Penn State Health


Penn State Health is a multi-hospital health system serving patients and communities across central Pennsylvania. The system includes Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center in Reading, Pa., Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Penn State Children’s Hospital, Penn State Cancer Institute, and Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital (jointly owned with Select Medical), based in Hershey, Pa., as well as more than 1,300 physicians and direct care providers at 78 medical office locations. The system also has jointly owned health care providers, including Hershey Outpatient Surgery Center, Hershey Endoscopy Center, Horizon Home Healthcare and the Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute. Penn State Health shares an integrated strategic plan and operations with Penn State College of Medicine, the University’s medical school. The Department of Neurology is one of the premier academic departments of neurology in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the only one in central Pennsylvania, and is known for its world-class patient care, education and research. The department is in an exciting phase of growth under the leadership of Krish Sathian, MBBS, PhD, Chair of Neurology, as clinical services expand to meet the needs of our patients, the residency program increases in size, and research activity and collaborations proliferate. We provide state-of-the-art care for patients across a wide range of neurologic disorders, and our providers are actively engaged in clinical research while collaborating with basic scientists at Hershey and University Park. The outstanding team of academic neurologists educates medical students at various stages of their undergraduate medical studies. We also train graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and clinical fellows – all with the goal of developing the next generation of leaders in the field of neurology. The department is also proud of our outreach activities to neurologists and non-neurology health care providers, as well as the community at large.
