West Penn Allegheny Health System Announces Recruitment of Leading Burn Specialists
Date:1/3/2009

The new facility is expected to open in the first quarter of 2009 adjacent to the Burn Center on the hospital's second floor of West Penn Hospital, and will complement and extend the Burn Center's capabilities.

"We are grateful to U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. for their work in securing this grant," Ms. Gideon said.

The new outpatient center will provide follow-up care to patients with serious burns to minor burns, serving all patient populations from infant to adult.

It will include a large waiting area, four exam rooms and a designated area for compression garment fitting and physical and occupational therapy. The center will be staffed with physicians, nurses and support staff who offer years of experience and can provide a continuum of care.

"We have long wanted to offer a full continuum of care to burn patients, providing care for our patients throughout their healing processes," said Dr. Aballay. "The creation of the new outpatient center is a dream come true for all of us at the Burn Center."

The Western Pennsylvania Hospital is an academic medical center with two hospital campuses that serve Pittsburgh and the surrounding five-state area: The Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh and The Western Pennsylvania Hospital -- Forbes Regional Campus in Monroeville.

The Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh is the first hospital in Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania to be awarded Magnet recognition status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center in 2006. This prestigious 4-year designation recognizes excellence in nursing.

Part of West Penn Allegheny Health System, West Penn Hospital is a leader in patient care, education, and research, and serves as the clinical campus for Temple University School of Medicine.
