Training at St. Luke’s University Hospital – Allentown Campus
St. Luke’s Hospital - Allentown Campus is a state of the art facility. This includes a newly renovated Emergency Department, an ICU, eight operating room suites with a minimally invasive flare, and a hybrid OR. Currently under construction and set to open in early 2024, is our new Mother Baby Tower at our St. Luke's Allentown Campus. The expansion will include a 16-bed Level IIIA NICU, a 3-bay obstetric triage unit, 2 operating rooms, 11 labor and delivery rooms, and 23 postpartum beds.
The residents see patients at the Star Community Health Center, an FQHC look-alike which is affiliated with St Luke’s. The clinic is located close to the Allentown hospital and provides full scale obstetric and gynecologic services. They are supported by nurse practitioners as well as a social worker and a financial counselor. Our urogynecology and minimally-invasive specialty clinics are run from this location. The clinic provides group conferencing space and private areas for mentors to review cases with the residents.
Operating suites and support areas include a state-of-the-art laparoscopic suite, teleconferencing teaching potential, and a hybrid OR. Constructed specifically with gynecologic procedures in mind, the operating rooms benefited from entirely new laparoscopic and urogyencologic/pelvic reconstruction surgical equipment. The general operating rooms occupy space immediately adjacent to Labor and Delivery and can be used as a back-up for additional obstetric surgery in addition to the Labor and Delivery obstetric operating room itself.
Adequate on-call space is provided for the Residents and the 24-hour in-house call attending physicians. On call rooms are conveniently located on the labor and delivery floor.
