Supporting the Success of Individual Physicians, Practices, and Communities.

New Members

A Welcome from James W. Manley, DO, GLVIPA Chair

Welcome New Physician Members, 

For more than two decades, the Greater Lehigh Valley Independent Practice Association has established its worth as an effective instrument for supporting the professional performance of our community’s physicians and practices.  

Today, the GLVIPA has more than 1,700 physician members and nearly 1,000 APCs and is the gateway to multiple programs which have earned national recognition for innovation in promoting quality medicine through regional physicians working together toward well-defined goals.

There are many reasons for this legacy of success.  Foremost among them is the important fact that GLVIPA is a 100% physician-driven organization. As such, each member understands the challenges of providing quality patient care in today’s health care environment, and is uniquely qualified to help transform these challenges into positive change. By consolidating our individual experiences and energies into the singular focus provided by GLVIPA, our members have played a key role in shaping the course of our community’s health…rather than waiting for it to be shaped for us. 

This organization provides several exciting opportunities to get involved and I encourage you to do so. The more active you are, the more you can benefit.  If I can be of further assistance, please contact me or any of our Board members. Thank you for joining the GLVIPA. 


James W. Manley, DO

Chairman, GLVIPA
