Good Shepherd Specialty Hospital Programs

The first facility of its kind in the Lehigh Valley, Good Shepherd Specialty Hospital is a 32-bed rehabilitation resource providing long-term acute care for patients who are medically stable but need extended medical and nursing care. Patients may be referred by a physician, insurance company, discharge planner/social worker, home health agency, or family member, or self-referral.

Ventilator Weaning Program
