While the Northeast corner of Pennsylvania
includes the Pocono and Endless Mountains, it also boasts two large
metropolitan areas. The Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton
area is one of the most densely populated areas of the state. The Scranton /
Wilkes-Barre area covers two counties and includes a number of mid-sized towns.
Both metropolitan areas has several professional sports teams, cultural
centers, and many outdoor recreation opportunities including ski resorts.
The Commonwealth Medical College, the
newest medical school in Pennsylvania, is in Scranton. Major health systems in
the area include Lehigh Valley Health System and St. Luke’s University Hospital
in the Allentown-Bethlehem area, Geisinger Wyoming Valley in Wilkes-Barre, and
Regional Hospital of Scranton.
