Thursday, October 4, 2018

JEFFERSON HILLS, Pa. – Allegheny Health Network’s Jefferson Hospital is now offering outpatient child and adolescent psychiatric care, serving Pittsburgh’s South Hills and surrounding areas with a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program.

Led by Aileen Oandasan, MD, the child and adolescent psychiatry team includes an advanced nurse practitioner and several licensed behavioral health professionals experienced in providing therapy for children, adolescents and families. The program provides care for a variety of behavioral and psychiatric disorders, including post-traumatic stress, anxiety and attention deficit, and offers an intensive outpatient program.

Dr. Oandasan is a seasoned child and adolescent psychiatrist with expertise in affective and autism spectrum disorders as well as anxiety and disruptive behaviors. She received her medical degree from Texas A&M University, completed general adult psychiatric training at Georgetown University, and a child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Dr. Oandasan has served in many leadership capacities, including Associate Clinical Professor, Vice Chairman of Behavioral Medicine at Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown, Pa., and Director of Behavioral Medicine at The Children's Institute in Pittsburgh. At Jefferson, she expects to build on the continuum of child psychiatric care offered at AHN, focused on providing expert and compassionate care for patients and their families.
