The nearly 300,000-square-foot facility is slated to open in 2027.

By HFT Staff

Allegheny Health Network (AHN) and Highmark Health announced plans to build a new full-service, all-private-room hospital in Washington County to replace Canonsburg Hospital. 

The new approximately 300,000-square-foot facility will have 50 to 100 beds and will be built on AHN Canonsburg's existing Medical Boulevard campus in North Strabane, representing another significant milestone in the network's strategy to bring more comprehensive care closer to home for residents in Washington County and the nearby communities of southern Allegheny County. 

Construction of AHN's new Canonsburg facility is expected to begin in 2024, pending all necessary approvals, and will open in 2027. AHN will also develop the new clinical campus to accommodate additional planned facilities, including a medical office building and a potential future cancer center. The total investment to transform the medical campus is approximately $232 million. 

AHN Canonsburg was established in 1904 and has operated at the current Medical Boulevard location since 1983. 

The new hospital will provide an array of advanced clinical services, including primary, emergency and critical care; state-of-the-art surgical capabilities; advanced cardiac, orthopedic and neurosurgical care; and various multi-disciplinary programs including women's health. The facility's clinical programs and medical staff will be aligned with AHN's leading Institutes across all disciplines, further expanding the reach of the network's nationally recognized clinical expertise. 

The new AHN Canonsburg Hospital is expected to create hundreds of additional permanent health care jobs when fully operational, as well as hundreds of construction jobs. Currently, there are approximately 400 employees at AHN Canonsburg, all of whom will be tracked to the same roles at the new facility. 

AHN officials expect to begin discussions with local municipal leaders and agencies to seek approvals for the construction plans in the coming days and weeks.
