Friday, March 20, 2020
BRENTWOOD, Pa. – Allegheny Health Network (AHN) announced today that AHN Brentwood Neighborhood Hospital will officially open to patients on Monday, March 23 at 9 AM.
Located at the corner of Saw Mill Run Boulevard (Route 51) and Greenlee Road, AHN Brentwood Neighborhood Hospital will provide 24/7 access to high-quality health care services. Staffed by board-certified physicians, nurses and other experienced health care professionals, the facility includes an emergency department and a 10-bed inpatient unit for observation and short-stay use.
Among numerous patient-friendly design elements in the new hospital, the nearly 36,000-square-foot facility features nursing stations uniquely configured to maximize sightlines and accessibility, allowing staff to easily monitor exam rooms and minimize response times. Advanced CT and X-ray procedure rooms will accommodate patients of any age, with adjacent observation rooms that keep families together during procedures. An onsite lab will expedite testing results for patients.
AHN Brentwood will be closely integrated with the network’s Jefferson Hospital, in nearby Jefferson Hills, and AHN’s hospitals in the City of Pittsburgh for patients who require a more acute level of care or follow-up appointments with specialty providers. It also will complement Jefferson’s existing outpatient and primary care services in the Brentwood community.
The opening of AHN Brentwood follows the openings of AHN’s neighborhood hospitals in Hempfield and McCandless. AHN Harmar Neighborhood Hospital is expected to open this fall. The Network’s four neighborhood hospitals are part of a joint venture partnership between AHN and Emerus – the nation’s leading developer and operator of neighborhood hospitals.
