Lehigh Valley Health Network broke ground earlier this month on a new hospital in Northampton County, its ninth hospital in the region. According to a report in Lehigh Valley Live, a summer 2021 opening is planned for the campus in Lower Nazareth, Pa., that will include the new Lehigh Valley Hospital – Hecktown Oaks.

Reporter Steve Novak writes: “The campus will include the 106,000-square-foot, two-story hospital, a 35,000-square-foot cancer center, and a 61,000-square-foot medical office building. Lower Nazareth approved hospital plans in September.”
