Date:12/13/2012

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Highmark Inc. announced today the construction of a medical mall at 12311 Perry Highway in Wexford, Pa. When completed in 2014, the 174,000-square-foot facility, which will be an integral part of Highmark's growing integrated delivery system and will provide patients with accessible, high-quality health care in Pittsburgh's northern communities.
