Children’s Health Care in One Location at LVHN’s New Health Center at Palmer Township

Do you live in Northampton County and want access to one convenient location where virtually all of your child’s health care needs from birth through young adult years could be met? In Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) efforts to respond to the population health and lifestyle needs of families and other patients, such a location in Northampton County will be available very soon.

Next summer, the Health Center at Palmer Township will open at 3701 Corriere Road in Palmer Township, off Easton-Nazareth Highway (Route 248), just east of the Northampton Crossings shopping center. The two-story, 57,000-square-foot center will provide Northampton County residents with a variety of services, and will especially concentrate on the needs of growing families with a strong presence from Lehigh Valley Children’s Hospital. The new center will bring about 130 jobs.

The new Health Center at Palmer Township will be a short distance away from the Health Center at Easton, which will open next summer as well at the corner of Northampton Street and Wood Avenue in Easton, Pa.

“These two health centers will be located in two very familiar areas, which will make it very convenient for people to access health care services at their moment of need,” says Brian Nester, DO, MBA, FACOEP, LVHN’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “While these two locations are separated by less than three miles, the centers serve two very unique populations who have asked us to bring care closer to where they live and work.”

Local people are encouraged to sign up for updates on the new Health Center at Palmer Township by visiting LVHN.org/palmertownship.

Once operational, the Health Centers at Palmer Township and Easton will be LVHN’s fourth and fifth health centers in Northampton County, joining the Health Centers at Bangor, Bath and Bethlehem Township. LVHN also has health centers in Lehigh County (Emmaus, Fogelsville, Macungie, the Health & Wellness Center at Muhlenberg and Trexlertown), Berks County (Hamburg, Kutztown and Moselem Springs), Bucks County (Quakertown), Luzerne County (Hazleton and Mountain Top) and Schuylkill County (Frackville).
