Chambersburg (Pa.) Hospital

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Chambersburg Hospital’s laboratory received accreditation from the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists, or CAP, following an on-site inspection. The laboratory, under the direction of Dr. Michael J. Rupp, was recognized for providing quality laboratory services.

During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality-control procedures, staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the laboratory.

The hospital’s lab also received accreditation for its blood-transfusion services from the American Association of Blood Banks.

Chambersburg Hospital is an affiliate of Summit Health, which offers eight locations for blood-drawing services in Franklin and Cumberland counties.

Leitersburg Cinemas

So far this year, Leitersburg Cinemas has given away more than $5,000 in cash to local organizations through the Frequent Movie Card fundraiser. The program is like a loyalty card for customers, giving them freebies as they get their card punched repeatedly, but with every punch, $1 is also given back to the organization indicated on the card.

As of last count, 68 organizations around the area are participating in the fundraising program. A complete list can be found at

Leitersburg Cinemas’ owners, Rich Daughtridge and Dave Schleigh, have some major improvements planned for 2012.

One of the most popular improvements from the beginning was the installation of VIP seating — in the form of large leather recliners — in two of the 10 auditoriums. Based on demand, 100 more VIP seats have been ordered for installation early this year. The VIP auditoriums also serve as the “Dinner and a Movie” venue on Saturday nights. Dinner and a Movie events normally take place every other Saturday, and feature two different movies from which to pick.

VIP seating costs $7 for matinees and $12 after 5 p.m. Dinner and a Movie costs $24.95 per person and includes a movie ticket, popcorn, appetizer, entrée, drink, dessert and coffee. Dinner and a Movie tickets are only available in advance.
