- Extraordinary patient care: We are the only local hospital to receive an “A” in patient safety – five consecutive times – from the Leapfrog Group, an organization that reviews more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals for patient safety and overall performance. We are focused on providing the right care in the right way.
- Complete heart care: Should you require emergency or planned heart care, LVH–Pocono is here for you. We have Monroe County’s only on-site open heart surgery program, the only team designated to treat high-risk heart attacks 24/7, as well as the only hospital-based vascular surgery team. For patients who need temporary heart support, heart surgeons at LVH-Pocono can implant the Impella® device, the world’s smallest heart pump. Our cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiologists are the most experienced in the region, treating twice as many cardiac patients as any other organization in the area. Our services, including ESSA Heart and Vascular Center, are part of Lehigh Valley Heart Institute, providing access to even more resources for your heart care.
- High-level emergency care: Our Level III Trauma Center, accredited by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation, has trauma and general surgeons available 24/7. Our trauma team consists of two fellowship-trained trauma surgeons. We also provide critical care services. Along with general surgery, we have cardiothoracic surgeons on staff and orthopedic surgeons on call, 24 hours a day. We also have anesthesiologists in-house who are prepared to provide rapid care. Our emergency department also earned a spot among the top 5 percent of ERs nationwide for outstanding patient experience.
- Complete cancer care: As part of Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute, the Dale and Frances Hughes Cancer Center at LVH–Pocono was extended membership to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance. For patients, that is recognition of the top-notch care and accessibility of innovative treatments and clinical trials that are available close to home in the Pocono region.
