New Luke University Pediatric Health Center Opens in Central Valley on Monday

This is the first separate facility built by St. Luke, designed exclusively for the treatment of children. To celebrate its completion, the health network held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday morning. The three-story facility at 5425 Lanark Road is 37,500 square feet, and each floor has themes such as underwater, wildlife and space.

Many of St. Luke’s Pediatrics, a growing team of pediatricians, will be based at the facility, including St. Luke’s Pediatrics in Coopersburg, St. Luke’s press release said. Pediatric specialties are available at the center:

  • Nephrology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Cardiology
  • pulmonology
  • Developing
  • Neurology
  • Endocrinology
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Pediatric primary care
  • Baby food

The new center is part of St. Luke’s investment in the development of pediatrics and pediatric specialties, the press release said.

“We have promised this community to bring quality pediatric care closer to home, and today we are fulfilling that promise again,” said Dr. Jennifer Janko, head of pediatrics at St. Luke’s Hospital. “With our hospital services, outpatient services and family-oriented services, families can count on staying local to receive quality care for their children.”

In 2020, the eight-bed pediatric intensive care unit opened on the Fountain Hill campus, and the network also recently announced that it has joined the Children’s Hospital Association.
