St. Luke’s is Building a New Hospital in Monroe County – Opening Fall of 2016

With the Temple-St. Luke’s School of Medicine, St. Luke’s has created the first and only regional medical school campus in the Lehigh Valley, validating our commitment to stay at the forefront of continual innovations in health care. St. Luke’s Bethlehem, a Level I Trauma Center, has a busy general surgery residency along with a surgical critical care fellowship.
This employed position offers:
- Competitive Salary with incentive plan

In addition to extremely supportive administration and high level of morale among medical staff, there are significant advantages to the locale. The office and hospital are located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, one of the most popular areas for outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking and white water rafting. You can live in the heart of the Pocono Mountains or easily do a short commute from the Lehigh Valley.
Lehigh Valley is centrally located 60 miles North of Philadelphia and 80 miles West of New York City, with easy access to the Pocono Mountains and coastal New Jersey. Excellent school systems and affordable housing can be found with easy access to the hospital.
