Vascular Neurologist Position Overview:

Lehigh Valley Health Network is recruiting for an additional outstanding fellowship-trained vascular neurologist to join our stroke team in providing state-of-the-art care in our comprehensive stroke center.

Graduate medical education in Neurology at LVHN includes our 5 resident/year ACGME-accredited neurology residency program, our ACGME-accredited vascular neurology fellowship, our ACGME-accredited clinical neurophysiology fellowship, and this year we will be applying for ACGME-accreditation of our new neurocritical care fellowship. This new phase of clinical and educational growth of Neurology at LVHN is being led by Dr. Steven L. Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology.

LVHN has been a Joint Commission-Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC) since 2012, with Gold Plus Elite certification by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, and with the distinction of having been the third Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC) to be certified in the nation, the first in Pennsylvania, and recently achieving our fifth Joint Commission CSC recertification. Our mobile stroke unit was the first to go live in Pennsylvania in 2019 and provides our patients with rapid imaging and thrombolytic therapy.

Over 1,500 ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke cases are admitted each year to LVHN making it one of the busiest stroke services in the nation. The hospital has 24-hour coverage for rapid response to all neurologic emergencies. The stroke neurologists and neurocritical care neurologists cover 6 hub telestroke sites in our network.
