Geisinger St. Luke’s healthcare system is building a new acute-care hospital in Carbon County, Pennsylvania. The four-story, 155,000-square-foot hospital will house 80 private rooms, as well as a 17-bed emergency room, 24-hour critical care with 12 ICU beds, state-of-the-art operating rooms, and advanced technologies. The campus will also provide medical, diagnostic, critical care, emergency, comprehensive outpatient and surgical services.
This $100 million facility is the first hospital construction project for the region in more than 60 years. The Carbon Campus will allow patients easier access to specialists, advanced technology and nationally recognized healthcare.
Meanwhile, the hospital’s Lehighton campus will undergo renovation and expand its behavioral health services. Along with the new hospital, a planned diabetes wellness center, sleep center and Care Now walk-in centers will be offered at the Lehighton location to round out care options in the Carbon region.
