Lehigh Valley Health Network on Friday had a virtual topping off ceremony for its new health campus in Lower Nazareth Township.
The last beam was placed for Lehigh Valley Hospital-Hecktown Oaks, which is located just off or Route 33 along Hecktown Road.
LVHN colleagues provided digital signatures that were included on a large vinyl sticker affixed to the beam.
The campus will include a 106,000-square foot, two-story hospital, a 35,000-square-foot Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute and a 61,000-square-foot medical office building.
The facilities, set to open in the summer of 2021, will have surgery, emergency, orthopedic, cancer, advanced imaging and diagnostic testing services.
The emergency room will care for adults and children, with an area dedicated just to children.
All private patient rooms will have natural light and feature views of the innovative healing garden. State-of-the-art operating suites and services provided by Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence, along with advanced imaging services, also will be located at the new hospital.
The medical office building will have primary and specialty care, including a Joint and Spine Center, care from Lehigh Valley Heart Institute, rehabilitation services, and care provided by Breast Health Services.
Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute will offer cancer care, including infusion services and access to innovative clinical trials through its membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, as well as patient-focused multidisciplinary clinic care that provides oncology patients with personalized recommendations for treatment.
Lehigh Valley Health Network includes eight hospital campuses, three in Allentown, one in Bethlehem, one in East Stroudsburg, one in Hazleton and two in Pottsville.d
