Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, March 3, 2009

West Penn Allegheny Health System released quarterly results showing operating losses of $9.1 million and a net loss of $5.6 million for the quarter ending Dec. 31. Despite a 2% increase in acute patient admissions across the system in the second half of 2008, "we're starting to see quite a bit of softening in volume," president and CEO Christopher Olivia  told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "That's in concert with what a lot of other health systems are recognizing."
