Community Highlights: Integrated Delivery Network
Highmark Health's integrated delivery network, led by its parent company Allegheny Health Network (AHN) in western Pennsylvania, includes several diverse urban and rural community institutions including eight hospitals that provide world-class care in the comfort of neighborhood settings. Most of the AHN hospitals have been an important part of the fabric of the communities they serve for over 100 years, maintaining a strong tradition of giving back.
The focus of AHN's 2014 community giving was born from the health and wellness needs identified through AHN’s annual community health needs assessment. Resulting from the clinical priorities identified by our partners and community stakeholders, AHN devoted a majority of its community giving and resources throughout the year to the prevention, treatment and awareness of diabetes. In addition, AHN supported educational conferences on timely issues such as asthma and mental health. And all of AHN's hospitals embraced direct outreach into the community as a high priority by supporting and conducting free health fairs and screening opportunities in regions from Erie, Pa. to Canonsburg, Pa.
