While the Northeast corner of Pennsylvania included the Endless Mountains and Pocono Mountains, it also boasts two large metropolitan areas. The Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton metropolitan 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 have several professional sports teams, cultural centers, and many outdoor recreation opportunities including ski resorts.
The Geisinger 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 the Regional Hospital of Scranton.
