A local hospital brings additional services to Carbon County.

Lehigh Valley Health Network's Hematology Oncology Center in Lehighton now offers weekday appointments for cardiology, general surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedics.

The new services will save many local patients a trip to the Lehigh Valley.

"We've been supporting Carbon County for decades and the ability to bring the specialists right up to their hometown and be able to be seen locally is excellent," said Lawrence Riddles, a regional chief medical officer at LVHN.

Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8 to 5.
