Awards and Recognition
You and your family deserve the high-quality care, and we’re passionate about delivering it to you. We’re driven to do everything we can, every day, to ensure the care you need is available at Lehigh Valley Health Network. While we’re focusing on you, people from throughout the nation are focusing on us. We’ve received awards from national organizations recognizing us as one of the nation’s premier health networks.
Many of the awards recognize us for providing superior care. For example, U.S News & World Report consistently ranks us in several areas. The expertise of our staff also is recognized. The American Nurses Credentialing Center names us a Magnet® Hospital, the highest honor for nursing excellence. Plus, the Leapfrog Group gives us an “A” for patient safety.
We are humbled by such recognition and also are proud of our affiliations and accreditation. Learn more:
