DANVILLE – One of PA’s largest health systems has run out of beds because of the latest COVID-19 surge, with emergency room delays of 10 to 20 hours. Geisinger is running at 110% capacity across its nine hospitals in central and northeastern Pennsylvania — overrun with largely unvaccinated COVID-19 patients who represent a quarter to well over half of all admissions. That’s according to Dr. Jaewon Ryu, Geisinger’s President and CEO. He said he expects the situation to deteriorate further in coming weeks, citing sharply rising case and test positivity numbers.
