Allegheny Health Network opens Westmoreland outpatient center
Allegheny Health Network plans to unveil its new 23,000-square-foot outpatient center Tuesday near Westmoreland Mall in Hempfield.
The opening of the outpatient center continues AHN's expanded presence in the region. AHN Westmoreland OBGYN, an obstetrical practice that joined AHN in 2015, started seeing patients five days a week at a nearby Pellis Road facility last year.
Earlier this year, Excela Health publicly chided AHN for the expansion, calling it a duplication of services.
The AHN facility will offer primary care, neurosurgery, orthopedics, esophageal and lung disease treatment, cardiology, colon and rectal surgery and bariatric surgery.
Those in attendance Tuesday will include:
• David Holmberg, president and CEO, Highmark Health
• Cynthia Hundorfean, president and CEO of AHN.
• Mark Nussbaum, chief administrative officer of Allegheny Clinic.
• Bruce Bradley, medical director of AHN Outpatient Center—Westmoreland.
• Gina Cerilli, Westmoreland County Commission chair.
In a news release Monday, AHN officials said, “This new facility in Westmoreland County reflects AHN's and Highmark Health's commitment to provide patients with convenient access to high-quality, cost-effective health care services. Determined to keep care in the community whenever possible, AHN and Highmark Health are investing in programs and facilities like this that allow more people to get the right care in the right settings, close to home.”
