Community Programs and Services

Taking health care beyond the doors of its hospitals, clinics, and offices, and bringing it into the region’s towns, schools and workplaces, UPMC Pinnacle is helping create healthier communities across central Pennsylvania. Through its charitable giving and community initiatives, UPMC Pinnacle is making a difference in the health and well-being of its neighbors. From public health and wellness initiatives to school health screenings, insurance enrollment help, home-visit programs, charity care, and free health classes, UPMC Pinnacle provided $18 million in community benefit in 2018.

That spirit of giving is embodied in the health system’s employees. UPMC Pinnacle’s employees have volunteered more than 12,000 hours of their personal time to community organizations and system-wide initiatives from 2017 to 2018.

UPMC Pinnacle began its important work in 1873 and today offers a variety of free community programs that are making a difference in the lives of central Pennsylvanians every day, including:

  • Mammogram Voucher Program (MVP) – UPMC Pinnacle provides women in our community who are uninsured or underinsured access to free, potentially life-saving mammograms.
