A ribbon cutting ceremony in Lewisburg on Monday marked the transition of the Miller Center to a joint venture between Evangelical Community Hospital and Geisinger, and welcoming the YMCA as an operational partner.

Kendra Aucker, President and CEO of Evangelical Community Hospital, thanked everyone who came together over the last three months to make the collaboration possible. The ribbon was then cut to applause from business leaders in attendance and as members checked in for their daily dose of wellness and fitness activities.

The YMCA Express in Lewisburg closed on Sunday, December 15, and Monday, December 16 marked the first day the combined members of the YMCA and the Miller Center could take advantage of the new opportunities at the newly-established Lewisburg YMCA at the Miller Center.
