NORTH HILLS BANKING CENTER OPENS

 PITTSBURGH, Nov. 21 ~PRNewswire~ -- Banking customers throughout the growing North Hills area of Pittsburgh can now enjoy a complete array of banking services in one location, as Pittsburgh National Bank opens its North Hills Banking Center on McKnight Road.
 Pittsburgh National, a PNC Bank, marked the occasion with a grand opening celebration -- and "grand" is no exaggeration in describing the new center's capabilities, according to James C. Rooks, the bank's North Allegheny regional executive.
 "We've assembled a top team of customer-oriented professionals to meet all banking needs of our North Hills neighbors," said Rooks. "From the most routine to the most specialized form of money management, we're here to accommodate our customers."
 Located at McIntyre Square, near the intersection of McKnight and Peebles roads, the North Hills Banking Center brings the full weight of PNC's nearly $50 billion organization -- its expertise, financial products and services, and overall strength and stability -- and delivers it in a neighborhood setting.
 The Pittsburgh-based architectural firm of Johnson~Schmidt and Associates designed the center, with Dick Enterprises of Pittsburgh serving as general contractors.
 Pittsburgh National developed the regional banking center concept and brought it to reality when the bank opened its Robinson Town Banking Centre near the Pittsburgh International Airport in July 1990.
 The North Hills Banking Center operates on the same principle, acting as a regional hub for 24 branch offices, and offering the following services:
 -- Investment Management and Trust services.
 -- Securities offered through PNC Securities Corp.
 -- Mutual funds, tax-deferred annuities and unit investment trusts made available through ProVest(A).
 -- Select Advantage Banking.
 -- Mortgage banking.
 -- Small business and commercial banking services.
 -- All products and services available at typical bank offices, including four new "MAC Check" automatic teller machines -- state-of- the-art ATMs that can cash checks to the penny.
 "Prior to development of these regional banking centers, we had to refer our customers from the 24 offices in this region to the bank's headquarters in downtown Pittsburgh for many of these services," Rooks explained. "Our major competitors still have to refer to their headquarters, while the smaller banks can't offer the same breadth or depth of services and products as Pittsburgh National. The Banking Center makes us unique.
 "With the time limitations placed on people and their demands for convenience and service, Pittsburgh National's focus on customer service made the regional banking concept logical and inevitable," he said.
 "We're ready to serve the needs of people in a wide geographic area -- from Fox Chapel to Butler, from New Kensington to West View," added Linda Morris, manager of the new facility.
 "It's exciting to be one of the few suburban facilities to house business, consumer, private and trust banking under one roof -- in a setting customized to meet the changing needs of the marketplace," she said.
 "But it all comes down to a guiding philosophy at Pittsburgh National -- one that the North Hills Banking Center meets in a fresh and exciting way -- meeting the customer's needs," said Morris. "It's really that simple."
 Pittsburgh National Bank's parent company, PNC Financial Corp (NYSE: PNC), is headquartered in Pittsburgh and is the nation's 13th-largest bank holding company, with assets of $46.6 billion.
