The old shop Toys R Us on Harrisburg Pike will become a Pennsylvania Health System hospital facility.

The property will open in winter 2021 as a 47,000 square foot outpatient facility in Lancaster County. The state health system has a hospital under construction in the area and has opened another in East Hempfield, as reported Fox 43.

Penn State Health will replace the building’s facade and complete 25,000 square feet of the interior by March 2022. The remainder of the interior will be the second phase of the project but when it will be completed has not yet been determined.

The center will make it possible to offer the most accessible healthcare services for people living in the community, said Steve Massini, CEO of Penn State Health, during a public statement.

The new outpatient center will be located on the site of the store Toys R Us which closed in June 2018 after the parent company filed for bankruptcy liquidating its 375 branches. The store located at 1430 Harrisburg Pike opened its doors for 29 years.

The Pennsylvania Health System purchased the property in May 2019 for $ 4.75 million.
