Regarded as the leading source in the U.S. for construction-related news, Engineering News-Record (ENR) MidAtlantic has awarded AHN Wexford Hospital and its onsite parking garage as the 2022 ‘best project in health care.’ Gilbane/Massaro served as the project’s contractor, and HKS Architects & IKM Incorporated as the architects.
Allegheny Health Network’s (AHN) newest, full-service hospital was reviewed alongside more than 60 projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, according to ENR, and was evaluated based on the ability of project teams to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety and construction, and design quality. ENR MidAtlantic ‘best project’ winners were featured in the October issue of the magazine.
“Since the opening of the hospital just over one year ago, AHN Wexford’s highly skilled caregivers and staff have provided world-class care to patients in the setting of this beautiful, state-of-the-art facility,” said Allan Klapper, MD, president, AHN Wexford Hospital. “We are immensely grateful to our design and construction partners who, despite having faced a myriad of challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic as the hospital was being built, remained committed to delivering a best-in-class hospital for this community without any delay.”
Located along U.S. Route 19 in Pine Township, AHN Wexford Hospital opened its doors to patients last fall. The all-private, 160-bed hospital brings a full range of high-quality, innovative health care services to patients throughout the growing northern region of Allegheny County as well as adjacent communities of Butler, Beaver, Lawrence and Mercer counties.
