Lehigh Valley Health Network today opened its latest ExpressCARE center, this one in Upper Bucks County.
“We’re thrilled about this new facility, and we’ve been serving the community for a long time without a lot of awareness,” said Dr. Brian Nester, president and CEO of LVHN.
The new ExpressCARE, at 320 W. Pumping Station Road, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.
Nester referred to the longtime joint partnership with Grand View Health at the Health Center at Quakertown, a physicians’ group facility at the Quakertown Shopping Plaza on Route 309. That center offers primary and specialty health care for adults and children, as well as physical and occupational therapy, diagnostic imaging and lab services.
The new ExpressCARE building is a one-story, 16,000-square-foot facility. It was an extensive renovation of the former Workout Plus property.
Nester acknowledged growth in Upper Bucks County was a tricky blend of balancing the area’s agricultural roots and its family farming heritage with demands for growth and development.
“This health center is an example of preservation,” Nester said.
At ExpressCARE, patients will have access to care without appointments for family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and diagnostics such as X-ray, ultrasound and blood testing, LVHN officials said.
