Welcome to West Penn Hospital

Featuring 361 private patient beds, West Penn Hospital has served Bloomfield and its surrounding communities since 1848.

Over the years, West Penn has earned regional and national recognition for excellence in bariatric surgery, bone marrow and cell transplantation, burn care, cardiac care, nursing, women’s and infant's care, and more.

Looking to the future, West Penn Hospital will continue to grow and expand our services. The buildings highlighted in yellow represent a proposed expansion of our parking garage from 800 to 1,500 spaces.

In green are new inpatient facilities and in blue is a new ambulatory care building. Both of these are part of a project that includes construction between buildings. and tearing down and replacing Mellon Pavilion. We will also create a formal, welcoming entrance to the hospital from Liberty Avenue.

In red, you see a new power plant that will improve efficiency and reduce noise.

All of the buildings will be environmentally sustainable, using designs that fit in to the neighborhood. Our construction plans will be developed in collaboration with local residents and local governing bodies.
