Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Lehigh Valley Physician Group, or LVPG, has relocated four specialty practices in Carbon County.
LVPG Cardiology-Lehighton, LVPG Neurology-Lehighton, LVPG Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine-Lehighton and LVPG Vascular Surgery-Lehighton have all moved to 1001 Mahoning St. in Lehighton, a little more than a mile from their previous location at 363 N. First St.
The move creates space for the introduction of ExpressCARE at Lehighton at the 363 N. First location. ExpressCARE at Lehighton will provide treatment for common illnesses and minor injuries without an appointment, including flu, bronchitis, ear infection, sore throat and fever.
Lehigh Valley Health Network currently operates 19 ExpressCARE locations. ExpressCARE at Lehighton is expected to open in late summer.
