Saving Time, Saving Lives

When you need medical attention and can’t wait, trust Allegheny Health Network emergency departments. We are committed to getting you seen by a medical professional fast. We have some of the shortest door-to-doctor wait times in the nation, an average of 13 minutes across our health system.

Our triage system is designed to assess your condition quickly, so we can start your diagnostic testing and treatment sooner. This gives you the shortest possible wait time before you receive care.

During the triage process:

  • Necessary tests to diagnose your condition — blood tests, cardiograms, X-rays or CT scans — can be ordered before you move to a treatment room.
  • This state-of-the art imaging technology diagnoses your condition and helps determine a treatment plan.  
  • Treatment rooms are used as intended, not as a second "waiting room" for patients.
  • We guide you through every step of the process, so you understand what to expect at the emergency department

AHN stands out as your best choice for emergency care for life-threatening illnesses and injuries.. 

When medical attention can't wait, call 911 or go directly to one of our AHN emergency rooms for fast, compassionate, and advanced medical care.
