Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG) is among the largest medical groups in the United States with more than 1,800 providers. Our practitioners perform approximately 2 million visits annually in our practices, hospitals and other affiliated locations. LVPG was founded in 1993 as a not-for-profit subsidiary of Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), one of the largest health systems in Pennsylvania.
LVPG began as the faculty practice plan for LVHN, initially comprised of 24 physicians. The last decade has seen enormous growth in both medical practitioners and specialty practices. LVPG’s health care professionals are working together to deliver care in increasingly innovative ways.
LVPG is a physician-led organization that pairs physician leaders with administrative leaders. As LVPG’s health care professionals continue to provide excellent care, an increasing focus is placed on quality metrics as they relate to population or community health. As a result, processes for the consistent collection of data are now standardized throughout LVPG practices. Our providers meet as a group each month, providing a forum for collegial networking as well as an opportunity for discussion of current initiatives.
