Hamilton Health Center Cuts Ribbon at Steelton Location, Plans to Expand Services

Local officials cut the ribbon at the Hamilton Health Center location in Steelton.

A new health care facility will promote the well-being of Steelton residents.

On Thursday morning, Harrisburg-based nonprofit Hamilton Health Center cut the ribbon on a new 20,000-square-foot location in Steelton, expanding its operations.

Hamilton Health broke ground on the project in March 2023. The new facility at 120 N. Front St. is the organization’s fifth location in central Pennsylvania, with other locations in Harrisburg, Newport, Millersburg and Lower Paxton Township.

“Today, the residents of Steelton and the surrounding area have a healthcare facility that is even closer to home,” said Terese DeLaPlaine, president and CEO of Hamilton Health Center.

The new center is part of a mixed-use development, The Steel Works project, developed by Wormleysburg-based Integrated Development Partners. The development includes Hamilton Health Center, a retail store and an apartment complex.

The health center will officially open to patients on Monday, July 15, and will offer a full spectrum of family care for men, women and children.

“This is an exciting time for Hamilton and it’s all part of our ongoing mission to provide care to everyone in the community who needs it,” DeLaPlaine said.

The building consists of two floors, each with 10,000 square feet of space, including nine exam rooms and a designated area for future expansion. There is currently one physician on staff, and the center has plans to add more.

In the coming months, the center will add a full-service pharmacy, with a drive-through, and behavioral health services, substance abuse services, and a WIC nutrition program office. They will also host Baby Love, Center of Excellence, and Healthy Start programs.

Steelton Mayor Ciera Dent emphasized the need for a health care facility closer to Steelton residents. She emphasized that this is important because many Steelton residents lack transportation options.

“I’m super excited and I thank Hamilton Health for being here,” Dent said. “We’re going to have a great time with Hamilton Health.”
