Patients of Allegheny Health Network (AHN), a subsidiary of Highmark Health, will soon have a new convenient, state-of-the-art care option in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, about 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
Real estate investment firm Seavest Healthcare Properties, LLC and development partner, Trammell Crow Company, are pleased to announce a new, Class A, 75,000-square-foot care facility for AHN, a leading integrated delivery care system in Western Pennsylvania.
The new Hempfield facility, consisting of an emergency department and 10-bed, small-format hospital; a full-service cancer center; and medical office space, is part of a neighborhood hospital complex the Network is building at the intersection of Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) and Agnew Road.
The small-format AHN hospital is a joint venture of AHN and Emerus, the nation’s largest operator of small-format hospitals. Emerus Holdings Inc., a Texas-based company, operates more than 20 neighborhood hospitals across the country, and recently surpassed the one million patients treated milestone.
“With this neighborhood hospital and community cancer center, we are bringing to Westmoreland County an innovative, patient-centered model that will provide the best possible experience, quality and outcomes for those requiring emergency care, short hospital stays, cancer care, and other outpatient services,” said Cynthia Hundorfean, AHN President and CEO. “We have taken a number of important steps over the past year to expand access to AHN physicians and programs in Westmoreland County, and this wonderful new facility will further ensure that the people who live here have exceptional choices close to home for their health care needs.”
“Seavest is privileged to be a part of this project, helping to bring expanded healthcare services to Westmoreland County,” explains Jonathan Winer, Senior Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Seavest Healthcare Properties. “Not only will the project bring expanded emergency services, cancer care and medical specialists to the area, there is the potential to add more services in the future.”
“Trammell Crow Company is honored to be a part of making this project a reality for the community,” said Davis Griffin, a Principal with Trammell Crow Company. “Speed to market is essential for this project. Relying upon our top-notch team in place and our long-standing relationship with Seavest, we will be able to accelerate our construction timeline in order for AHN to meet its goals for opening the facility.”
Construction of the Hempfield project commenced in July, with completion of the cancer center anticipated by late summer 2019 and the remainder of the building in November 2019.
