Health Institutes: What They Are and How They Benefit You

With five specialized health institutes, you have access to expertise, treatments and technologies throughout the region

At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we’re setting the record straight on health institutes and what they offer. Each of our five health institutes – Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute, Lehigh Valley Heart and Vascular Institute, Lehigh Valley Fleming Neuroscience Institute, Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence and Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute – are more than just brick and mortar. They serve as hubs of innovation, research and education dedicated to providing everyone in our region with the latest and most effective technologies and treatments.

What are health institutes?

Health institutes are organizations that offer experienced care teams (specialized in certain conditions, medical specialties or parts of the body), the latest treatments, state-of-the-art technologies and access to clinical trials.

Focused on collaboration, continued education and moving the needle forward in medical care, health institutes also attract top-notch clinicians who have vast experience and advanced training from world-class institutions.

How do LVHN’s health institutes benefit me?

As a patient of an LVHN, you can expect:

Multidisciplinary and individualized care

At our health institutes, clinicians from different specialties meet regularly to share their expertise with one another and work together to come up with a care plan specific to each patient.

Advanced treatments

You’ll be offered the most advanced technologies and techniques for treating your condition, and you can rest assured knowing that your clinicians regularly participate in continued medical education.

Access to research and clinical trials

Another important focus of our health institutes is clinical research. Many of your clinicians participate in and offer a wide range of clinical trials, leading the charge in advancing standards of care throughout the country. If you meet the criteria for a clinical trial, you will have the chance to learn more and participate in groundbreaking research opportunities without needing to travel out of the region.

Convenience and care close to home

While Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest serves as the hub for LVHN’s institutes, you’ll have access to institute services, clinicians and expertise at all LVHN hospitals, campuses and practices throughout the region.

No matter who you are and where you live, LVHN’s health institutes are here to provide you with the latest and greatest care.
