Sam's Club to offer home delivery service in Allentown
Shopping with Sam’s Club just got easier as the company expands same-day home delivery service to several new markets across the country, including Allentown and the surrounding area.
Members and non-members in these markets have fast and easy access to Sam’s Club’s great mix of groceries, prepared meals and everyday essentials at amazing prices -- and have them delivered straight to their doorstep by Instacart, in as little as an hour.
Instacart customers will have the option to shop Sam's Club without a membership, giving them access to Sam’s Club’s signature savings and bulk shopping options, paired with the convenience of same-day delivery. However, if you are a Sam's Club member, you will receive membership rewards and lower, member-only pricing on items.
Sam’s Club and Instacart joined forces in February.
Ethos Clinic opens third Lehigh Valley location
Dr. Raja Abbas has announced the opening of his third Ethos clinic in Emmaus. The clinic has a unique approach to psychiatric wellness and features a psychiatric outpatient rehab approach, a treatment regimen that is unavailable in the Lehigh Valley.
Psychiatric outpatient rehabilitation at the Ethos clinic is a comprehensive long term program that enables patients with chronic mental health issues like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, treatment resistant depression and anxiety disorders to recover in a holistic environment. The program includes art therapy, music therapy, nutritional therapy, spiritual therapy, mindfulness with a focus on meditation, as well as physical therapy.
The unique program addresses a patient’s medical and psychiatric needs while introducing wellness education such as learning how to garden and grow food, and how to make simple meals. As patients recover from their chronic health conditions, they will be spending 3-5 days a week at the rehab program as they learn how to make their way back into the society.
The rehab program is the link in a chain of comprehensive outpatient psychiatric services provided at Ethos clinics including outpatient clinics, rehabilitation programs, partial programs, intensive outpatient services as well as psychiatric crisis centers which will be run in coordination with local, county and state agencies.
The first Ethos rehabilitation center will open in Emmaus in early 2019, with the second program opening in Lehighton in spring of 2019. A similar campus is also planned for the Ethos clinic in Bethlehem.
The Ethos clinic follows a comprehensive approach to mental health and overall wellness for people of all ages. Each individual treatment plan is created by a team of therapists who specialize in different forms of psychotherapy. But most importantly, the team believes that wellness is a combination of spiritual, emotional and physical health and offers a range of non-drug and pharmacological therapies. Treatments include counseling, drug management, state-of-the-art deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS), ketamine infusions as well as spiritual guidance.
