Located in Bethlehem Township, this new 75,000 sq/ft Specialty Pavilion expands the breadth of offerings at the St. Luke’s Anderson Campus. This new building includes ambulatory surgery, urology, OB/GYN, gastroenterology, and laboratory services. Designed with convenience in mind, this facility gives patients easy access to a 21st-century hospital with the highest quality healthcare in the Lehigh Valley.
In addition to the new services offered in the Specialty Pavilion, St. Luke’s Anderson Campus features advanced services in the Hospital, Cancer Center, and Medical Office Building. Patients benefit from inpatient care, emergency room services, surgical services, radiology services, and more. At the time of its opening in 2011, the St. Luke’s Anderson Campus was the first new, full-service, acute-care hospital built in Pennsylvania in 40 years.
During the project’s design phase, the mechanical engineer, Snyder-Hoffman, consulted with UEP Northeast, specifically due to its representation of Fulton and their Vantage dual-fuel condensing boiler. The is a unique condensing boiler in that it’s highly efficient and fully condensing when firing on Natural Gas and, at the flip of a switch, can also burn #2 fuel oil. These boilers are proving heat to the building and, being installed in a critical care hospital, they need a backup fuel source for emergency purposes. The Fulton Vantage boiler was designed and optimized for this exact application. In addition, UEP Northeast designed and furnished the exhaust and combustion air systems for the boilers. This includes Schebler Model EVD exhaust pipe, Enervex Chimney Automation System & Over-Draft System as well as an Enervex Combustion Air System. In short, these systems provide adequate combustion air while also maintaining ideal draft so these boilers can operate at peak efficiency.
