Hope Starts Here: State-Of-The-Art Rehabilitation Hospital Coming to Center Valley

Nationally, only a handful of new rehabilitation hospitals are built each year. By early 2023, leading-edge inpatient rehabilitation care is coming to Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network plans to open a state-of-the-art destination campus in Upper Saucon Township for people who have sustained complex injuries, such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury or multiple traumatic injuries. The new hospital will have four stories and feature 76 private beds.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for September 2021.

Hope Starts Here

Situated on 45 acres of Good Shepherd-owned land across from the Promenade Shops, the parcel’s central location within the region and close proximity to Route 309 and Interstate 78 offer patients and families easy access to Good Shepherd’s world-class services. With adjacent restaurants, hotels, entertainment and shopping, families can find respite while Good Shepherd helps their loved ones recover.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital is the only freestanding hospital fully dedicated to rehabilitation in our region. Once the hospital relocates to Center Valley in 2023, Good Shepherd will maintain a healthy and vibrant presence in South Allentown as a hub for outpatient and support services, as well as a home for our residents. We plan to renovate and repurpose the hospital building to continue serving the community in new and innovative ways. Feasibility studies are in progress to determine re-use.

What You Can Expect in Center Valley

At 123,000-square-feet, the new, freestanding rehabilitation hospital in Center Valley will provide acute inpatient rehabilitation for adults, including physician/physiatry services; nursing; occupational, physical, respiratory, recreational and speech therapies; imaging; pharmacy; clinical psychology; and more.

“Good Shepherd’s outstanding outcomes, compassionate care and excellent service are nationally recognized, which attracts patients from throughout the region and beyond. This convenient, new location will enhance our ability to care for patients in a comfortable, state-of-the-art hospital,” said Michael Spigel, PT, MHA, President & CEO of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network. “We also are confident that our vast collection of rehabilitation technologies, spacious indoor and outdoor therapy areas and highly specialized staff, such as certified rehabilitation registered nurses and physiatrists, will further set us apart.”

More information about programs, services and technologies coming to the new rehabilitation hospital will be released as the project progresses.

FCA (Francis Cauffman Architects) of Philadelphia is the project’s architect. IMC Construction is the construction company. KRN Development is the land developer.
