Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital
532 West Pittsburgh Street, Greensburg
Medical professionals at hospitals have their own rules for reporting and confidentiality. Usually, law enforcement is called when a rape is reported but you do not have to speak to the police. Victims of sexual violence are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon as possible to treat physical injuries, preserve evidence for a criminal complaint, and have a rape kit performed. A medical advocate from the Blackburn Center is available to be with you throughout the entire process. If the hospital has not called an advocate, please request that they do so.
