Client News: WellSpan Aspers Health Center opens

Primary care plus several outpatient services of Gettysburg Hospital under one roof

The WellSpan Aspers Health Center opened its doors on Monday, Aug. 2, offering the people of upper Adams County convenient access to primary health care services as well as outpatient lab, imaging and rehabilitation services.

The facility, located at 2060 Carlisle Road (Route 34) near Aspers, is the new home to two established WellSpan Medical Group practices – Biglerville Family Medicine and Adams Cumberland Family Medicine.

“WellSpan Aspers Health Center demonstrates WellSpan’s commitment to making quality health care services available and convenient for people in upper Adams County,” said Thomas McGann, M.D., president of WellSpan Medical Group and senior vice president of WellSpan Health.

“We believe the Aspers Health Center is convenient for people in this area to access. This will be critical as the area grows and the need for quality health care services increases,” McGann said.

The Aspers Health Center also offers several outpatient services of Gettysburg Hospital under one roof:

  • WellSpan Imaging offers patients walk-in, diagnostic x-ray exams.
  • WellSpan Lab Services offers patients a convenient location for routine blood draws, urine collection, EKG, glucose tolerance testing (by appointment) and specimen drop off.
  • Beginning in mid-August, WellSpan Rehabilitation will offer patients physical therapy services.
  • Around the same time, the center will begin hosting a Coumadin clinic each Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon to assist patients with management of anticoagulation medication.

In addition to housing the two practices and outpatient services, the Aspers Health Center has been designed around a new patient care model.

During the project’s development stage, WellSpan Medical Group leaders spent extensive time researching physician care models around the country.

The Aspers Health Center incorporates several new patient care and access features that will serve as a model for other WellSpan Medical Group practices in Adams and York counties.
