Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) in Pennsylvania broke ground on a new hospital in Lower Macungie Township to help meet increasing demand for accessible, convenient emergency room and inpatient care. 

Lehigh Valley Hospital –Macungie is expected to open by the end of 2023. A medical office building, the Health Center at Macungie, also will be part of the project. 

The new hospital is a type of facility informally known as a neighborhood hospital, with a full-service emergency room and a limited number of inpatient beds. The 20,000-square-foot footprint is smaller than other LVHN hospitals in the region and will be a licensed and accredited acute care hospital, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and housed in a state-of-the-art facility. Patients requiring surgery or higher levels of care will be stabilized and transferred to other, larger LVHN hospitals as needed. 

The 30,000-square-foot Health Center at Macungie will house a variety of medical services, including HNL Lab Medicine, Lehigh Valley Physician Group family medicine, orthopedics, cardiology and pediatrics practices. The health center also will offer outpatient adult rehabilitation and cardiac and vascular diagnostic testing.
