Now Available – LVHN COVID-19 Data

Throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, a common request from the community is for information. During this public health crisis, patient care teams, technology resources and clinical leadership at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) were all learning in real-time about COVID-19 and its impact on our region and hospitals. We are now sharing some specific data with you to keep you informed and celebrate milestones in our fight against COVID-19.

At LVHN.org/COVID19report, you have access to information specific to our health network, which encompasses Lehigh, Northampton, Luzerne, Monroe, Schuylkill, Berks, Montgomery, Carbon, Bucks, Pike and Warren counties. You can learn about:

  • Total positive test results for LVHN, including how many people were tested overall at our LVHN Assess and Test locations and hospitals

  • Number of tests completed by LVHN, and positive results by county

  • The daily census and trend of hospitalized COVID-19 patients at LVHN hospitals

  • Number of pre-screenings completed by LVHN Video Visit, E-Visit and My LVHN Nurse Information line.

As of April 20, LVHN completed more than 16,700 pre-screening assessments using virtual technologies. On LVHN.org/COVID19report, you can see the number of types of pre-screenings done by video visit, E-Visit and telephone hotline.

Every Monday, we will update this information on LVHN.org/COVID19report, so you can remain informed about COVID-19 in our hospitals and regions.
