Conemaugh Physician Group recently added Harold Partsch, CRNP to its pain and neurology teams. Partsch will see patients at Conemaugh East Hills Outpatient Center in the pain clinic, and will assist with Conemaugh’s Concussion Clinic.
“I enjoy helping patients,” says Partsch. “There are various options for pain management without the use of narcotics. We can help patients lead productive and fulfilling lives through proper treatment.” In addition to pain management, Partsch has experience assisting Penn State University athletes who suffered from concussion.
Originally from Johnstown, Partsch is excited to return to Conemaugh’s team. After earning his nursing degree from Mount Aloysius College, Partsch worked as a Registered Nurse in Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit. He continued his career in North Carolina as an RN for telemetry, medical intermediate unit, and gastroenterology. He then returned to school and earned his Masters of Nursing degree from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania.
When not seeing patients, Partsch enjoys helping on the family farm, working outside, and reading.

Five Wishes supports values-based conversations between clinicians, patients, and families about what matters to you most. Five Wishes is the only advance directive that invites people to consider and identify what brings them comfort, how they want to be treated, and what they want their loved ones and others to know.

Allegheny Health Network (AHN) announced today that one of its top clinical leaders will take the helm at a new full-service hospital it plans to open in Pine Township in 2021. Allan Klapper, MD, an obstetrician and gynecologist who currently serves as chair of AHN’s Women’s & Children’s Institute, has been appointed as president of the new 160-bed facility that will be integrated with AHN’s existing Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion. AHN received approval on its plans this week from the Pine Township Board of Supervisors and expects to break ground on the hospital this summer.
Like the Health + Wellness Pavilion, AHN’s Wexford Hospital will serve an area with a population of more than 215,000 people. The hospital will offer a wide array of clinical services, including many that community residents are currently traveling into Pittsburgh to receive. The facility will complement the network’s many outpatient services in the market, including those at the Pavilion, AHN’s nearby Pediatric Orthopaedic Institute, and other facilities and physician offices.
“The appointment of Dr. Klapper to this important role is another example of AHN’s commitment to cultivating and empowering strong physician leaders to drive our patient-centered mission and vision,” said Cynthia Hundorfean, AHN President and CEO. [Read more…]
