Scranton Primary Health Care Center Launches New Website

It is now easier for area consumers seeking medical services to find professionals and available
services through a new website for The Clinics at Scranton Primary Health Care Center, where
no one is denied services due to an inability to pay.

The new website, launched at the beginning of the year, provides consumers with key
information about the services, hours, health insurance, directions, and lists registration forms
in addition to the Clinics’ policies. The site provides short biographies for the Clinics’ providers
in internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, perinatal, family medicine, general dentistry,
behavioral health, and infectious diseases.

The new site also lists employment opportunities and the current availabilities at the Clinics.
Applicants can apply for open positions directly on the site through an interactive application
form. The job openings are updated regularly so potential applicants can determine if new
opportunities match their skills and experiences.

“The launch of the new employment section of the website coincides with the kickoff of a
multimedia marketing campaign to attract additional Clinics staff members that features a
‘Follow Your Heart. Find Your Career.’ campaign theme,” relayed Joseph Hollander, Chief
Executive Officer of SPHCC. The new recruitment theme will also be featured in future job fair
events to be held by the health care center.

Scranton Primary Health Care Center is a Federally Qualified Health Care Center, located at 959
Wyoming Avenue, Scranton. The new website can be accessed at

Outreach Center for Community Resources 2021 Mighty Oak Awards – Gerrity’s Supermarkets and the Scranton Primary Health Care Center

Outreach invites the community to attend the 2021 Mighty Oak Awards on October 6, 2021, as we honor service-minded pillars that have provided essential services to the region since the beginning of the pandemic. The Mighty Oak Awards will be honoring Gerrity’s Supermarkets and Scranton Primary Health Care Center. These organizations support the community and provide vital services.

Scranton Primary Health Care Center opened its doors in 1978 as a Federally Qualified Health Center to provide care to the uninsured and under-insured. Scranton Primary provides care to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. Scranton Primary continues to serve that mission by offering pediatrics, family & internal medicine, women’s health & gynecology, perinatal care, infectious disease care, behavioral health and general dentistry, as well as helping people navigate the insurance marketplace. Scranton Primary has been offering COVID-19 rapid testing and vaccinations as soon as they became available. Last year, Scranton Primary treated almost 12,000 patients, resulting in nearly 42,000 visits to their three offices.

Over a century ago, in 1895, William Gerrity founded a small meat shop named Gerrity’s Market at 345 Railroad Avenue in Scranton. Though the business has been in the Fasula family for over 40 years, the 126-year-old Gerrity name has remained. From the flagship store in West Scranton, which opened in 1980, to the eight additional locations, Gerrity’s Supermarket stands today as one of the oldest and most well-known local businesses. Today, Gerrity’s is run by Joyce “Mom” Fasula and her son Joe Fasula. The Fasula family attributes their success to the vision of their father, Neal Fasula, and Joseph Gerrity (son of William) and his family. Most of all, however, they credit the hard work and dedication of their 1,100 team members. They are very grateful for the loyalty and support of their customers in Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties. Gerrity’s continues to serve their customers and protect the health of all those who enter their stores, maintaining operations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Outreach invites the community to attend the Mighty Oak Awards and honor these community pillars in a beautiful outdoor venue at the Glenmaura National Golf Club starting at 5:30 pm. The Mighty Oak Award is the signature event for Outreach and highlights the agency’s acclaimed work with residents of Lackawanna County and the surrounding counties in our region. Outreach is grateful to M&T Bank, Gerrity’s Supermarkets, and TOPP Business Solutions for their sponsorship of the Mighty Oak Awards.
