Chief Nurse Executive Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the Allegheny Health Network Nursing website!

As part of the integrated delivery network that is AHN, the nursing team embodies the mission of delivering high quality, accessible care resulting in excellent outcomes. To achieve this goal, we empower our nurses to practice at their highest level in all settings – at one of our hospitals, an ambulatory surgery center, or at one of the Allegheny Clinics.

In their practice, our nurses embrace the AHN core behaviors, which are critical to our strategy. The core behaviors embodied by all AHN nurses start with putting the patient at the center of everything we do.

We engage in transformational leadership as we drive to create the future of healthcare and we trust working together as we collaborate to achieve shared success. This is all accomplished through purposeful execution as we value not just activity, but outcomes.

Nurses at AHN provide care that saves lives, restores health, and prevents illness. Demonstrated in the Care Delivery and Professional Practice Models, nurses at AHN embrace evidenced-based practice, collaboration across disciplines, and autonomy of practice. There is no better environment to practice nursing in Western Pennsylvania, Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York than at AHN.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about nursing at Allegheny Health Network. If you work at AHN as a nurse already, you will be inspired by what you are already a part of. If you don’t work as a nurse at AHN, I am confident you will quickly seek out opportunities to join us.

After all, at Allegheny Health Network, nurses are the greatest where they make the greatest difference.
