Forbes Hospital Celebrates 35 Years of Service to Pittsburgh’s Eastern Suburbs

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Monroeville, PA – Forbes Hospital this month is celebrating its 35th anniversary as a vital healthcare resource for the people of Monroeville and its adjacent communities in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh.  
 
Since opening its doors in 1978, Forbes has grown steadily in both the scope and sophistication of its services to meet the evolving and expanding needs of the community.   
 
Over the past few years alone, the hospital has opened state-of-the-art, one-stop-shop centers for wound care and breast care, added advanced robotic surgery capabilities and opened a comprehensive cardiovascular surgery program that has been lauded by national ratings groups for its high quality outcomes.
 
This past August,  Forbes received state accreditation to become Pittsburgh’s only trauma center located outside of the city and one of just 31 such centers in the entire state.  
 
“Some of the changes that are coming to fruition now have been in the works for over 10 years, and with the help of Highmark and the leadership of Allegheny Health Network, we have   built an incredibly strong and invaluable asset for this community,” said Mark Rubino, MD, Forbes Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer. 
 
Currently a 350 bed facility, Forbes and its team of 500 affiliated physicians treats 15,000 inpatients, performs 12,000 surgeries and cares for nearly 50,000 emergency department patients annually. 
 
As the eastern suburbs only maternity hospital, more than a thousand babies are born at Forbes each year and approximately 70 special care babies are cared for in the hospital’s Level 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. 
 
“We are and always will be the only full-service hospital in Monroeville. We offer high quality, comprehensive healthcare services so that our patients can be treated in the comfort and convenience of their home community rather than being transported to a downtown hospital,” said Forbes President and CEO Reese Jackson. “The future of Forbes has never been brighter.”  
 
The hospital now provides a complete array of surgical, medical, rehabilitative and emergency care. In addition, it offers a complete spectrum of specialty services such as cardiology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, oncology, stroke care, endocrinology, behavioral health, and obstetrics.
