SmartHealth outpatient center moves

 

July 26, 2005



Mercy's SmartHealth Green Tree Outpatient Center has moved to a new, more spacious location.  The center, which opened five years ago this August at its former address, 100 Fleet St ., has moved across the Parkway West to the former Highmark building at 969 Greentree Rd.

“The need to increase the amount of space we occupied from 7,000 to 15,000 square feet quickly became evident,” stated Betsy Yetiskul, director of ambulatory services, Pittsburgh Mercy Health System.  “During the five years we were located on Fleet Street, we saw the demand for services increase, and Mercy expanded its services accordingly. We saw this move as an opportunity to centralize Mercy's outpatient testing services with the physician practices. Having all of these services in one location is of great convenience to the public.”

The SmartHealth Green Tree Outpatient Center provides the following outpatient services: radiology/x-rays; laboratory testing; EKGs; stress tests with nuclear imaging; stress tests; stress echocardiograms; echocardiograms; peripheral vascular ultrasound, including venous, arterial and carotid; obstetrical/gynecological ultrasounds; and specialized rehabilitation services including physical, occupational, speech, and massage therapies.  In addition, the center includes an on-site community education room to support Mercy-sponsored community health education programs.

The hours of operation for Mercy Outpatient Testing on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  On Wednesday and Thursday hours are from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Saturday hours are 8 a.m. to noon.

The hours of operation for the Mercy Rehabilitation Services, specifically physical, occupational, and speech therapies, are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Massage therapy is also available by appointment only.

Among the physician practices who have offices at the SmartHealth Green Tree Outpatient Center: Greater Pittsburgh Ob/Gyn, Pittsburgh Internal Medicine Associates, Mercy Orthopedic Associates, and the Pittsburgh Heart Group.  Physician office hours vary by practice.

A public open house is being planned for late summer or early fall.
