HNL Lab Medicine has relocated its Kutztown patient service center from Normal Avenue to the Maxatawny Marketplace shopping mall.
The new facility opened Oct. 17 and held a grand reopening today.
HNL Lab Medicine said the move will streamline patient care by increasing access and overall convenience.
“We are always proud to put our patients’ needs first, and that is reflected in the design of our new facility,” said Jessica Bargilione, director of marketing for HNL. “This latest move embodies our dedication to providing proper patient care when needed, where needed.”
The new facility’s hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The National Kitchen & Bath Association is relocating its corporate headquarters to Bethlehem.
The non-profit trade association for the $189 billion kitchen and bath industry and owners of the largest North American Kitchen and Bath trade show, KBIS, is moving from Hackettstown, New Jersey to 1 W. Broad St. A ribbon cutting will be held Nov. 8.
“Why Bethlehem? It’s an emerging “creative class” city with a rich history, world-class colleges, and universities, a diverse population, the amazing Hotel Bethlehem to house out-of-town guests, and access to major transportation hubs,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO and Moravian University alum.
“We look forward to joining and contributing to the dynamic Bethlehem community while providing an exceptional work environment for our employees,” Darcy said. “Our global reach connects some of the largest kitchen and bath manufacturers, retailers and design professionals around the world and we are anxious to introduce them to the beauty and unique culture embedded in the Lehigh Valley.”
The move was inspired by a need to find a location that would support a new philosophy of what the ideal “work environment” comprises, Darcy said. The adoption of hybrid workplace policies, the need for flexibility, and for technical acuity coupled with a desire to connect with makers, artists, technologists, and other creative class contributors in a small urban location made Bethlehem a logical candidate.
“We needed to change how and where we operate to fit the work and technology paradigm,” Darcy said. “The new, dynamic space will do just that. 1 W. Broad Street was chosen after an extensive search. Multiple locations of varying sizes and types were considered in various locations across the Lehigh Valley.”
The NKBA incorporated wellness components in the design of its new headquarters and includes its “Carry the Keys” cycling initiative.
Led by Darcy, several NKBA staffers and association members including 2022 Chairman of the Board Basil Larkin, 2014 Past President John Petrie and NKBA & CEDIA member Ryan Herd, are joining in a bicycle trek from Hackettstown, New Jersey to Bethlehem on Nov. 8. They will carry the keys from the former headquarters to the new location, reinforcing their commitment to health, wellness and good living – all part of the NKBA vision.

Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School will move to the former Fuller Co. headquarters after renovations are complete.
Feinberg Real Estate Advisors, LLC represented the Lehigh Valley Academy Regional Charter School (LVA) in its purchase of 2040 Avenue C, a three-story, 210,000 square-foot property in Bethlehem for $15.5 million.
The property, which was built in 1976 for the Fuller Co headquarters and expanded in 1996 when Fuller Co become part of the FLSmidth group of companies, will be redeveloped for the Lehigh Valley Academy, an IB World School, and will be ready for occupancy for the opening of the 2023-2024 school year.
Cindy McDonnell Feinberg, CCIM of Feinberg Real Estate Advisors, LLC represented LVA in the acquisition of the property. The sellers, FLSmidth, INC and Fuller Co., were represented by JLL.
“The size and location of the property made it a perfect choice for LVA’s new K through 12 campus,” said LVA Chief Executive Officer Susan Mauser. “The location is less than one mile from our current location and remains very convenient for our students, their families and our staff.”
“When the property became available our architect, ALLOY5 Architecture, did a test fit to determine if our three schools, K-5, 6-8 and 9-12, would fit into the two three-story buildings, Mauser said. “We determined that they would fit perfectly so we spent the past nine months preparing the designs, confirming school configurations and obtaining board approval for our new location.”
“The size of the property and the complexity of the buildings made for a very interesting project,” said Feinberg. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with LVA, their architects, attorney, engineers and management teams on the review and acquisition of the property. I look forward to watching the transformation of the former FLSmidth headquarters into the new LVA campus.”
