Grove City Medical Center and Allegheny Health Network Finalize Affiliation Agreement
This email is intended for producers in western Pennsylvania, central Pennsylvania, northeastern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware.
We are pleased to announce that Allegheny Health Network (AHN) and Grove City Medical Center (GCMC) have finalized an affiliation agreement that officially brings GCMC into the family of AHN hospitals.
The newly-branded AHN Grove City provides the network and its patients with a vital new access point for high-quality acute care services between Pittsburgh and Erie, with plans to further expand and enhance those services for residents of Mercer County and the surrounding region.
AHN plans to invest more than $40 million over the next decade to strengthen AHN Grove City’s clinical programs, technological capabilities and physical infrastructure. The network will add or enhance a host of clinical services at the hospital including:
• Primary care
• Behavioral health
• General surgery
AHN also plans to expand on-site telehealth capabilities to include tele-dermatology, tele-stroke and autoimmune consultations, among other specialties.
One of the first big investments being made at AHN Grove City is an upgrade of the hospital’s information technology infrastructure, including installation of the Epic electronic health record system at both the main campus and affiliated satellite facilities throughout the community. AHN is the largest health care network in western Pennsylvania with a singular integrated electronic health record across its many sites of care.
Through the affiliation, a new independent Grove City Health Care Foundation has also been established with an initial endowment of approximately $30 million that will be spent on local health and wellness initiatives.
