Jefferson Regional Medical Center is planning an expansion with a surgery center and office space for physicians at its Bethel Park campus as part of a partnership with Highmark Inc., the hospital said.
The Bethel Park campus, at 1000 Highbee Drive, offers diagnostic imaging, cardiac testing, women's services, orthopedic care, laboratory, virtual colonoscopy and other services, including physical and aquatic therapy. Astorino was selected as architect for the expansion, said Al Ragan, vice president, diagnostic services and business development.
The medical center said that Dr. Chong S. Park, a cardiothoracic and vascular surgeon, was appointed medical director of the Heart Institute at Jefferson Regional. Jefferson Regional Cardiologist, Dr. James F. Shanahan IV, will serve as associate director.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
