“We are excited to partner with Lehigh Valley Health Network on the construction of this new facility that will incorporate the latest innovative evidence-based care elements for maximum patient safety and clinical outcomes. LVHN is an outstanding provider of critically needed services in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding region. Our missions are aligned, and we share a commitment to expand access to compassionate care and treatment for all populations in the region.”

“The scarcity of mental health resources is a major national issue that is hitting us hard, right here in the Lehigh Valley. The need for a variety of behavioral health programs and services is far outpacing regional capacity, and those needs are only growing. This new facility across the street will nearly triple the number of inpatient beds available to the Lehigh Valley. With the announcement of this new partnership, LVHN is taking a positive step forward on our journey to expand access to care for those suffering with mental and behavioral health issues.”

Brian A. Nester, DO, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer, Lehigh Valley Health Network
