Urology

Why Urology of Central Pennsylvania may be the right fit for you:
 
UCPA is a group of 11 Urologists located in south central Pennsylvania.  We serve a large geographic footprint with two main office locations in Harrisburg and Camp Hill, PA.  We have satellite locations in Millersburg and Newport, PA, as well as the Fulton County Medical Center.  We offer complete and comprehensive adult medical and surgical urologic care.
 
UCPA leaders hold executive positions with local major health care systems including University of Pittsburg Medical Center/Pinnacle (UPMCP) and Geisinger/Holy Spirit health care system.  Collaboration with newly formed Penn State Health System (PHS) is ongoing.  Together these constitute 4 large hospitals all within 15 minutes of our main offices where we provide surgical services, inpatient care, consulting, and on-call coverage.  A fifth hospital is projected to open summer 2021.
 
UCPA offers a balanced lifestyle to you and your family.  Tracts to partnership are available as well as employed physician opportunities allowing flexibility in schedules and productivity.  Compensation for partners is partial productivity model that incorporates receipts / RVU’s / surgery center utilization allowing physicians to tailor the practice to their liking.  Additional benefits include retirement contributions and Health/Dental/Life/Malpractice insurances.
 
Our call schedule is one day per week and every 5th weekend (Friday,Saturday,Sunday).  When on-call you are responsible for only 2 hospitals.  UCPA has negotiated reimbursement for our on-call services. Hospital employed physicians admit through the emergency room at all hospitals and we serve only as consultants.  Direct admit privileges are available as well.
 
UCPA employs 6 full-time urology specific APPs-Advanced Practice Providers (Physician Assistants and Certified Nurse Practitioners).  These physician extenders are utilized in the office and hospital setting weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Office APPs have their own schedules for seeing patients and are available for acute issues, add-ons, appropriate post-operative care.  The hospital-based APPs take care of acute issues, consults, and appropriate inpatient care.
 
UCPA owns a urology specific ambulatory surgery center (ASC).  All appropriate outpatient urological procedures including local and general anesthesia cases can be accommodated.  Our ASC conveniently occupies the first floor of our Harrisburg office and is open weekdays.
 
UCPA full time physicians are eligible to participate in an ancillary physician owned shock wave lithotripsy venture that provides lithotripsy services to UCPA and other nearby patient populations.
 
UCPA enjoys high employee satisfaction.  We have a reputation for excellence in providing urological care in our community.  We participate in 2 local monthly GU Tumor Boards.  We offer quarterly AUA Guideline reviews.
