LVHN Claims 2 Honors in 2017 Morning Call Readers’ Choice Awards

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) has won two prestigious health care honors in the 2017 Morning Call Readers’ Choice Awards, released by the newspaper on Sunday.

LVHN won Best Hospital/Health Network and LVPG Family Medicine won Best Family Doctor. The Morning Call invited readers to take part in an online survey to vote in several categories, including health care.

Such honors are a tribute to LVHN’s mission to heal, comfort and care for our community. Accessing quality care at LVHN is now easier than ever before. You can do so by:

  • Calling one number to access everything our health network has to offer: 888-402-LVHN
  • Scheduling an appointment on our website, LVHN.org, or on our patient portal, MyLVHN
  • Walking into an ExpressCARE without an appointment to get care for a common illness or minor injury
  • Addressing a minor medical concern via a video visit with a provider from the comfort of your living room couch.

And on our website, you can choose the best doctor for you by reviewing physician star ratings submitted by real patients.

LVHN has set the standard for care and innovation in the region. And recently we took that standard to the next level with the development of three institutes: the LVHN Heart Institute, the LVHN Cancer Institute and the LVHN Institute for Special Surgery.

The word “institute” describes a health care organization where high-caliber clinicians work together to conduct patient care, research and education, and to better predict, prevent and combat disease. That means when you receive care at an LVHN institute, you’ll have a team of experts working together to ensure you receive leading-edge care.

Lehigh Valley Hospital has been ranked among the nation’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report for 22 consecutive years. Last month, LVHN was honored as one of 12 academic medical centers nationally to receive the Bernard A. Birnbaum, MD, Quality Leadership Award at the Vizient Clinical Connections Summit in Denver. The award is issued for demonstrating leadership, collaboration, adaptability and advanced analytics in improving performance across the care continuum.

LVHN also won Morning Call Reader’s Choice awards for Best Hospital/Health Network in 2015 and tied in the 2014 voting. LVHN won Best Family Doctor in 2015 and 2016.
