For an area known for strip malls, the new kid on the block is a medical mall.
A multi-million dollar upgrade to Excela Health’s Frick Hospital in Mount Pleasant is an economic boost to southern Westmoreland and northern Fayette Counties.
It used to be everyone got their medical care at or near a hospital in the city. Now, medical malls are springing up all over the region to bring medical care closer to the community with convenient locations, free parking, and one-stop-shopping.
A one-stop shop medical mall is coming to the North Hills. Highmark announced on Thursday that it will construct an all-purpose medical facility off Perry Highway in Wexford.
