We’re Growing… and Expecting too!
As our community moves and grows, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is stretching its footprint to serve families and individuals where they live. Here are updates on our newest locations, and those we will open in 2017.
Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill – Now Part of LVHN
In September 2016, Schuylkill Health System (SHS) officially merged with Lehigh Valley Health Network. Two hospitals in Pottsville that were formerly part of SHS are now known as Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill E. Norwegian Street and Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill S. Jackson Street. In November, a newly renovated emergency department at the E. Norwegian Street facility was opened to the public. It features 21 individual treatment bays, a specially designed, private behavioral health area and a four-bed fast-track unit.
Madison Farms, Bethlehem Township – Opening Spring 2017
A new LVHN facility is under construction at the Madison Farms development in Bethlehem Township. The building will offer specialty care services, including maternal fetal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics.
Health Center at Easton – Opening Summer 2017
Just a few miles from the Health Center at Palmer, building crews are transforming property that once housed the former Schaible’s/Bimbo Bakeries into the new Health Center at Easton. Services at the Health Center at Easton will include:
- Primary care for the whole family
- Testing and treatment services
- ExpressCARE (walk-in care for minor injuries and common illnesses)
- Access to Health Network Laboratories
Health Center at Palmer Township – Opening Summer 2017
The Health Center at Palmer Township will open at 3701 Corriere Road in Palmer Township, off Easton-Nazareth Highway (Route 248), just east of the Northampton Crossings shopping center. The two-story, 57,000-square-foot center will provide Northampton County residents with a variety of services, and will especially concentrate on the needs of growing families with a strong presence from Lehigh Valley Children’s Hospital.
Lehigh Valley Hospital–Muhlenberg Family Health Pavilion – Opening Summer 2017
We’re bursting with pride as the Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Muhlenberg Family Health Pavilion soars. The new four-story pavilion will house the Family Birth and Newborn Center offering childbirth services for the first time at LVH–Muhlenberg. Women and their partners can enjoy time with their newborn in one of 20 private rooms. It also will offer 10 Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) rooms, eight labor, delivery and recovery rooms, and two operating rooms. The Family Health Pavilion will house a 28-bed inpatient rehabilitation center on the first floor.
