Psychiatric emergency evaluation services (PES)

The PES telehealth program uses high-definition videoconferencing to conduct timely psychiatric evaluations with patients admitted to Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH) emergency departments (EDs) at LVH–Cedar Crest, LVH–17th Street and LVH–Muhlenberg. Pediatric patients also may be evaluated using the PES system. Outside of the ED, the PES staff uses the telehealth network for case conferences between LVHN’s three Lehigh Valley-based hospitals.
