Legionnaires’ Disease Linked to Medical Building

Health officials have linked an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease (also called legionellosis and Legionella pneumonia) to a medical building owned by Integrated Health Campus, located at 250 Cetronia Road, Allentown.  A number of outpatient clinics and other businesses are located there, including Coordinated Health, OAA Orthopaedic Specialists,  St. Luke’s – Advanced Gynecologic Care Center, Allentown Surgery Center, Steel Fitness Premier and Mocha Mikes.

To date, the state has identified 6 patients with Legionnaires’ disease linked to the 250 Cetronia building. Others may also have been sickened by water mist at the building. State health officials have asked doctors to take a closer look at anyone who developed pneumonia-like symptoms within 14 days after visiting a medical office or other business at the building.

The primary symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease include the following:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Cough (may bring up mucus and blood)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Confusion

Two fountains have been turned off, one in and one just outside of the building. Water samples from the fountains and other locations in the building are being tested for Legionella bacteria.
