Lehigh Valley Hospital–Carbon Virtual Groundbreaking

This message is from Terry Purcell, President, Lehigh Valley Hospital–Carbon.

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is marking the start of construction of Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Carbon in the safest way possible, virtually. An event was held to formally mark our commitment to building the first LVHN hospital in Carbon County, LVH–Carbon, which is slated to open spring 2022. Watch the virtual groundbreaking here.

Furthering our commitment to Carbon County 

LVHN has been serving the Carbon County community for decades, and we look forward to providing a higher level of care and convenient access to care through LVH–Carbon. The new hospital will cover 100-thousand-square-feet and be located along Route 443 in Mahoning Township, just outside of Lehighton. 

Services and facilities

LVH–Carbon will feature a 12-bay emergency department, 18 inpatient beds, two operating rooms, two procedure rooms and four observation rooms with plans to expand in the future. The hospital will also have a helipad to transfer critical patients as needed. 

LVHN already provides several services in Carbon County including family medicine, obstetrics, orthopedics and world-class cancer care made possible through LVHN’s membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance. Thanks to LVH–Carbon, we will expand our offerings to include inpatient care, outpatient surgery, rehabilitation, diagnostic cardiology and radiology including MRI, CT and ultrasound. We will also have an infusion center and around-the-clock care at our emergency department. 

Sincere thanks

Thank you to everyone who has worked to make this new hospital a reality. We are #LVHNProud to call you “colleagues.”
