Troy, PA (WBNG Binghamton) Hospitals aren't always known for holding celebrations, but workers held one Friday for the completion of one project.

Members of the community joined workers from the Guthrie Healthcare System Friday for a ribbon cutting and open house of the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital.

Workers broke ground on the $30-million-dollar project back in June of 2012.

Those in attendance toured the facility, learned more about the services offered and met the staff.

"The hospital in downtown has been there for more than 50 years.
It was built at a time when technology wasn't what it is today. This hospital is built with the size and infrastructure to meet modern medical needs," said Joseph Scopeletti, the CEO of Guthrie Health.

Community members were able to reminisce over photos of the original hospital.

Kids were also able to enjoy activities provided by the Guthrie Troy clinic.

The facility is located at 275 Guthrie Drive.
