Pediatric Care, Closer to Home

South Hills families also have access to exceptional pediatric specialty care, closer to home at UPMC Children’s Specialty Care Center Washington. The center opened in fall 2020 and houses highly skilled specialists who provide outpatient pediatric care and services, such as diagnostic evaluations and follow-up care. And, in the evenings, UPMC Children’s Express Care at Washington Hospital is open in the same suite.

Along with these two additions to the neighborhood, caregivers have even more local pediatric options.
