About UPMC St. Margaret

UPMC St. Margaret is a Magnet™ designated hospital. Magnet status is the highest international recognition for nursing excellence and leadership. UPMC St. Margaret is a 249-bed acute care and teaching hospital situated on a 21-acre campus near Aspinwall. It begins its second century of service with renewed dedication to more than 250,000 residents of northeastern Allegheny County and the Alle-Kiski Valley, providing residents convenient access to the area’s finest physicians and health services.

At UPMC St. Margaret, more than 800 primary care and specialty physicians, and 1,500 clinical and support staff members work together to provide patients with quality care and the latest technical and medical advances. To this end, UPMC St. Margaret is in the forefront of implementing eRecord, UPMC's electronic system of patient medical records. Because all of our patient rooms are private and equipped with a computer, our physicians and health professionals can use eRecord to electronically update medical records at the patient's bedside. UPMC St. Margaret is one of the first community hospitals in the region to utilize this advanced technology. The hospital also offers:

  • Complete outpatient service
