Developer announces plans for geriatric hospital

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A Lehigh Valley developer wants to build a hospital for the elderly in Allentown.

Abe Atiyeh said Thursday that he wants to put a geriatric hospital in the former Western Electric Building, next to Coca-Cola Park.

The 400-bed hospital would be for emergency care, rehabilitation and Alzheimer's treatment, Atiyeh said.

The city's planning and zoning hearing boards will have to approve the plans before he can move forward, Atiyeh said.
