AHN Wexford celebrates first birthday

Ford Dischinger and a few of his friends partied with Allegheny Health Network Wexford Hospital Friday, helping the hospital celebrate one year of service. Ford was the first baby boy born in the hospital, and his peers were some of the 1,200 babies born there since it opened one year ago Friday.

The hospital, a160-bed, full-service facility, serves northern Allegheny County and the adjacent communities of Butler, Beaver, Lawrence and Mercer counties.

Celebrations this week included a series of recognition events for patients, clinicians, caregivers and staff.
