Most patients are treated and released the same day. For people with conditions requiring an overnight stay, including diabetic patients and those who need intravenous antibiotics, AHN Brentwood has ten in-patient beds. The nursing stations are arranged to give nurses line of sight, which can speed their response times at critical moments.
AHN Brentwood offers diagnostic imaging – CT and X-rays. Having a laboratory on site speeds testing for a variety of conditions including the flu and pregnancy so patients don’t have to wait long for results. While a variety of outpatient services are available in the building, the facility doesn’t offer outpatient diagnostic services.
Allegheny Health Network (AHN) owns and operates hospitals and microhospitals in western Pennsylvania and New York, and is building a full-service hospital in Wexford, north of Pittsburgh. Its network includes more than 250 clinical locations. It operates LifeFlight, an emergency helicopter service for critically ill or injured patients. AHN is owned by Highmark, a Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance carrier in PA.
Microhospitals are a new model for delivering health care. They offer more than urgent care facilities, less than traditional hospitals. They’re small, neighborhood hospitals located in areas that wouldn’t support traditional hospitals.
Unlike urgent care facilities, microhospitals allow patients to be admitted, although they’re not intended for long patient stays. Microhospitals also charge more for a visit than urgent care facilities.
Microhospitals have less overhead than full-service hospitals. Patients costs for visits to microhospitals are lower than at full-service hospitals. They’re located close enough to full-service hospitals to allow patients who need a higher level of care to be transferred to a larger facility, or to arrange follow-up appointments with specialists.
The nearest full-service hospital patients could be moved to is AHN’s Jefferson Hospital, which AHN Brentwood is closely aligned with. Patients could also be sent to AHN’s flagship, Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side, or West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. Patient medical records are integrated into AHN’s EPIC electronic health record, which allows them to be accessed across the AHN network.
AHN has opened four microhospitals in a joint venture with Emerus – in Brentwood, in Hamar near the Pennsylvania Turnpike, in Hempfield, Westmoreland County and in McCandless Township in the North Hills. Based in Texas, Emerus develops and operates microhospitals.
The two-story, 10-bed microhospital in Brentwood opened in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic, which affected visitation. Masks were required. COVID-19 testing was available at the microhospital.
AHN Brentwood Neighborhood Hospital is located at 3290 Saw Mill Run Blvd (Route 51), Pittsburgh, PA 15227 at Greenlee Road, making it convenient for people who live in Carrick, Brentwood, Overbrook and other neighborhoods in the area to be seen for medical emergencies.
