Find a Primary Care Physician

To find a UPMC Bedford PCP near you, call 1‑800‑533‑8762 (UPMC) or visit our Find A Doctor website.

At UPMC Bedford, our goal is to help residents in our rural community get healthy — and stay healthy.

Our primary care providers (PCPs), physician assistants, and nurse practitioners offer complete care for your entire family at offices throughout Bedford County.

Why Do You Need a Primary Care Doctor?

Having a trusted relationship with your PCP provides you with an important partner for your health care needs.

Your PCP at UPMC Bedford:

  • Focuses on your total health.
  • Promotes healthy lifestyles and prevention.
  • Treats common medical conditions.

During routine check-ups, your PCP will record your height and weight and screen for “silent” diseases — ones you may not know you have — such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Some forms of cancer

If your PCP detects a problem, he or she will work with you to address it and track your progress.

Benefits of Having a Primary Care Physician

Your PCP will:

  • Know you, your lifestyle, and your health history.
  • Be your “go-to” when you’re sick.
  • Provide screenings, preventive care, and physicals (school and truck driver).
  • Keep a close eye on your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.
  • Maintain your health records.
  • Assess and direct your health care needs.
  • Refer you to medical specialists, when you need other care.
  • Work with the UPMC Bedford hospitalist following discharge to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home.
