lancaster County a healthier place for all of us by offering community programs and resources for health and wellness.
