$1B expansion project coming to Allegheny General in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Health Network and Highmark Health, the system's parent company, are planning a $1 billion, 10-year transformation project for Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.

The plan includes major construction and renovation projects like a new patient tower that will house the AHN Cardiovascular Institute, which is expected to begin construction in early 2025 and open in 2030, according to an April 4 news release. 

The institute will comprise more than 100 private inpatient beds, cardiac catheterization, cardiac surgery, electrophysiology, stress echocardiography, nuclear medicine and wound care. It will also feature a cardiovascular intensive care unit, an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program, physician offices, and multidisciplinary cardiovascular clinics. 

The tower's ground floor will house the hospital's expanded and upgraded emergency department to support its emergency and trauma capabilities. 

The tower project will be completed in phases to minimize patient care and community disruptions.
