Over the past two decades, we’ve ushered in a new era of health care — transforming from a single hospital to a $17 billion integrated health enterprise committed to both its patients and its Pennsylvania roots.
And we know the ideas created within our walls grow beyond them — what drives Pittsburgh will someday drive the world.
Today we build.
We’re investing $2 billion over the next five years to advance our patient care, our hospitals, and our science. We’re creating new specialty hospitals that will offer next-generation treatments in patient-focused, technology-enhanced settings unique to health care.
The all-new UPMC Hillman Cancer Hospital, UPMC Heart and Transplant Hospital, and UPMC Vision and Rehabilitation at UPMC Mercy will complement the already advanced specialty care at our Magee-Womens Hospital, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. In doing this, we’re raising the bar.
We’re not just building halls of medicine — we’re creating whole new ways of delivering patient care.

Learn More About Our Vision
Our new specialty hospitals will bring out the best in UPMC, providing sharply focused treatment and collaboration from some of the world’s top clinicians. And that means better care for you.
The New UPMC Heart and Transplant Hospital at UPMC Presbyterian
The newly specialized facility will span 940,000 square feet and 15 stories. It will include 620 state-of-the-art private patient rooms to enhance patient experiences. This new hub in Oakland will provide the highest caliber cardiac and organ transplantation procedures available anywhere in the world.
The New UPMC Hillman Cancer Hospital at UPMC Shadyside
We will renovate and expand UPMC Shadyside to create a world-class destination for cancer care, anchoring one of the largest cancer networks in the country.
The new UPMC Hillman Cancer Hospital will continue providing advanced care and an expertise in rare cancers, including access to clinical trials and the latest technology. This new home will make it even easier for our researchers and clinicians to work side by side to bring leading-edge cancer treatment to patients.
UPMC Vision and Rehabilitation at UPMC Mercy
UPMC Vision and Rehabilitation at UPMC Mercy is expected to open in 2020 and offer advanced clinical vision care. Clinicians and researchers at the new hospital will pursue promising new research for vision restoration and diseases of the eye and offer technology-assisted rehabilitation services that restore mobility for patients with wide-ranging physical and cognitive challenges.
UPMC Imagines the Patient Room of the Future
Find out how UPMC envisions the patient room of the future — a cutting-edge, interactive space that allows for greater comfort, care, and collaboration.
Each of our six specialty hospitals will include superior quality, private patient rooms. With this expansion, there will be no increase in the number of beds, but rather a redistribution of beds to our new specialty hospitals. We will, however, have the ability to expand capacity as our innovative programs continue to attract national and global referrals.

We operate 40 hospitals and 800 doctors’ offices and outpatient centers, with locations throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, West Virginia, and internationally.
