When there is a life-threatening illness or injury, physicians and families often turn to critical care services at Allegheny Health Network (AHN). We're among only a few programs in western Pennsylvania with doctors, nurses, and facilities dedicated to helping people achieve the best possible recovery.
Our critical care services provide a lifeline to our sickest patients. We deliver a broad range of services 24 hours a day in dedicated facilities called intensive care units (ICUs).
Whether patients are recovering from a heart attack or brain surgery, we provide the treatments and ongoing monitoring that keeps their care moving forward.
