The Lehigh Valley has a new home health services provider. Blue Mountain Home Health Care Inc. has opened an office at 2200 W. Hamilton St. in Allentown.
Zarar Bajwa, medical director for Blue Mountain, said this is fifth location for the provider. It also has offices in Pottsville, Harrisburg, Chambersburg and Hazelton.
The new office will help the company expand its services in and around Allentown, Whitehall and Bethlehem.
The company’s services include skilled nursing, physical therapy, private-duty nursing and home health aide services. It also offers services for children with special needs.
Bajwa said hiring is ongoing and staffing levels will go up as the office obtains more patients. He said there are currently about 50 employees in the Pottsville office, the company’s headquarters. He expects there will be slightly more locally since Allentown is a bigger city.
For the past 15 years, Bajwa has also owned Pediatric Asthma and Allergy in Pottsville, which is a member of Integrated Medical Group
Mark Magasich of NAI Summit represented Blue Mountain in leasing the office.
