Lehigh Valley Health Network plans to open a new health center next month in Richland Township, part of an area of Upper Bucks County that is experiencing a health care building boom.
LVHN is putting the finishing touches on the Health Center at Richland Township, 320 W. Pumping Station Road, a one-floor, 16,000-square-foot building that had been the former Workout Plus.
The center, which is scheduled to open to patients July 16, will on July 14 hold a community open house and provide free health screenings and activities.
The facility will offer a variety of services, including family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, X-ray and ultrasound and a Health Network Laboratory.
An ExpressCARE, a walk-in site that treats children and adults with minor illnesses and injuries, also will open.
St. Luke’s University Health Network is building a $100 million hospital nearby in Milford Township. The 131,000-square-foot building will be on 30 acres at the corner of Route 663 and Portzer Road.
The hospital complex, which will replace St. Luke’s existing hospital in nearby Quakertown, is expected to open by fall 2019.
The hospital campus is adjacent to the LifeQuest Nursing Center expansion and Milford Village, a proposed massive mixed-use complex of housing, retail and professional office space and services on 261 acres.
