Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College, Pa., is adding a new 300,000-square-foot patient tower.

The 10-story project will include 168 private patient rooms, outpatient clinics, enhanced dining and food service areas, an outdoor healing garden, data center, and central utility plant. A multilevel parking deck will be located adjacent to the new main entrance.

Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2023, with an expected occupancy date in the last quarter of 2026.

Stantec (Pittsburgh) is providing architectural and engineering services for the project.
