Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville opened a Level II trauma center on Wednesday.

The designation by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation allows the hospital to treat more complex medical emergencies.

The hospital is owned by Highmark's Allegheny Health Network.

With a Level II trauma center, there are dedicated emergency room resources such as an operating room and specially trained doctors to quickly treat patients.

Accredited trauma centers regularly are evaluated by the Trauma Systems Foundation.

Other recent investments in the Forbes facility include a Breast Care Center, a liver disease clinic, expanded orthopaedic and neurosurgical capabilities and a robotic surgery program.
