Center for Inclusion Health

At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), we believe all people should have access to the high-quality, personalized care we offer across western Pennsylvania.

Access to healthcare for all

At the Center for Inclusion Health, our programs aim to remove barriers that sometimes prevent some people from seeking the care they need.

What is the Center for Inclusion Health?

Through our Center for Inclusion Health, we aim to provide outstanding health care to everyone by focusing on three key areas:
  • An illustration of a hand holding up health symbol.

    Increasing access

    We’ve developed programs such as our healthy food center to address issues like mental health, food insecurity and housing challenges, which interfere with some people’s access to health care.

  • An illustration of a checklist with two boxes having question marks in them and one with a check mark.

    Training and education

    We educate our providers about complex cultural and health needs affecting people facing barriers to accessing high-quality care, helping them receive coordinated and compassionate care.

    Program effectiveness

    We aim to improve patients’ health while decreasing costs. We regularly evaluate program efficacy, ensuring we can continue our efforts to care for those who need it most.
