Lehigh Valley Health Network officially opened Lehigh Valley Hospital-Dickson City in Lackawanna County with a ribbon cutting Tuesday.
The campus on Main Street includes a 100,000-square-foot state-of-the-art hospital and a previously opened Health Center.
The hospital has seven operating rooms and two procedure rooms, a 19-bay emergency room (ER), a helipad and 24 private inpatient rooms, the hospital said.
“This campus will be an indispensable part of the community, healing its residents and helping them live their best lives,” said Dr. Michael Rossi, LVHN executive vice president and chief clinical officer. “Great health care is part of what makes a community special.”
The new hospital has created more than 250 new jobs and will be led by President Kim Jordan. Jordan has more than three decades of nursing experience.
“My nursing background has always been my North Star because I know first-hand the value of compassionate care,” Jordan said. “I know the importance of always putting the patient first, of fulfilling the trust they have in their caregivers. It is the foundation of what we do.”
