Regional Hospital of Scranton is one of the locations in Pennsylvania which will receive assistance from a FEMA strike team.

Pennsylvania will receive strike teams to relieve hospitals in areas hard-hit by COVID-19 after Governor Tom Wolf requested support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. WDIY's James Johnson has more.

On Dec. 29 the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency announced that federal strike teams will be deployed to York and Scranton-based hospitals and emergency services.
