Who We Are

Serving the residents of Pittsburgh’s western suburbs, Heritage Valley Kennedy – formerly Ohio Valley Hospital (OVH) – is a 124-bed not-for-profit hospital in Kennedy Township.

First established in the 1890s as a place to treat railroad workers, Heritage Valley Kennedy now features a wide range of medical and surgical services. These include acute inpatient care, geriatric and outpatient psychiatry, orthopedics, and acute rehabilitation services. We also offer personal care and independent living for seniors, as well as dementia and Alzheimer’s care.

Heritage Valley Kennedy continues to evolve with the implementation of state-of-the-art medical technology, a first-rate medical staff, offering a more personal patient experience, and a new, modern look. Heritage Valley Kennedy accredited by The Joint Commission.

Our facilities also serve as a training center for future health care professionals. The Ohio Valley School of Nursing (OVHSON) offers a 20-month RN diploma program, fully accredited by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing (PASBON), the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, and the Department of Education.

The Ohio Valley Hospital School of Radiography (OVHSOR) partners with La Roche College for our Radiography Program. This prestigious and dual effort offers a 24-month certificate in Radiologic Technology from OVHSOR and an Associate Degree in Health Science with a concentration in Radiologic Technology from La Roche University.

As an independent community hospital, we treat our patients like family –- compassionately, close to home, and with a dedication to clinical excellence.
