Expressly for You

ExpressCARE can help during cough and cold season (and beyond)

Hacking cough. Sneezing. Runny nose. Congestion. When cold or flu symptoms come on strong and it’s after hours or on the weekend, ExpressCARE is here for you and the whole family – without an appointment, 365 days a year. To make it even more convenient, most sites offer onsite X-ray services and an online estimated wait time (find wait times at LVHN.org/expresscare), so you can select a location with a shorter wait.

Treatment WHEN YOU NEED IT

ExpressCARE is staffed by certified registered nurse practitioners and certified physician assistants. These advanced practice clinicians specialize in common illnesses and injuries, such as:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Ear pain
  • Flu symptoms
  • Colds or bronchitis
  • Eye swelling and irritation
  • Fever Headache
  • Allergies
  • Back pain
  • Minor cuts
  • Nausea
  • Rashes
  • Sinus congestion
  • Sprains
  • Strains

You also can visit an ExpressCARE location to get a flu shot – it’s still peak flu season.

Staying in the know

ExpressCARE is part of Lehigh Valley Health Network. So when your ExpressCARE visit is complete, your LVHN electronic medical record is updated. You can see your ExpressCARE visit summary on your own MyLVHN account, and your LVPG primary care physician will see a record of your ExpressCARE visit and know about any treatment you received or if you need follow-up care.
