Safety at UPMC During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people with other conditions may need care. We are offering medically necessary procedures and other treatment in the coming weeks to ensure these people get the care they need.

As we begin to phase this medically necessary care back in, we will take every precaution to keep all patients, staff, and community members safe. Some of our safety measures include: 

  • Screening for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure.
  • Ensuring our staff has enough personal protective equipment.
  • Restricting visitors and volunteers.
  • Requiring all patients, staff, and essential guests wear facemasks in public areas.
  • Rigorous cleaning with hospital-based disinfectants.

Contact your doctor to discuss your medical situation and whether you may need an procedure or treatment at one of our facilities.
