McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - The new $37 million Fulton County Medical Center opened Sunday.

Sixty-seven long-term care residents, hospital and emergency room patients were transported a half mile from the old site through the efforts of medical center staff, volunteers and representatives of area emergency medical services, according to a news release.

Efforts began at 6 a.m. and were complete by noon, the news release stated.

Some departments moved to the 214 Peach Orchard Road medical center earlier in the week, the release stated.

Normal operations have begun at the medical center. Specialty physician services like urology and podiatry will remain at their building in the Penn's Village Shopping Center.

Offices like community relations, accounting and administration will remain at 216 S. First St.

The Home Care department is now at 213 S. Second St. in what was formally the auxiliary house.

Those who have questions about FCMC services, appointments or directions may call 717-485-3155.


Fulton County Medical Center used Allied Health Systems, a professional moving company specializing in moving hospitals. Construction at the new facility took a year and a half.
