Specialized Care for Seniors

At UPMC, our doctors understand that older adults face unique health challenges and are specially trained to focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of multiple health issues often experienced by older adults. We aim to help seniors maintain independence and enhance the quality of their lives.

And if you become ill, you can take comfort knowing that you will receive focused, coordinated care that improves your chances of a quicker, more complete recovery – because your doctor knows you, understands your full medical history, and is backed with the state-of-the-art medical resources of UPMC.
