“Our colleagues are Amazing! Every day!”

At Lehigh Valley Health Network, you have the opportunity to make an essential impact on the lives of your patients! We are seeking enthusiastic BC/BE Headache Neurologist who has great clinical and interpersonal skills to join our team in beautiful Allentown, PA.

Practice Overview:

The Division of Neurology at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is seeking an additional neurologist with interest and expertise in headache to join the LVHN Headache Center. The LVHN Headache Center is well established and nationally recognized. The new member will join two fellowship-trained headache specialists and additional faculty and advanced practice clinicians in the care of our large practice of headache patients. We offer the full range of services in our practice including biofeedback and a dedicated IV infusion room.

The Division of Neurology at LVHN has experienced significant growth and remarkable accomplishments during the last several years. The division developed a new section of neurocritical care in 2015 to support the care of patients in our 14-bed Neuroscience ICU and now employs four fellowship-trained neurocritical care physicians. In July 2016, we welcomed the first class of residents into our fully ACGME-accredited neurology residency program and in August 2019 we welcomed our inaugural class of fellows into our accredited vascular neurology fellowship. We have expanded our tele-stroke and tele-neurology programs, highlighted by the inauguration of our new mobile stroke unit, the first mobile stroke unit in Pennsylvania, in February 2019. LVHN has been a Joint Commission-Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center since 2012, with the distinction of having been the third Comprehensive Stroke Center to be certified in the nation, and the first in Pennsylvania. In August 2019, LVHN opened its new 24/7 level 3 epilepsy monitoring unit.

Last year we welcomed our new Chief of Neurology, Dr. Steven L. Lewis, the Editor-in-Chief of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology, to lead the next phase of growth of Neurology at LVHN. Our newly hired physician will join our employed practice which currently consists of 25 neurologists and 20 Advanced Practice Professionals in subspecialties including headache, movement disorders, clinical neurophysiology, epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases, multiple sclerosis, neurocritical care, neuro-oncology, and vascular neurology, as well as general neurology and tele-neurology. The LVHN main campus has 24-hour coverage for rapid response to potential stroke patients and other neurologic emergencies as well as fellowship trained neuro-interventional radiologists. The network owns 4 helicopters and a critical care transport team, in addition to the new mobile stroke unit.
