Mission and Values
At Allegheny Health Network, we put our patients first. Our dedication to medical ingenuity, clinical excellence, compassionate care and research is rooted in our rich history of restoring good health to all people in many communities.
We provide patients with the right care, at the right place, at the right time. This means that we work as a team to coordinate patients' care from start to finish. We ensure that each patient receives exceptional, innovative health services that result in the best possible outcome. And we offer easy access to care through our seven hospitals and 200 primary- and specialty-care practices that dot the landscape of western Pennsylvania and extend to Ohio and West Virginia.
Our physicians continually research new treatments and cures that allow us to bring medical discoveries from the laboratory directly to our patients. These breakthroughs help to save lives and give our patients access to some of the most progressive approaches to medicine.
The network's extensive fellowship and residency programs train the next generation of doctors while our continuing medical education program provides our health care professionals with the latest updates in all areas of medicine. We also operate with state-of-the-art tools and technologies in research, information technology, finance and other support areas.
While the health care industry continues to transform, Allegheny Health Network serves as our patients' partner by giving them choices and providing cost-efficient medical care. We are committed to caring as much about our patients as we care about the cure – making sure our patients always come first.
To truly serve the people in our communities – where we too live and work – we reach outside the walls of our hospitals and offices and provide medical care, health resources and education. Our hospitals have been a mainstay in the Pittsburgh region for many decades, continually focused on our main purpose – our patients and our communities.
We are committed to giving individuals and families the tools and resources they need to achieve optimal health through community outreach projects and initiatives, including:
- Classes, lecturers and training
- Wellness events
- Prevention and early-detection programs
- Health-needs assessments
- Support groups
- Research and clinical trials
- Helping to form health policy, standards and guidelines
