LVHN to offer greater access to endoscopies
Lehigh Valley Health Network, through a new joint venture with Eastern Pennsylvania Gastroenterology and Liver Specialists, will provide upper and lower endoscopies, including a screening colonoscopy, outside the hospital setting beginning Oct. 1.
LVHN currently performs colonoscopies at Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)-Cedar Crest, LVH-Muhlenberg and LVH-17th Street. The two new outpatient locations being added are Eastern Pennsylvania Endoscopy Center, 1501 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown and Nazareth Endoscopy Center, which will be located at LVHN’s Health Center at Easton, 2401 Northampton St., Easton.
EPEC is currently taking appointments. NEC will be constructed on the second floor of the Health Center at Easton and is expected to begin services in the summer.
