Coaldale, PA (1/25/2013) - St. Luke’s Hospital – Miners Campus recently announced plans to open a 7,600 square foot medical center in Tamaqua this spring. Located at 137 Railroad Street, site of the former Rite Aid Pharmacy, the Tamaqua Medical Center will offer outpatient orthopaedic services, sports medicine and x-ray, as well as outpatient laboratory services.

The St. Luke’s Orthopaedic Specialist practice of Dr. Chandra Reddy, currently located on the third floor at St. Luke’s Miners Hospital, will be relocating to the new site. Fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Reddy began seeing patients at St. Luke’s Miners in April of 2011. His superior clinical ability, coupled with his excellent bedside manner, has led to his practice already outgrowing the current location. As part of St. Luke’s ongoing effort to serve the people of Carbon and Schuylkill counties, Dr. Maheep Vikram recently joined the practice, specializing in sports medicine.

The Tamaqua Medical Center is another example of the continuous commitment to bring the best and brightest physicians of St. Luke’s University Health Network to the communities served by St. Luke’s Miners Campus. Other recent additions include Cardiologists Richard Kolecki MD, Sobhan Kodali MD, Lynn Moran DO and Christopher Cutitta DO as well as Medical Oncologist Renu Lamba MD and Surgical Oncologist Rod Quiros MD. Jonathan Bingham MD also recently started with the new St. Luke’s Urology Service at the Miners Campus.

“We are committed to serving the counties surrounding our hospital,” says William Moyer, President of St. Luke’s Miners Campus. “That commitment is demonstrated through the strong professional talent we’re bringing to the region, along with the investment we are making in new facilities and advanced technology. This is an exciting time for St. Luke’s Miners and our community.”

St. Luke's Hospital - Miners Campus is a fully accredited, not-for-profit, 45-bed acute care hospital located in Coaldale. Accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), St. Luke¹s Miners Hospital provides a wide variety of health care services.
