Not All Hospitals Are Created Equal

US News logo

There’s a lot of talk these days about health systems building what they call “micro” or “neighborhood hospitals” miles away from their main facilities in Pittsburgh. While they may call themselves hospitals, in the final analysis, not all hospitals are created equal. When choosing where to go for care, are you asking if they have:

  • Multiple Operating Rooms for Emergency and Elective Surgery
  • Fully Accredited Heart and Vascular Center
  • Fellowship-Trained Heart and Vascular Surgeons
  • Specialty Inpatient Units
  • Designated Center for Most Severe Heart Attacks (STEMI)
  • Intensive Care Unit for Critically Ill Patients
  • Designated Primary Stroke Center

Excela Health offers a spectrum of care that is complete, connected and convenient for residents of Westmoreland County. We know that all hospitals aren’t created equal and so should you.

In A Medical Emergency Minutes Matter

Choose an emergency department with a fully staffed care team including emergency medicine specialists who are supported by a full service hospital.

Excela Health's three hospitals are the only designated primary stroke centers in Westmoreland County and the county's only STEMI receiving centers for the severest heart attack patients. And when you need it, our Heart and Vascular Center at Excela Westmoreland hospital is backed by a full service interventional cardiology program including cardiothoracic surgery.

The union of our three hospitals, serving as the core of Excela Health, cemented our purpose as the leading health care provider in Westmoreland County and is a reflection of a shared philosophy that has become our mission: To improve the health and well-being of every life we touch.

Each of our hospitals boasts a proud heritage, collectively numbering more than 300 years strong, of serving their communities. Together, we now serve a population approaching 420,000 individuals in 97 zip codes throughout Westmoreland County and parts of Fayette and Indiana Counties, building bridges along the way.

We look forward to the continuation of building healthy bridges by offering services and programs within our hospitals and in community settings that meet your needs today … and in the future.

As the nation celebrates the contributions hospitals make to the betterment of our society. On behalf of our Board of Trustees and executive team, As CEO of Excela health I want to thank our employees for the service you provide to our organization and to the patients who turn to us for care.
