The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
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.
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.
