At UPMC, caring for others and improving lives is always our primary focus. As the neighbor people count on for high-quality care, we enhance the health of individuals and families, and strengthen the communities we call home.
Each year, UPMC gives back more than $1 billion to support the community. These funds underwrite charity care for those individuals who can’t afford treatment, and subsidize more than 3,000 community-focused programs and services, such as community health screenings, programs for seniors, activities for children, investments in scientific research and medical education, and efforts to help battle the opioid epidemic.
In addition to delivering life-changing medicine every day, our 87,000 UPMC employees contribute their time and talents to improve the overall health of the community. Our people help us take on difficult issues, like education, hunger, and homelessness, to make sure the places we serve are safe, healthy, and welcoming for everyone. This important work is supporting our broader effort to make communities where we’ve put down roots welcoming places to live, work, and play.
On the following pages, you will see how UPMC improves lives for both people and communities. We’re sure you’ll agree that care is at the center of everything we do.
