Sunbury Community Hospital: A Legacy of Care

With a rich tradition in providing quality healthcare to the Greater Susquehanna Valley and surrounding areas, Sunbury Community Hospital celebrates 120 years of service. Since the hospital’s doors opened for the first time in 1895, the facility has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the community.
A Joint Commission-accredited facility, offering 24/7 emergency services, orthopedic treatment, and laboratory services among other specialties and services, Sunbury Community Hospital continues the mission its founders set forth in the Hill Section of Sunbury in the late 1800’s.
In 1895, the hospital’s founders realized that the need for healthcare close to home was essential to the future success of the region – and thus the Mary M. Packer Hospital was started in Sunbury. Before the Packer Hospital, many in the area needed to travel outside of the region to arrive at the nearest hospital.
For more than 50 years the Packer Hospital served the community until it was agreed that in order to continue serving the residents and visitors of the region an updated facility was needed.
Upon the completion of a construction project in 1951, the Packer Hospital transformed into Sunbury Community Hospital at its current location at 350 N. 11th St., Sunbury.
Since its inception, the hospital has continued to evolve, adding specialties and staff to provide the needed care in the region.
One noticeable change to the facility since its construction in the 1950s is the addition of an updated emergency room several years ago. The department features large, private rooms for patients seeking emergency care, as well as a “fast track” area.
Along with quality care, Sunbury’s emergency room also offers the 30-Minute-or-Less ER Service Pledge. The pledge means that the hospital staff strives to see each patient by a medical professional in the ER within 30 minutes of their arrival in the department.
The faster patients are able to be seen, the faster they are able to receive the care they need. This effort by the staff allows patients to spend less time in the waiting area and more time receiving care.
Sunbury Community Hospital prides itself in providing care in a personalized and compassionate manner. To the staff, patients are not numbers but friends, neighbors and family members.
The staff works with patients to provide the care they need, explaining and discussing treatment plans.
The hospital offers a range of specialties and services including: adult behavioral health; cardiac rehabilitation;  cardiopulmonary services; ear, nose and throat care, Intensive Care Unit; diagnostic imaging services; medical/surgical unit; neurology; nutritional counseling; orthopedic services; outpatient surgery and endoscopy center; Orthopedics; Otolaryngology services; Physical and occupational therapy; Sleep laboratory; surgical services; and women’s health services.
Among its medical staff, Dr. Jennifer Rager, D.O., offers ear, nose and throat services to the area. As an ENT specialist, Dr. Rager treats conditions including, but not limited to: ear infections, hearing problems, chronic sinus infections, seasonal allergies and throat problems.
Beyond the hospital care, Sunbury Community Hospital offers many educational and outreach programs throughout the year to help inform the public, continuing to be a resource to the community.
The Healthy Woman Program is open to women of all ages. The program is designed to inform the community’s women about healthy lifestyles and healthcare. The information presented at events is aimed to empower women to make smart healthcare decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
Healthy Woman is a free program to join at the hospital and holds several events throughout the year.
With a membership to Senior Circle, those over the age of 50 receive a number of benefits including monthly activities, day trips, luncheons and much more.
To learn more about Healthy Woman or Senior Circle, visit to contact Barbara Aucker at 570-286-3339.
Throughout its 120 year history, Sunbury Community Hospital has evolved while continuing to provide quality care to its community and region. Made up of dedicated staff, Board of Trustees and volunteers, Sunbury Community Hospital is committed to providing the services needed by its patients.
