When It Matters Most: A Guide to Injury Prevention
Guide to Injury Prevention

Lehigh Valley Health Network is passionate about injury prevention and your child's safety. The following articles first published in When It Matters Most: A Guide to Injury Prevention. We hope the information provides you with easy tips to keep your child out of harm’s way. However, if an accident happens, you may be able to choose where your family receives care. That’s why it’s important to educate yourself, make your choice now and let your loved ones know.

At Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest’s Level I Mattioli Trauma Center, we provide the region’s highest level of trauma care for children. Plus, our Walter J. and June H. Okunski Burn Recovery Center is Pennsylvania’s largest and is verified to treat children and adults. We are also home to the region's only Children’s ER, staffed with pediatric specialists. Together, these services make us uniquely qualified to care for you or your child’s injury – big or small.

If you’re interested in learning about our community outreach and education programs offered in Healthy You magazine or by our trauma team, please call 888-402-LVHN or visit
