Words from VSBA

The Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network's new building on its Muhlenberg campus in Bethlehem, PA, revitalizes and expands the existing facility. After conducting master and organizational planning for the Hospital, we embarked on a $42 million renovation of 100,000 square feet and creation of a new 7-story, 265,000 sf patient tower and clinical care units.

The architect of record / health planner for the project worked closely with our firm, which performed site planning and design for the hospital's exterior and interior public spaces. Construction occurred without impacting the ongoing function of the hospital and site.

The expanded Hospital features 188 new private rooms for critical care, cardiac, and medical/surgical patients, an expansion of the Regional Heart Center, an intensive care unit, Diagnostic Care Center, new hospital entrance and lobby, a new cafeteria, retail space, and increased visitor and staff parking.
