UPMC Presbyterian Tower

UPMC announced plans for the UPMC Presbyterian tower in 2017 as one of three new construction projects to be built within Pittsburgh.

The tower's design captures UPMC's vision for providing an exceptional environment in which to deliver a quality-focused patient experience while connecting patients, staff, and visitors to nature and to the neighborhood.

With patient experience at the center of this design and all that UPMC will do, the new hospital will:

  • Have all private patient rooms leveraging progressive technology designed to enhance patient care in a healing setting.
  • Unite UPMC's world-renowned clinical expertise for a full range of medical and surgical services, including renown signature programs for transplant, heart and vascular, and neurological care.
  • Provide the latest technology to connect patients, their families, and the clinical team across facilities in real-time with digital face-to face consultations to meet critical needs.
