By HFT Staff


Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) and Universal Health Services (UHS) will construct a new 144-bed behavioral health hospital.  Groundbreaking for the new 97,000-square-foot facility will be held in spring 2024 with expected opening in fall 2025. 

LVHN selected UHS as its partner because of its long-standing commitment to patient- and family-centered care, strong clinical outcomes and proven track record of partnering with community-based entities. 

The new facility will be operated by the joint venture and will create more than 300 full-time jobs including nurses, clinicians, therapists, technicians and administrative staff.
