(Danville) -- Geisinger Health System, a sprawling hospital system that covers much of rural Pennsylvania, is planning to hire 1,500 more medical professionals and other workers. 

The hiring effort would increase Geisinger's 30,000-strong staff by five percent. 

Julene Campion, the network's vice present of talent management, says Geisinger needs a growing team to care for the three million patients it treats every year. 

The new hires, to be recruited nationally, will include doctors, nurses and other care professionals, as well as support staff including administrative, clerical, dietary, marketing, pharmacy, researching, laboratory and IT workers. 

The network now has 12 hospitals in 45 Pennsylvania counties and southern New Jersey, up from two hospitals that served 30 Pennsylvania counties 10 years ago.

Among the facilities it operates are Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, Geisinger-Bloomsburg Hospital, Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital,  and Geisinger-Shamokin Area Hospital.
