About UPMC East

Message from Mark Sevco, President, UPMC East

Dear Friends,

We’ve been given the rare privilege of doing something few people have ever had the chance to do: create a new hospital from the ground up. The result is UPMC East, the hospital of tomorrow, today.

Here, you’ll see the best possible health care practices and medical technology in action. Our state-of-the-art environment and sophisticated services place us at the forefront of community hospitals in the nation.

Every detail of UPMC East is designed to ensure that your experience as our patient or guest exceeds your every expectation. Great thought and planning went into all we do to welcome you fully, provide for your safety, and deliver medical excellence during your visit here.

Without question, our facility will impress you with its beauty and thoughtful amenities. But ultimately, what will truly distinguish UPMC East is the quality of care you receive. This is where we have focused our greatest energies: attracting the most qualified and expert individuals to our staff, at every job level.

We are united in all we do by our core values. Together, we’re creating a culture from the ground up, too — one that emphasizes dignity, respect, and compassion in how we treat our patients and each other, and a commitment to serving our community with excellence. This is our promise to you.

We already are, in the truest sense, a community hospital. But in the UPMC tradition of innovation and leadership, our vision is to become a model of excellence for community hospitals nationwide. With your support, it is a goal within reach.
