Our hospital network has grown quickly over the past 10 years, with 3 new campuses built in the last 3 years. ASB covers ten inpatient campuses and three ambulatory surgery centers. Our primary inpatient facility, St. Luke’s University Hospital at Bethlehem Campus is a Level One Trauma Center. The St. Luke’s Anderson campus, a Level Two Trauma Center, houses the newly built Mother and Baby Pavilion that opened in January 2020 and performs 3500 deliveries a year. We have a dedicated team of fellowship-trained CT anesthesiologists who provide cardiac care. We take care of “bread and butter” pediatric cases and have a fellowship-trained pediatric team in charge of more challenging cases. In addition, we perform anesthesia for orthopedics, thoracic, neurosurgery, IR, urology, GYN, ENT, vascular, and general surgery.
ASB is thoroughly committed to the Surgical Home concept. We have an acute pain service, run the pre-op program including a surgical optimization clinic, and are well entrenched in ERAS protocols for nearly all of our specialties. Our network emphasizes physician leadership and our Chair of Anesthesia is now the Senior Vice President to whom all other medical departments report, including surgery. One of our docs is VPMA at one of our hospital campuses, and we have leadership positions in critical care, blood banking, and OB. One of our docs heads a team of post-doc fellows for clinical research.
