Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) and Westfield Hospital announced they have signed an agreement that will allow LVHN to acquire the assets of Westfield, including the Westfield Surgery Center for ambulatory surgery.

LVHN plans to transform Westfield into the Center for Orthopedic Medicine, tentatively scheduled to open in early 2014, and will operate and staff the new orthopedic center at Westfield’s current site in South Whitehall Township.

Ronald Swinfard, MD, LVHN’s president and CEO, said the care at the center will run the gamut of orthopedic care with the focus on total joint replacement and spine surgery.
