PITTSBURGH (AP) - Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh plans to unveil a 48-bed critical care unit as part of a $26 million makeover.

The hospital is the flagship of the Allegheny Health Network, the hospital chain owned by Pittsburgh-based Highmark Inc., the Pittsburgh region’s dominant health insurance company.

The hospital network is the second-largest in western Pennsylvania, behind the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, which also offers its own health insurance.

The unit will serve cardiovascular patients and is part of a move to modernize the hospital network’s flagship facility.

A Thursday afternoon news conference was scheduled to provide more details.
