LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. - The Lehigh Valley Health Network's board of trustees approved and reaffirmed the plans for the new Lehigh Valley Hospital - Pocono West campus Tuesday.
LVHN merged with the former Pocono Health system last January and since then wanted to build a new hospital campus along Route 715 in Tannersville.
With this approval of the timeline and services of the new campus, construction can finally begin in warmer months. The groundbreaking is planned for spring 2018, with an expected opening date of summer 2020.
Brain Nester, LVHN's president and chief executive officer, said the Lehigh Valley Hospital - Pocono West hospital campus will give people in Monroe County's western region access to the 'quality health care services they need most.'
The new campus will include an emergency room, an inpatient medical-surgical unit, advanced imaging and much more.
