Scarnati Looks Over New Physician Assistant Classroom At Charles Cole Hospital Joint Program With Lock Haven University

First Class Of 12 Physician Assistant Students To Start May 17th

Walt Eisenhauer, physician assistant program director at Lock Haven University, at right, shows Sen. Joe Scarnati, second from left, LHU’s new physician assistant classroom at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital Thursday.


Also pictured, are from left, Ed Pitchford, CCMH president and chief executive officer, Scarnati, Dr. Thomas Ormond, dean, college of education and human services at LHU, and Eisenhauer.

Thursday’s visit is the first time Scarnati has visited CCMH since announcing funding from the State Department of Education in September 2008.

LHU used the funding for infrastructure and capital improvements related to expanding the master’s level PA program into Coudersport and Harrisburg.

LHU will welcome the inaugural class of 12 PA students in Coudersport May 17, some with local ties, according to Eisenhauer. He said that LHU had a record number of 800 applicants for the program this year for spots in Coudersport, Harrisburg, Clearfield, and Lock Haven.

CCMH doesn't NEED any more PAs. It needs more good physicians PERIOD.
They are having to cut back on other important jobs there but are going to waste time and money on training PAs?
OMG! I can't believe this!

It's an educational program!! Just because the program is taught there doesn't mean that is where they will be employed. Some of the CCMH rediologist were taught at the bradford program, some of the olean ones were. It is an opportunity for this area to get the educational programs it needs.
