MEDIA ALERT: Groundbreaking Planned for LVH-Muhlenberg Facility that Will Bring Baby Deliveries to the Bethlehem Hospital for the First Time Ever

Project Also Will Include Center for Inpatient Rehabilitation

WHAT: Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) leaders and local officials will don blue hard hats and pink shovels as they officially break ground on the four-story Specialty Care Pavilion that will bring numerous “new arrivals” – about 2,000 births a year – to LVH–Muhlenberg for the first time in the Bethlehem hospital’s 54-year history.  The celebration also will feature Lehigh Valley-area children and their families with the children conducting their own “groundbreaking,” using miniature shovels in a tiny sandbox.

The $93.6 million project, when completed, also will feature the Center for Inpatient Rehabilitation for short-term, intensive, hospital-based therapy following a serious illness, injury or procedure.

WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 24, 1 p.m.

WHERE: LVH – Muhlenberg south entrance (off Westgate Drive).

BACKGROUND: In response to high demand for health care throughout the region and requests from community members to provide obstetrics and newborn services in the Bethlehem area, LVHN announced plans in May to build a new four-story pavilion on the LVH–Muhlenberg campus in Bethlehem.

LVHN president and chief executive officer Brian Nester, DO, MBA, FACOEP, said by expanding high-quality obstetrics care to LVH–Muhlenberg, LVHN is filling a need and giving people from Northampton County and the surrounding area an option to have their babies closer to home. Additionally, the network is expanding rehabilitation services in response to a need for inpatient-specific rehabilitation on the LVH-Muhlenberg campus.
