Driving a half-hour for infusion treatments or imaging tests can be a hardship for people with cancer and their families. Soon, many residents of Carbon County and the surrounding communities need go no farther than the new Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Carbon.
The hospital is situated along Route 443, just outside Lehighton. It will boast a location of Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute, the only cancer center in the region that is part of the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance (MSK Cancer Alliance). For people in the area, the cancer program at LVH–Carbon will offer convenient access to an array of cancer services and an experienced hematology oncology team.
