In September 2016, Schuylkill Health of the Pottsville area in Schuylkill County became part of Lehigh Valley Health Network. Schuylkill Health had two hospitals. Schuylkill Medical Center–East Norwegian Street, established in 1920 by a group of area physicians as the A.C. Miliken Hospital, became Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill E. Norwegian Street. The East Norwegian Street hospital spent more than 50 years as a Catholic facility under the direction of the Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Schuylkill Medical Center–South Jackson Street, founded in 1895 as the Hospital of Pottsville primarily for the care of people associated with industrial businesses in and around Pottsville, became Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill S. Jackson Street. LVH–Schuylkill serves Pottsville, Schuylkill County and surrounding communities. Highlighted services at LVH–Schuylkill:
- Stine Acute Rehabilitation
- Advanced Wound Center
- Behavioral Health Services (senior, adult, adolescent)
- Family Birth and Newborn Center
- LVHN Cancer Center–Schuylkill
Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is comprised of 13 hospital campuses plus numerous health centers, physician practices, rehabilitation locations, ExpressCARE sites and other outpatient care locations in 10 eastern Pennsylvania counties. Our health care professionals provide amazing care every day.
At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we continually go the extra mile to further our mission to heal, comfort and care for the people of our community. Each one of our 19,000 colleagues contributes to this mission and helps make all communities we serve healthier – and better – places to live.
Vision – access to superior health care
The inspiration for our modern-day health network came from Leonard Parker Pool, the founder of Air Products. In addition to having a brilliant mind for business, Pool also had a passion for health care and serving his fellow man. In the late 1960s, that passion became personal.
When Pool’s wife, Dorothy, had to travel back and forth from the Lehigh Valley to New York City to receive leading-edge cancer treatment, Leonard Pool realized many in his community did not have the means to travel outside the region for such care. He had a vision to create a “superior regional hospital” so people could receive the best possible care without leaving the Lehigh Valley. He donated $5 million to help bring that vision to life, which led in 1974 to the construction of what is now Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township, Pa.
Vision realized – again and again
Guided by Pool’s vision, we have since transformed into one of the nation's most respected health networks, offering comprehensive care in 95 clinical specialties across eight campuses. This care is complemented by clinical research and education, including a medical school partnership with the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine that’s preparing the doctors of tomorrow through the SELECT program.
