Center for Integrative Medicine

The Center for Integrative Medicine at UPMC Shadyside is the first hospital-based center in Pittsburgh to combine natural healing practices with conventional medicine.

“Integrative medicine” refers to the incorporation of evidence-based complementary therapies into conventional treatments for patients.

Integrative medicine is meant to work in conjunction with traditional medicine, providing a more holistic approach to healing — mind, body, and spirit.
