We offer high quality, specialized services to meet the needs of patients throughout the tri-state area. Our capabilities include:

- State-of-the-art diagnostic imaging
- Lupus Center of Excellence
- Neuroscience Institute
- Advanced Primary Stroke Center

Over the years, West Penn has earned regional and national recognition for excellence in bariatric surgery, bone marrow and cell transplantation, burn care, cardiac care, nursing, women’s and infant’s care, and more.
One of the main factors contributing to our exception care is our focus on elevating the standards and practices of professional nursing. In fact, West Penn was the first hospital in Pittsburgh – and western Pennsylvania – to achieve Magnet® Recognition (2006) and the first to achieve Magnet re-designation (2012), then again for a third time in 2017 from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). West Penn Hospital is very proud to be among the 8% of U.S. hospitals that have achieved the gold standard in nursing excellence.
Looking to the future, West Penn Hospital will continue to grow and enhance our services. We are expanding our inpatient facilities while also developing a new ambulatory care building. All of our new buildings will be environmentally sustainable, using designs that blend in with our neighborhood.
