Dear Mon Valley Health Care Provider:
The members of the Working Group on Health of the Mon Valley Providers Council are happy to present the Mon Valley Directory of Health Care Services. The Directory provides a listing of a wide variety of non profit and public health care providers serving the 37 Mon Valley communities in Allegheny County. Each listing includes contact information as well as a brief description of services provided.
It is our hope that you will use this resource to make health care services more accessible to your consumers. Our Working Group will also utilize this information to identify and address gaps in health care services within these communities.
We recognize that this list is not exhaustive and have included information to update existing entries or add new ones, as that information becomes available. Rather than republish the entire Directory, we have created a format that will allow us to simply print updated entries without disrupting the flow of the entire document. You may simply insert the updates into your bound copy using a three ring binder. Our goal is to keep the Directory as current as possible.
On behalf of the Working Group on Health, we would like to thank the members of the Mon Valley Providers Council for their support and resources to bring this Directory to publication. We would like to thank Sue Kerr for her tireless efforts to compile and format the information, draft the Directory and oversee the final publication. Furthermore, we thank Melissa Blaszczyk who compiled the initial information for the Directory and staffed the early development process.
We welcome your comments and suggestions toward improving the Directory. We also welcome any suggestions regarding gaps in health care services that the Working Group on Health could address. Our Group meets monthly and we encourage you to join us. For more information, call the Mon Valley Providers Council at (412) 829-7112.
