My husband and I who are seniors, are still thinking about moving near Scranton, to be near relatives. Our relatives there, tell us that medical care and good qualified doctors is not very available in that area of PA. Can any one comment on this for us?

Scranton has several hospitals including Geisinger Community Medical Center and the Commonwealth Health System (Moses Taylor Hospital and Regional Hospital of Scranton)- all fully staffed. There is even a medical school. Your in-laws are ill-informed.

I find that, overall, the medical care in the Scranton area to be above average, especially for a city our size. Having lived here 20 years, the only time I hear of people going outside of Scranton for care is when it involves cancer, and even then it's patient preference. Regional is known for their cardiology, Moses for pediatric/OB-GYN/general, and Geisinger CMC as an outstanding all-around hospital. Do they still do trauma? Anyhow, I agree with the above poster - Scranton has three fully-staffed hospitals.
