The Pittsburgh Business Times wrote a piece celebrating the opening of Allegheny Health Network’s (AHN), West Penn Hospital NICU. The 23-bed unit includes state-of-the-art technology plus private rooms that allow families to live with their babies during their stay, including three twin baby units. The space also includes a lounge, kitchen and other amenity spaces that will serve the parents and 1,000-plus infants the NICU provides specialty care for each year.
“We are thrilled to open this amazing new facility that will further expand and enhance our ability to (help children) for current and future generations,” Cynthia Hundorfean, president and CEO of AHN told the Business Times.
This investment positions West Penn Hospital’s NICU as one of the most capable within the AHN system as it serves as the region’s largest referral center for infants who require neonatal care.
