Lehigh Valley Hospital in Pennsylvania to expand emergency department

Lehigh Valley Hazleton (Pa.) plans to expand its emergency room from 18 beds to 35, according to WOLF, a local Fox News affiliate.

The emergency department's lobby also will be remodeled as part of the project, expected to end in a year.

"The facility will be completely renovated for the most part," said Anthony Valente, MD, the hospital's CMO. "The care that they receive here and the convenience that they have by getting that quality care close to home in a new modern atmosphere is going to be really, really special."
