Allegheny Health Network to open 4 micro-hospitals in 2019

As part of its $1 billion investment strategy to improve access to care, Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Health Network will open four micro-hospitals in 2019.

The neighborhood hospitals, which will be open 24/7, will feature 10 inpatient beds, an emergency department and a diagnostic services department. The hospitals will be staffed with on-site primary and specialty care physicians.

"Our neighborhood hospitals will bring to communities an innovative, patient-centered model that provides the best possible experience and outcomes for those requiring emergency care, short hospital stays and other outpatient services," said Cynthia Hundorfean, Allegheny Health president and CEO. 

The health network inked a joint venture agreement with The Woodlands, Texas-based Emerus to build and manage the new facilities.

The four hospitals will be built in the Pennsylvania townships of Brentwood, Hempfield, Harmar and McCandless, all in the Pittsburgh metro area.
