“It became very clear that there was a unique opportunity to build the future of healthcare and build a hospital and medical campus here that could serve everybody to the north,” said Highmark CEO David Holmberg.
“For this particular community, there’s a lot of women that travel for their maternity care and their delivery, so we’re going to be putting a lot of time and effort and energy in to making it the best possible space for women,” said Cynthia Hundorfean, the CEO and president of Allegheny Health Network.
“I think building this hospital is sort of an extension of the philosophy that we’ve had in womens’ [health], which is the same philosophy that Highmark Health and Allegheny Health Network has, and that’s really pushing care back into the community,” said Dr. Allan Klapper.
It will have a spacious lobby, a café that serves coffee and healthy food, as well as a rooftop terrace where new moms can relax.
It’s set to open in 2021.
