St. Luke’s Carbon Campus hospital opened Saturday, Nov. 20.
The three-story, 80-patient-room, 160,000-square-feet facility is the largest of its kind in the history of Carbon County and the first new hospital built in the county in 65 years.
“This complex underscores St. Luke’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of this community,” says John Nespoli, president of St. Luke’s Lehighton and Carbon campuses. “At St. Luke’s, we believe in providing quality services locally that keep people physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy and help take care of them close to home when they are ill or injured, to ultimately enhance the health status of our neighbors.”
Construction will start in spring on a three-story, 50,000-square-foot medical office building connected to the hospital. Cancer, cardiac, orthopedics care, pain management and physical therapy services and physicians’ offices will occupy this facility, along with a full fitness center and more. This facility will be opened in early 2023.
St. Luke’s formally dedicated its Carbon Campus hospital on Oct. 30.
