PITTSBURGH, August 29, 2016 – UPMC maintained its strong financial performance throughout fiscal year 2016, allowing the region's leading health care provider to continue delivering its nationally ranked clinical excellence while providing nearly $900 million a year in community benefits.

For the fiscal year, UPMC's operating revenues increased to $13 billion, due primarily to a 10 percent growth in insurance services. UPMC Insurance Services Division now has 3 million subscribers and is the largest medical and behavioral health services insurer in western Pennsylvania.

Operating income, which is reinvested in programs that support UPMC's mission of advancing patient care, was $310 million for the period ending June 30, 2016. UPMC's earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization (EBIDA) – a key measure of financial performance and the ability to generate the necessary resources for reinvestment – were $767 million, exceeding $500 million for the 12th consecutive year.

"For our patients, our insurance members and our community, we remain committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective health care all while continuing to provide more care to the region's most vulnerable citizens than any other health care institution," said Robert A. DeMichiei, UPMC executive vice president and chief financial officer.

In August 2016, for the 17th year, UPMC was named to the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of "America's Best Hospitals" several weeks after Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC was named to the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of "America's Best Children's Hospitals" for the seventh year. UPMC earned 12th position on the best hospitals Honor Roll, and Children's earned seventh place on the best children's hospital Honor Roll.

During the fiscal year, UPMC spent $428 million on capital expenditures and business investments. Over the last decade, UPMC has reinvested more than $5 billion to upgrade its technology, facilities and infrastructure, all toward ensuring top-quality care and the best patient experience.

Meanwhile, the recently published 2015-2016 UPMC Community Benefits Report shows UPMC provided $892 million – an average of $2.4 million a day – in IRS-defined community benefits during fiscal year 2015, the most recent data available.

UPMC delivered nearly 70 percent of all hospital charity care in western Pennsylvania, more than double all other hospitals combined, and far-exceeding UPMC's 40 percent share of hospital patients in the region.  

"Our total community benefit contribution equals about fifteen percent of our net patient revenue, topping most other leading medical centers across the country," DeMichiei said.

The report also describes UPMC's $26.5 billion impact on the region's economy.

In addition, as Pennsylvania's largest non-governmental employer, UPMC maintains its commitment to making sure that the retirement plans of its more than 60,000 employees system-wide are fully funded and contributed $90 million to its pension plans.
