Ligonier YMCA issue in the Pittsburgh Business Times

A match made in heaven has hit a rough patch, causing a setback for a hospital system that has made community wellness and medical cost control a priority.
Ligonier Valley YMCA will appeal a Ligonier Borough decision to deny a zoning change that would’ve allowed a 15,000-square-foot addition to its facility. The addition would’ve been shared with Greensburg-basedExcela Health, allowing the hospital to open doctors’ offices at the facility while offering blood work, medical imaging and other services as part of a larger continuum of community wellness and medicine.
