The Team

Lehigh Valley Hospital is ranked among the best programs in the country for Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery.

Below is a group picture of the LVPG Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons who help make that ranking possible.

It takes a large team to make us one of the best heart and lung surgery programs in the country. 

This team consists of cardiologists, anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, oncologists, and medical consultants from all disciplines.

And, the team consists of nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, physical therapists, and on and on.

Finally, to keep it all together, it takes a crack team of hospital and practice administrators.

Indeed, teamwork is important and I'm blessed with the best team in every category. Actually, it's the best part of the job -- working with these fine professionals. Think about it: I spend 80% of my waking-day at work. These people are my extended family. And most of all, they provide all of the care you and your family will need.

The Magnet Nursing Award

Congratulations to our nurses at Lehigh Valley Hospital for achieving Magnet Hospital Status!

Did you know that this is the most prestigious award in nursing?

Lehigh Valley Hospital is one of only 60 or so hospitals in the country and the only full-service hospital in Pennsylvania to receive this award. Fox-Chase Cancer Center also received this award, but they are considered a specialty hospital. 

The award signifies that Lehigh Valley Hospital is a "magnet" to attract the highest quality nurses, because of the hospital's achievements in nursing care, education, and research.
