Allegheny Health Network said Thursday it will relocate 700 employees from its corporate headquarters on Pittsburgh's North Shore to its Downtown spaces.

AHN Spokesman Dan Laurent said in an email that the move will “reduce operating costs and ultimately lower costs for our customers, members and patients.”

Some of the departments affected by the move are human resources, information technology and top executives. The employees will move to either Penn Avenue Place or Fifth Avenue Place, Downtown.

“We also believe it will help further enhance the integration of our health care delivery and financing system by creating more productive use of workspace that maximizes real-time collaboration within the enterprise,” Laurent said, declining to comment on specific financial implications of the move.

Highmark Health is the parent company of insurer Highmark Inc. and Allegheny Health Network.

AHN's North Shore offices are located at 30 Isabella Street, near PNC Park.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
