Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Forbes Hospice temporarily relocating to Bloomfield site

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

By Luis Fabregas

Forbes Hospice temporarily will relocate to Bloomfield from Oakland in June, West Penn Allegheny Health System officials said yesterday.

The relocation stems from the sale of The Residence on Fifth building to Carnegie Mellon University. The sale, which should be completed by the end of May, also led to the closing of an assisted living facility in the building.

Forbes Hospice will be located in wing T8 of the West Penn Hospital Campus, a unit that has 12 private patient rooms, the same number as the current hospice location.

Families will continue to have access to the same amenities, including a living room, kitchen and meditation room. Officials have not selected a permanent location.

Family members will receive complimentary parking in West Penn Hospital's parking complex at Liberty and South Millvale avenues.

Ken Walters, a Carnegie Mellon spokesman, said preliminary plans call for using the property at 4700 Fifth Ave. for apartments for 93 resident students. The university leases space for about 750 students in the area near Residence on Fifth. That includes Fairfax Apartments and Webster Hall, Walters said.

Officials of the assisted living facility did not return a call for comment Wednesday
