St. Luke'sSacred Heart Hospital’s dental residency program will now be named St. Luke’s Sacred Heart Dental Residency following a March 2018 merger of St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) and Sacred Heart HealthCare System. Sacred Heart—which consists of Sacred Heart Hospital in downtown Allentown, PA, primary care centers at 10 sites throughout the Lehigh Valley and senior housing services—has united with Bethlehem, PA-based SLUHN to enhance the health care and quality of life of Allentown and Lehigh County residents.

With the completion of the merger, SLUHN is now comprised of 10 hospitals, 315 outpatient sites and 14,000 employees serving 10 counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, treating more Greater Lehigh Valley residents than any other health care network.

The newly named St. Luke’s Sacred Heart Dental Residency is a 52-week general practice residency program that challenges dental residents with a variety of learning experiences, including inpatient management, hospital rotations, management of people with special needs and community service, in addition to full-time clinical practice duties.
