UPMC Hamot is the first and only hospital in the area to receive comprehensive certification and is among only five percent of hospitals nationally with this designation.

As UPMC Hamot's regional presence as a tertiary hub expands, it means more acutely ill patients are in need of a higher quality of care. Project 20/20, a seven-story patient tower scheduled to be completed in 2020, will house two new intensive care units. In addition, the new patient tower will expand critical care services and will include a neurocritical care POD to enhance the care provided to neurological disorders. At $111 million, it will be the biggest capital project in UPMC Hamot's history.
