Allegheny Health Network and Saint Vincent Hospital Break Ground on Health + Wellness Pavilion East Side
Allegheny Health Network and Saint Vincent Hospital today joined community leaders in Erie to break ground on the new Allegheny Health Network Health + Wellness Pavilion East Side, located at 4950 Buffalo Road in Harborcreek Township.
The AHN Health + Wellness Pavilion East Side will bring together comprehensive Saint Vincent services in one convenient location, including primary care, specialty care for cardiology, orthopaedics, dermatology and podiatry. It will also include an urgent care center, rehabilitation, occupational medicine and laboratory services.
Other services featured at the new facility will include 3D digital tomosynthesis mammography, state-of the-art CT technology, general and orthopaedic X-rays, DEXA scanning for bone density testing, and general, cardiac and vascular ultrasound.
Construction on the 30,000 square-foot Pavilion began last week, with an expected completion in early 2019.
“Saint Vincent opened its AHN Health + Wellness Pavilion West Side in Erie a few years ago with the goal of offering residents of the west corridor access to comprehensive outpatient services close to home, and that facility has well exceeded our expectations in the number of patients we are caring for,” said Chris Clark, DO, MHA, President of Saint Vincent Hospital. “The Pavilion we are breaking ground on today brings that same level of high quality services to those who live in our east side communities and we look forward to the outstanding experience that it will offer.”
The Health + Wellness Pavilion East Side will be AHN’s fifth such facility. In addition to the West Side Pavilion in Erie, others are located in the Wexford, Bethel Park and Peters Township communities close to Pittsburgh.
The facility is being built adjacent to the Saint Vincent Urgent Care Center East, which opened in 1998 and annually treats more than 11,800 patients annually, as well as Saint Vincent East Harbor Primary Care, which treats more than 5,100 patients each year. The building itself will be valued at $6.5 million, with an additional $5 in furnishings, equipment, and advanced technologies, bringing a total of $12 million in value to the east Erie community.
