Learn about the many medical-treatment options available to residents and visitors to the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, from acute-care hospitals to specialty-care centers and clinics.
The Lehigh Valley is home to highly-ranked health-care providers, from acute-care hospitals to specialty-care surgery centers and clinics, many of which are expanding and innovating to keep pace with a rapidly growing patient population.
At the forefront is Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), a specialty-care leader that operates four acute-care hospitals, a multi-location children’s hospital and several community health centers and clinics throughout the region.
LVHN’s recent advancements include expanded rehabilitation services, a health and fitness destination center in downtown Allentown, a burgeoning clinical-trials program and a bevy of high-tech tools and training opportunities for physicians.
Another top-tier provider is St. Luke’s University Health Network, a nonprofit that welcomes patients to six hospitals and more than 200 health sites across the region, along with operating schools of medicine and nursing.
“Today, St. Luke’s is much more than a provider of health care; we are a major educator of our future doctors, nurses and allied-health professionals,” said Robert Martin, senior vice president at St. Luke’s, whose Temple/St. Luke’s School of Medicine graduated its first class in 2015. “We cannot overestimate the importance of attracting new physicians and advanced practitioners to our community to provide the care our growing and aging population is going to need.”
