Embrace Innovation in Your Career at Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Neighborhood Hospitals


Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is revolutionizing health care accessibility through its groundbreaking neighborhood hospital model, setting the stage for a workplace experience unlike any other in health care. As LVHN prepares to open Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Macungie, health care professionals have an exciting opportunity to join a team that will provide care in an innovative facility.

“Patients will receive the same high-quality, compassionate care and exceptional patient experience that have made LVHN the gold standard in the region.” - David Burmeister, DO

LVH–Macungie isn’t your conventional hospital. Its compact state-of-the-art design, encompassing 22,000 square feet, represents a new wave in health care delivery. With a limited number of inpatient beds, this community-oriented hospital ensures quality care remains the cornerstone. It will be staffed by highly qualified clinicians and emergency-trained nurses.

Community-based care

Located along Route 100 in Lower Macungie Township near Allentown, LVH–Macungie gives people convenient access to quality care. This location allows health professionals to become a part of the community, developing relationships and partnerships with the people they care for.

LVH-Macungie's smaller size doesn't compromise the quality of care provided.

“Patients will receive the same high-quality, compassionate care and exceptional patient experience that have made LVHN the gold standard in the region,” says David Burmeister, DO, Chair of the Department of Emergency and Hospital Medicine at LVHN.

The hospital’s inpatient beds cater to patients needing overnight stays, additional care or testing. For patients requiring more specialized treatment or surgical procedures, the hospital ensures seamless transitions, stabilizing patients before transferring them to larger LVHN facilities equipped with enhanced care capabilities.

Forward-thinking advantages for all

LVH–Macungie delivers a host of benefits. Patients experience reduced emergency department wait times, quicker admissions and shorter lengths of stay, all while receiving top-notch care. For health care professionals, this unique environment fosters a culture of innovation and efficiency.

LVH-Macungie provides lab, imaging and pharmacy services. Outpatient imaging services such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT scans and MRI also are provided on campus. 

Doors open in 2024
