Dr. David Greenwald, a member of Wyoming Valley Health Care System's board of directors, also looks forward to projects that would be completed at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital after the sale, including the planned expanded emergency room and the creation of single occupancy rooms.

"The hope for them in purchasing Wilkes-Barre General Hospital is that it will become their major referral hospital," he said. "Wilkes-Barre General Hospital desperately needs a new emergency room and needs recruitment for physicians. General Hospital just needs the finances to keep up with technology and to compete with Geisinger Health System."
Just as Community Health Systems turned around other hospitals, Greenwald believes the hospital chain will help Wyoming Valley Health Care System with its financial situation.

Dr. David Greenwald was born at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and has spent the past 39 years working there. Until a year ago he believed that when he died the hospital would still be a community based, non-profit facility. Now he hopes he's wrong.

...
Greenwald has done the same.
The oncologist said that after speaking to a colleague at another hospital that was purchased by CHS, discussing the company's philosophy of care and seeing the track record of change and improvements made after previous purchases, his mindset has changed.
"Maybe I've been wrong all these years. Maybe health care deserves a different approach," said Greenwald, who also serves on the WVHCS board of directors.
He said that while there should be wariness about the loss of the non-profit label the community hospital has had for over 130 years, there also should be a sense of relief that the hospital many in the Valley have come to know will continue to exist and perhaps improve.

Greenwald said WVHCS has always had potential but financing it was a different story.
