Union Finely Messenger: New Outpatient Care Center Coming to Peters Township - by Paul Chasko

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

There seems to be a change in thinking in the way major medical systems are planning future facilities. Instead of having most of their facilities in the big city hospital (Pittsburgh for instance) they seem to be favoring outpatient facilities in the suburbs as the wave of the future. 


Some of the concepts being considered are rather unique. Imagine coming in to see your PCP, and he refers you to a specialist in the same building and being able to get your lab work and prescriptions filled just down the hall. They’re billing it as a one-stop medical facility right here in the South Hills. Combine that with an outpatient surgical service, radiation oncology, medical oncology, diagnostic imaging, pediatrics and orthopedic services and you may avoid tedious trips into the city. The plans even include a 750 square foot conference room that may be available to the community as well.
