Allegheny Health Network to relocate 700 employees
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.
