Gov. Wolf Thanks Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Staff During Visit

As the commonwealth continues its measured, phased reopening and COVID-19 case counts continue to decline, Governor Tom Wolf visited Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to thank staff and learn more about how the facility is handling the pandemic and preparing for a possible resurgence in the fall.

"For almost four months, the staff here has done an amazing job working day and night to care for patients," Gov. Wolf said, addressing staff in attendance. "Taking care of patients with a new virus that we didn't know much about was a challenge, and you've had to balance their health and wellness with keeping the other patients at that medical center safe. That took a team effort."

The Wolf Administration approached the COVID-19 pandemic with a plan, by being prepared and by issuing both stay-at-home and reopening orders using a measured, phased approach that combined science with input from health experts. The Department of Health opened its Operations Center at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency in January, well before the first cases arrived in Pennsylvania. That preparedness was key to ensuring the state's hospitals, including the medical center, were not overwhelmed.
