St. Luke’s University Health Network has announced the name of its newest hospital campus in Bucks County: St. Luke’s Upper Bucks.
The name was chosen after surveying patients and consulting local business leaders.
“The name of the new hospital was important to all involved,” said Dennis Pfleiger, president of the St. Luke’s Quakertown and Upper Bucks campuses. “St. Luke’s Quakertown has been a vital part of our community for almost 25 years, and we are passionate about growing the health care options in the region and positively affecting even more lives.”
Ground was broken on St. Luke’s Upper Bucks in May 2018. The three story, 131,000-square-foot hospital, located on the corner of Route 663 and Portzer road is still under construction and expected to open in the fall.
The new facility is described by St. Luke’s as “a patient and family-friendly, modern hospital, offering comprehensive care and advanced technology to area residents.”
The St. Luke’s Upper Bucks campus will feature a 16-bed emergency room, 40-bed medical surgical unit, an intensive care unit and four operating rooms, among others.
The nearby St. Luke’s Quakertown campus on Park Avenue will remain open while undergoing renovations to allow for greater emphasis on outpatient services in the future.
