​UPMC Disabilities Resource Center

The Disabilities Resource Center was established in 2007 to ensure that health care is accessible to people with disabilities at UPMC.

Our focus is on the following areas:

  • Education and training
  • Facility accessibility
  • Community engagement
  • Policy

Our work is guided by our advisory council that consists of disability experts and advocates from the community and UPMC. We are supported internally by the UPMC Disability Champions, the DRC Physician Advisory Group, and the Facility Review Committee.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of assistance, please visit our UPMC Disabilities Resources page for information about our available resources.

Additionally, if you require assistance outside of UPMC, feel free to visit our Community Resource page for more information.
