Lehigh Valley Health Network continues its expansion into Monroe County with the opening of a health center in Smithfield Township today.
Officials hosted a ribbon cutting for the Health Center at East Stroudsburg, a facility that offers primary care, internal medicine and pediatrics, cardiology and obstetrics/gynecological services.
In a news release, LVHN said it moved these practices to the new site from several locations.
The practices comprise a total of 18 providers and 34 staff who annually treat nearly 50,000 patients.
LVHN bought the building in October for $8.1 million from the Penn Regional Business Center III. A Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program state grant provided partial funding for the facility.
The two-story, 35,000-square-foot building is at 179 Independence Road.
MKSD Architects of South Whitehall Township served as the architectural firm for the project. EP Guidi Inc. of Ambler was the general contractor.
The site is not far from its Lehigh Valley Hospital-Pocono campus, the former Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg, which LVHN acquired about a year ago.
The Smithfield Township facility expands LVH-Pocono’s growing ambulatory network, joining its health centers in Bartonsville, Blakeslee, Brodheadsville and Tobyhanna which have opened since 2014.
