Do you and your certified therapy dog enjoy bringing cheer to people of all ages? Would you like to help reduce the stress many people feel when in a hospital environment? If yes, we would love to have you join our team of certified pet therapy volunteers. Pet therapy volunteers are a valuable asset at LVH-M, enabling the hospital to provide a special service that can make a patient's stay more comfortable and pleasant.

Pet therapy volunteers and their certified dogs visit with hospital patients, guests, and staff one 2 hour shift per week. Opportunities exist for visits throughout our hospital campus seven days a week. Flexible scheduling is available.

Mission Statement

We heal, comfort and care for the people of our community by providing advanced and compassionate health care of superior quality and value, supported by education and clinical research.

Description

At Lehigh Valley Health Network, we continually go the extra mile to fulfill our mission to heal, comfort and care for the people of our community. Each one of our more than 17,000 colleagues contributes to this mission and helps make the Lehigh Valley a healthier - and better - place in which to live.
The LVHN legacy of patient-centered care began with 13 compassionate, civic-minded women more than a century ago. Caring deeply about the health and well-being of their community, they raised $5,300 for a plot of land at 17th and Chew streets in Allentown, Pa., and in 1899, opened The Allentown Hospital. Their generous example was the first step in our health network’s journey. We continue to add new facilities, services and programs to a regional campus that now includes:
We have hospitals on eight campuses:

  • LVH-Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township
  • LVH-17th Street in Allentown
  • LVHN-Tilghman in Allentown
  • LVH-Muhlenberg in Bethlehem
  • LVH-Hazleton in Luzerne County
  • LVH-Pocono in Monroe County
  • LVH-Schuylkill E. Norwegian Street
  • LVH-Schuylkill S. Jackson Street in Schuylkill County
  • Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital

The care and services we provide annually receive national recognition through awards and accreditation from organizations such as U.S. News & World Report, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and many others.
