A Christmas Message from Our President

Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, β€œIt is Christmas every time you let God love others through you.” In the face of hospitalization and illness, we know that many of our patients and their families are challenged to find joy, especially during the holidays. That is why, in the spirit Christmas, it is our both our hope and privilege to listen, share, and provide them the best possible comfort and care.

At UPMC Mercy, our family includes men and women of many faiths and backgrounds whose work honors the true spirit of Christmas year-round. On behalf of us all, we wish you and your family the joy and blessings of this Christmas Season.


Michael A. Grace
President, UPMC Mercy
