Healthy Lives, Healthy Community
Deutschtown is home to high quality healthcare, right here in our community. Flagship Allegheny General Hospital, at North and Cedar Avenues, ranks nationally in the top 25 medical centers by U.S. News and World Report. The hospital is equipped with life-saving emergency services, and is lauded for its contributions to important areas of medicine such as cardiac health. AGH partners with the EACC through outreach programs such as free health screenings, free children’s bike helmets, and support for our East Ohio Street businesses. Numerous doctors have their professional offices adjacent to the hospital, allowing for easy access to various healthcare providers.
Right in the heart of Deutschtown at Middle and Suismon Streets sits the clean-lined, newly renovated North Side Christian Health Center. Dedicated to helping those seeking routine services such as checkups, screenings and immunizations, and providing care for the community’s most vulnerable, this clinic is a testament to neighbors helping neighbors. NCHC also provides advocacy services for the underinsured or uninsured.
Quality mental health services are available through the comprehensive Mercy Behavioral Health, a caring group of licensed professionals with Deutschtown offices. Referral partnerships with schools and hospitals help patients find the counseling and mental health services they need, be it crisis assistance, family counseling, or recovery.
