Lehigh Valley Health Network’s newest ExpressCare location will open Sept. 3. The walk-in urgent care center, LVHN’s 20th ExpressCare location, is at 363 N. First St., Lehighton.
Open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., seven days a week, ExpressCare at Lehighton will provide residents with treatment for minor injuries and illnesses without an appointment, including flu, ear infections, poison ivy, sprains, strains and lacerations.
LVHN plans to open another ExpressCARE in Carbon County in Palmerton at 528 Delaware Ave. later this year.
“ExpressCARE is a great service that allows for immediate access in a convenient location right in the community for every day injuries and occurrences that do not require an emergency room,” said Dr. Grant Greenberg of the Lehigh Valley Physician Group for Family Medicine.
To make room for ExpressCARE on North First Street, Lehigh Valley Physician Group re-located four specialty practices back in July.
LVPG Cardiology-Lehighton, LVPG Neurology-Lehighton, LVPG Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine-Lehighton and LVPG-Vascular Surgery-Lehigton were moved to 1001 Mahoning St., about a mile from the new ExpressCare at Lehighton.
