Penn State Health held a ribbon-cutting this week for Penn State Health-Millersville, a new primary-care clinic near the Millersville University Campus.

The health system partnered with Student Lodging Inc. to develop the facility on property owned by Student Lodging on Shenks Lane, just west of Millersville’s Student Memorial Center.

The 11,000 square foot building features 19 exam rooms, two specialty treatment rooms and a student health suite. It cost $4.4 million, according to borough records.

It replaces Penn State Health-Manor, which operated in leased space at 16 Manor Ave., and it is staffed by that location’s former staff. The Manor Avenue location shut down Friday, Feb. 2; the new site began seeing patients the following Monday.
The project is part of a Penn State Health’s $1 billion expansion initiative in Central Pennsylvania in partnership with Highmark health.

Student Lodging is a nonprofit affiliate of Millersville University that develops and manages residence halls and off-campus housing.

Ruth Gundermann, senior director for ambulatory services at Penn State Health, said it is the health system’s first outpatient clinic this close to a university campus.
