Lehigh Valley Hospital–Carbon Expands to Provide More Services Closer to Home.
Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Carbon has expanded to meet the growing needs of the residents of Carbon County. LVH–Carbon has added a new intensive care unit and an expanded medical-surgical unit, part of a $12 million project to enhance inpatient and outpatient services.
“This is a direct response to community need,” says Christine Biege, RN, President, LVH–Carbon. “We started to plan for enhancements that would make access to care and our patient experience even better not long after our June 2022 opening.”
The seven-bed intensive care unit and four additional medical-surgical beds will begin accepting patients Oct. 2.
LVH–Carbon also recently completed other additions and expansions at the Health Center at Carbon, located on Blakeslee Boulevard. These additions include:
- Outpatient laboratory services
- Cardiac Rehabilitation Center
- DEXA scan machine to diagnose osteoporosis
- Pulmonary function testing (PFT) to determine how well the lungs exchange air
Breast Health Services has been relocated to the hospital campus, and technology enhancements have been implemented. In addition to the latest 3D mammography unit, the Breast Health Services location now offers automated breast ultrasound (ABUS), the only breast cancer screening technology FDA-approved for use in women (individuals born biologically
female) with dense breast tissue.
LVH–Carbon has welcomed many new physicians to the community in the past year, expanding access to a higher level of care and delivering more primary care clinicians and more clinical specialists.

Alice took over an hour of her day to meet with me and provide me with great opportunities and information to help grow my business! If you go to a card exchange or some other event that is great, but Alice showed me that it is possible to utilize the Chambers services and resources in so many other ways! Just sitting with her and listening provided me with many leads..."
