The Emergency Department at UPMC East in Monroeville provides complete 24/7 emergency care for Pittsburgh's eastern communities.
Our facility includes:
The UPMC East ED has an observation program to facilitate evaluation and treatment of patients requiring longer care than a typical ED visit, but who may not need formal hospital admission.
Our laboratory, imaging services, and medical care are open 24/7. We offer advanced treatment to a wide variety of health issues, including:
We provide nationally accredited treatment for strokes in collaboration with the world-class UPMC Stroke Institute.
If you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 and have only mild symptoms – and you do not have difficulty breathing – you can schedule a COVID-19 test at a designated test location. The Emergency Department is NOT the place to get a COVID-19 test UNLESS you are experiencing breathing problems or other severe symptoms.
Going to an Emergency Department with mild or no symptoms may create a long wait time for you to be seen and COVID-19 test results do not come back more quickly – they still will take one, two, or more days.
For a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. For immediate help with a psychological crisis, including suicidal thoughts, call 800-273-8255 or text 741741.
For patients who need a longer course of treatment without admission, our Observation and Evaluation Program provides high quality critical care while decreasing hospital length stay and getting our patients back to their families safely.
We offer medical care for issues such as:
Our on-site outpatient pharmacy allows you to get your prescriptions filled before going home. Talk with your nurse or our pharmacy staff to have your discharge prescriptions sent to our pharmacy. We can have your medications delivered to you so you can go straight home.
Hours of Operation
Monday through Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As a Primary Stroke Center certified by the Joint Commission, UPMC East offers an acute stroke team available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our care team includes doctors and nurses experienced in diagnosing and treating cerebrovascular disease.
The stroke program also collaborates with neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and other subspecialties to determine the most appropriate treatment for different kinds of stroke.
For the safety of our patients and staff during the current COVD-19 pandemic, UPMC is temporarily restricting access to our facilities to only:
Adult patients are permitted one support person. Pediatric patients are permitted two support persons. UPMC requires all visitors wear a facemask and follow social distancing guidelines at all times. Support people must be 18 years of age or older.
We encourage you to use FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, and phone calls to virtually visit with loved ones while they are in the hospital. If you need help with this, please let a staff member know.
