Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley along with state Senator Robert M. “Tommy” Tomlinson, State Representatives Frank Farry and Scott Petri and other dignitaries present a $3 million check for a state capital grant to support the Surgical Services Expansion at St. Mary Medical Center, Langhorne, as they open four new state-of-the-art operating rooms.

St. Mary Medical Center, a Catholic hospital in Langhorne, opened the doors April 5 to its recent expansion featuring four new operating rooms to support its growing number of patients in orthopedics, neurosurgery and robotic-assisted surgery, plus all general surgeries.

The state-of-the-art rooms include a sophisticated software-integration system designed to enhance a surgeon’s ability to perform minimally invasive procedures that ultimately result in faster recovery times and lower complication rates.

The $8.4 million expansion included a $3 million state grant awarded to St. Mary through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). St. Mary was the only organization in Bucks County to receive the grant last year.

State legislators from the area and the Corbett administration helped secure the grant.

At the opening of the facility April 5, officials present included (below, from left) state Rep. Scott Petri; state Sen. Robert M. “Tommy” Tomlinson; Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley; Greg Wozniak, president and CEO of St. Mary Medical Center; state Rep. Frank Farry; and state Rep. Gene DiGirolamo.
