Our Scranton community is getting a health care present for the holidays.
Delta Medix Joins Lehigh Valley Health Network
New era for health care in northeast Pennsylvania begins Dec. 28
A health care partner that’s second to none
“Bringing Delta Medix into LVPG gives residents of this region greater access to the leading-edge, comprehensive care they’ve come to expect and deserve from both groups, and the best part is it’s all here in the Scranton area,” says James Demopoulos, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, LVPG. “With the opening of Lehigh Valley Hospital–Dickson City scheduled for spring 2022, there’s a lot to look forward to in health care.”
Delta Medix is the Scranton area’s leading specialty practice with a long track record of success. Each year, it cares for over 42,000 patients and performs over 17,000 surgical procedures. Margo Opsasnick, Chief Executive Officer for Delta Medix, says joining LVPG sets current and future patients up for long-term success. “The medical depth and breadth of LVHN on so many fronts is a game changer,” she says.
What’s in store
Current Delta Medix patients won’t see any substantial changes. They’ll still see the same great doctors and medical staff at the same locations at the Steamtown Mall and at the Center for Comprehensive Cancer Care on Morgan Highway.
The Delta Medix move to LVPG means easier access to:
