Schuylkill Campus Integration Update
Lehigh Valley Health Network’s campus integration plan in Schuylkill County consolidating acute, medical/surgical services to the East Campus is continuing. That consolidation is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
Part of this construction is enhancement of the Diagnostic Imaging/Radiology Department at the East Norwegian Street hospital. That department expansion includes the additions of nuclear medicine, digital mammography, a new interventional radiology suite and a new patient registration/reception area. Additional, but more minor renovations are taking place on the hospital’s fourth floor.
The current plan keeps Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill Family Birth and Newborn Center, Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Maternity Unit in Schuylkill County, on the South Campus as well as Adult and Adolescent Behavioral Health Units. A decision about the location of maternity services is still being evaluated.
An Express/Urgent Center is being planned for the South Jackson Street facility as well.
