St. Luke's University Health Network is getting a little bigger.

Officials took the wraps off the expanded Acute Rehabilitation Center at St. Luke's Hospital in the Bethlehem area on Wednesday.

The center is for patients who have experienced a major illness or injury.

Specially trained therapists and nurses are on hand to help them re-learn or develop the skills they need to live independently.

The facility is open to patients from St. Luke's and from other facilities.
