We at Penn Highlands Brookville (PHB) are very proud of our record in both cost effectiveness and innovation. As our 34 plus bed hospital evolves to meet today's ever- changing health care needs, the main focus remains on the patient and PHB's role in the community. The hospital has experienced enormous changes since its founding in 1919. Today, technological changes in health care are occurring at an even faster rate. While the hospital has kept pace with these rapid changes, its strength lies in the personalized healthcare given by the PHB family, which includes the physicians, employees, and board of directors.
To fulfill this mission and vision, we focus on bringing together talented healthcare professionals who believe that the best way to treat patients is to offer individualized medical care in an environment that is friendly, personalized, and close to home. In order to serve our patients in this manner, we are actively recruiting individuals who want to work in this type of environment.
