Allegheny Health Network has announced two additions to its services in Monroeville with the opening of its trauma center at Forbes Regional Hospital and the opening later this month of a new surgery center.
The surgery center, which will feature four large operating rooms and three additional rooms for endoscopy procedures, will be located in the former Syms clothing store at 4121 Monroeville Blvd.
Forbes Regional, meanwhile, marked the official opening of its Level II trauma center this week, where seriously injured patients may be treated without having to be transported into the city. It is now the only trauma program in Pittsburgh's eastern suburbs.
