Allegheny Health Network is comprised of eight hospitals, including Jefferson Hospital (formerly Jefferson Regional Medical Center) and Saint Vincent Hospital (formerly Saint Vincent Health System), which join Allegheny General Hospital, Allegheny Valley Hospital, Canonsburg Hospital, Forbes Hospital, and West Penn Hospital (formerly united under the West Penn Allegheny Health System umbrella).  As a combined entity serving the greater western Pennsylvania region, the organization now provides direct access to over 2000 physicians and information about its comprehensive services through the new website, available at ahn.org.   

AHN.org features five key sections that help patients, family members, and network staff members quickly locate the information they're most interested in.  After using advanced research methodologies and practices, 'Find a Doctor,' 'Request an Appointment,' 'Specialties & Services,' 'Patients & Visitors,' and 'Our Locations' were determined by the network as being the most crucial to the public and patients across the board. 

A comprehensive physician database backs the site's 'Find a Doctor' section and enables users to search for physicians by condition/specialty, last name, and location. In 2011, the WPAHS website underwent a massive redesign effort which earned it the silver medal award for Best Doctor Directory at the eHealthcare Leadership Awards in 2012. The new Allegheny Health Network 'Find a Doctor' section utilizes the award-winning technology originally developed for WPAHS.

Each of Allegheny Health Network's six industry-leading institutes (Cancer, Cardiovascular, Neuroscience, Orthopedic, Transplant, and Women's Health) are represented within the site's  'Specialties & Services' section and were championed by leading institute physicians. This section identifies every specialty and service offered within the network and functions as an educational resource for all users.

The 'Request an Appointment' section provides patients with a convenient point of contact, linking patients and network administrative departments and the 'Patients & Visitors' section informs patients and their family members of logistic and safety information.

Finally, the 'Our Locations' section not only unites all seven hospitals under one roof, but also features a dynamic filtering map that is database driven, ensuring that users are directed to the most recent information possible.

Named as one of the country's best healthcare providers by U.S. News and World Report, Allegheny Health Network is a system of eight hospitals and over 200 primary and specialty-care practices throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
