The Frederick Building at Lancaster
General Hospital




Lancaster General Hospital’s new Frederick Building, which began welcoming patients in April 2018, is designed to enhance the patient experience by enabling the hospital to provide all private inpatient rooms.

The Frederick Building occupies the hospital’s northeast corner, near Lime and Frederick streets. The 66-room building will soon allow the hospital to replace existing semi-private rooms. The overall number of beds at LGH will not change.

Single-patient rooms have become the industry standard in new construction of acute-care facilities in the United States. Private rooms reduce the possibilities for infection, facilitate nurses' and health care workers’ ability to do their jobs efficiently, provide adequate spaces for family members to participate in the healing process, and afford a greater measure of privacy for the delivery of bedside treatments and for sensitive discussions with health care personnel. Private-room design also reduces noise levels and traffic in and out of patient rooms and contributes to a reduction in patient stress levels, which in turn results in faster healing time.

The pediatric floor will open in summer 2019.
