Jefferson Hospital

History

Jefferson Hospital 

Jefferson Hospital's roots date back to turn of the 20th century with the founding of Homestead and St. Joseph's hospitals. Since then, Jefferson has become one of the most successful community-based health care providers in southwestern Pennsylvania.

By the early 1970's, the boards of directors of Homestead and St. Joseph's hospitals recognized an opportunity to provide more comprehensive health care services to the rapidly growing southern suburban communities of Pittsburgh. In 1973, the two hospitals consolidated to form South Hills Health System, which eventually underwent a name change to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.

In 2013, the board of directors, once again recognized an opportunity to expand Jefferson's service offerings and better serve the needs of those living in the South Hills communities by partnering with Highmark and becoming part of the Allegheny Health Network as Jefferson Hospital.

Today Jefferson is an important part of the South Hills landscape and continues to provide award-winning, patient-centered care.
