Allegheny Health Network (AHN) expanded their health services today by debuting their newest health practice facility.

AHN St. Vincent hospital cut the ribbon at their newest location in Yorktown Center at West 12th St.

The new outpatient behavioral health practice is designed to focus on patient's mental health.

This newest expansion is designed to significantly improve their system's behavior and mental health services for the Erie community.

"We are definitely seeing a huge uptick in need for mental health services in this community," said Dr. Chris Clark, AHN St. Vincent President. "There is a connection to what is going on in society, in the economy, the pandemic. So, we have stepped forward to provide access for behavior mental health from this region."

AHN specializes in treating adults who experience difficult emotions with troubling diagnoses, such as depression, anxiety, stress, OCD, and panic disorders.
