Pediatric Rehabilitation Now Available at Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Health Center at West End

Children are built differently than adults and require a different level of care. That’s why Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) has personalized rehabilitation care to fit children’s specific developmental needs or challenges if they are recovering from an injury, illness or surgery. And now, pediatric rehabilitation is closer to home with the opening of a new location at LVHN’s Health Center at West End.

LVH Pediatric Rehabilitation Services–West End will be open five days a week and offer physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and language pathology to children of all ages.

“Our goal at LVHN is to provide exceptional care close to home and by opening this new pediatric rehabilitation location in the Pocono region, we are doing just that. We are looking forward to partnering with our community through this new service,” says Shelley Spence, MS, OTR/L, Manager, LVHN Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation.

LVH Pediatric Rehabilitation Services–West End is located in the Health Center at West End at 120 Burrus Blvd., Suite 130, Brodheadsville, PA 18322-7812. The facility is open weekdays by appointment and can accommodate early morning and evening appointments for our patients' convenience.
