Just like great medicine, a stronger economy changes lives. Every dollar directly spent by UPMC results in more than twice as much impact on the state's economy.
UPMC is the largest nongovernmental employer in Pennsylvania, directly supporting more than 90,000 jobs — accounting for one in four hospital employees statewide.
UPMC invested $971 million in capital expenditures in 2019 to help ensure our patients have access to modern facilities, equipment, and cutting-edge information technology.
UPMC's spending creates jobs and has a stimulus effect that ripples through local economies, impacting local construction, manufacturing, supplies, deliveries and more.
Supporting Local Businesses
UPMC's supplier diversity initiative actively recruits and provides diverse businesses with equal access to procurement opportunities — $212 million in diversity spending in 2019.
With UPMC Health Plan, consumers and the corporate community benefit from some of the lowest health insurance prices in the United States.
