Saint Vincent Hospital: Transforming Health Care

It’s a new day at Saint Vincent Hospital. A time of transformation.

With new leadership at the helm and significant expansion in process — Saint Vincent is poised not only to continue its long legacy of care and commitment to the Erie region but to build upon it.

As a result of Highmark’s $115 million investment in Saint Vincent, a multi-phased capital investment plan is in place, with the goal of enhancing capabilities, expanding capacity to meet the evolving health needs of the community and facilitating a patient-centered care model focused on quality, convenience and service excellence.

First, the Emergency Department is being expanded to more efficiently accommodate the 65,000 patients who seek emergency care at Saint Vincent every year.

The operating room suite will feature four new, state-of-the-art rooms and allow for future expansion and upgrades as needed. The rooms are being constructed to accommodate the advanced surgical technologies Saint Vincent provides, including its Mako® robotic system for minimally invasive hip and knee replacement and its da Vinci minimally invasive robotic surgical system.

Saint Vincent also is engaging the community in the hospital’s transformation plan by seeking input on ways to improve the overall patient experience, create efficiencies, and even enhance the hospital’s aesthetics, such as paint colors, wall décor and the style of seating chosen for the Emergency Department waiting areas.
