For the second year running, the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Center team at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital has received the Outstanding Care Center Partnership Award. Bestowed by the CF Foundation Delaware Valley Chapter, the award recognizes the strong collaborative relationship between the CF Center’s team and the foundation’s local chapter.
On a national level, the CF Foundation plays a central role in advancing high-quality, evidence-based care. The CF Center at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital is the only site in the region – and one of about 130 nationwide – accredited as a core center by the CF Foundation. It provides state-of-the-art care for young people with CF, from infancy through adolescence.
“We develop an individualized treatment plan for every patient based on the guidelines of the CF Foundation, which are backed by high-quality research. The care that a child with CF receives at our center is equivalent to what they would get at a world-renowned hospital,” says Jennifer Logan, MD, a pediatric pulmonologist who became the CF Center director in July.
