Move Provides More Options for Patients and Addresses Concerns of Increased Bridge Traffic
Moon Township, PA, (February 22, 2012) – Heritage Valley Health System has expanded health care services in the western Allegheny County neighborhoods by opening a Heritage Valley ConvenientCare location in Moon Township at 935 Thorn Run Road. ConvenientCare is a walk-in clinic, open 7 days a week with extended hours providing treatment for minor illness and injuries by a staff of Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners.
The ConvenientCare in Heritage Valley Moon Township will complement other services at the Thorn Run location including diagnostic imaging, lab draw services, Nutrition Counseling and Diabetes Education, Signature Rehab outpatient rehabilitation services, an office location for the Heritage Valley Heart & Vascular Center (Philip D. Nicol, M.D.), and the Heritage Valley Medical Group offices of Fouad Bassilios, M.D. and Cherrington Medical Associates (Eileen Neely, M.D. and Stephen Osmanski, M.D.). These services aim to bring more convenience to people living and working in and around the communities of Moon Township and Coraopolis.
“As a community health system we’re always looking for new ways to meet the needs of people seeking health care services in the communities we serve,” said Norm Mitry, president and CEO, Heritage Valley Health System. “With the impending closure of the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge and the impact it will have on traffic patterns, we want to ensure that the community’s access to important health care services is not disrupted.”
Heritage Valley has a number of other satellite locations in Monaca, Hopewell, Center Township and Robinson Township that will meet the needs of people living and working in the airport corridor. In addition to the new Moon ConvenientCare, Heritage Valley has five other walk-in clinics, including the Heritage Valley ConvenientCare located inside the Monaca Walmart on 3942 Brodhead Road (The Clinic at Walmart). Heritage Valley also has diagnostic imaging and lab draw locations in:
- Hopewell Township, 5000 Industrial Boulevard;
- Center Township at Heritage Valley’s Women’s Health Center, 200 Pleasant Drive;
- Robinson Township at Heritage Valley’s Open MRI location, 1928 Park Manor Boulevard in Robinson Town Centre; and
- Hopewell Township, 2032 Brodhead Road (lab draw only)
“In addition to these satellite services, Heritage Valley partners with more than 425 primary and specialty care physicians with offices spread throughout the communities we serve, including 14 offices in the airport corridor” added Mr. Mitry. “Regardless of the health care need, Heritage Valley can offer a solution.”
