Two new Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) Hospital campuses will open this spring in Lehighton in Carbon County and Dickson City in Lackawanna county, bringing LVHN’s renowned expertise and high-quality, compassionate care closer to home for residents living in these two communities.
Both campuses have many features in common that will benefit patients and health care professionals alike. A full-service acute medical and surgical hospital connected to a health center at each site will provide streamlined inpatient and outpatient services at one convenient location.
The hospitals include operating rooms, emergency rooms (ERs) and helipads, allowing critical patients to be transported quickly to other hospitals as required. In addition, each hospital will be equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging technologies and provide the latest technologies in digital health, including secure virtual care and electronic medical records. Beyond these similarities, each hospital has a different area of focus that best addresses the needs of its respective communities.
