Highmark breaks ground on new medical mall in Wexford
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.

"Today's announcement is an important milestone in our efforts to transform the delivery of health care in Western Pennsylvania," said William Winkenwerder, M.D., Highmark's president and CEO. "With a focus on a better patient experience, the medical mall will merge traditional medical services with prevention."

The medical mall will serve as a place where all of a patient's health care needs can be delivered in one location. Services planned at the facility include medical and radiation oncology, basic and advanced imaging, physical and occupational therapy, a women's care center, a lab and pharmacy, primary and specialty care, pediatrics, as well as a drop-off child care center, a resource library, community rooms and a demonstration kitchen.

"A combination of marketplace forces and health care reform is forcing everyone in the health care system to change the way we do business," said Dr. Winkenwerder. "In line with these changes and our commitment to our members, we are building a new integrated health care system – a system that will provide more choice for consumers and preserve competition to help control health care costs."

Recognizing that today's patient leads a very busy lifestyle, the mall helps to meet consumer demands for more convenient, community-based health care services. Such services can be provided more cost effectively in an outpatient setting than in a more traditional hospital environment.

Dr. Winkenwerder added that the medical mall will provide a foundation for better patient outcomes by encouraging more co
