UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital: Caring for You During COVID-19

For over a century, we at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital have made caring for women and their families our top priority.

Our commitment to our patients remains the same during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our doctors, nurses, and staff are ready to provide the expert care you expect from us.

If you need us, we are here for you.

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital

At UPMC Magee, we provide complete, compassionate care in many areas of health. We are western Pennsylvania’s leader for obstetric and gynecologic care.

If you need to visit us during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking every step to keep you and your family safe. If you are pregnant, we will closely monitor the health of you and your baby to make sure both of you are healthy.

We are following all instructions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pa. Department of Health.

  • We screen patients and staff for COVID-19 exposure and symptoms.
  • We have expanded our testing capacities for the coronavirus. Find out more about our testing procedures.
  • We require all adults and children over 2 years old to wear facemasks at all times inside all UPMC facilities.
  • We use hospital-grade disinfectants to extensively clean all of our facilities. We are especially focused on sanitizing high-touch areas like countertops and doorknobs.
  • Our health care workers can provide expert care for any of your medical needs. We have enough supplies of masks, gowns, gloves, and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep them — and you — safe.
  • To protect our patients and staff, and to limit the potential for the spread of infectious disease, we currently are restricting visitors and volunteers at UPMC facilities. See our updated policy.
  • We have temporarily suspended in-person prenatal classes and all other consumer education classes. We are offering online classes for a variety of women's health areas, including pregnancy education.

What to Expect During Your In-Person Visit to Magee

It's safe to make a doctor's appointment and undergo a procedure.

We have updated our facility policies to provide necessary protection to patients and staff, rolling out extensive precautions.

Before your appointment, talk to your doctor about what to expect on your visit, including:

  • When to arrive.
  • What to do when you get there.
  • What you should bring.

You must wear a facemask to enter our facilities and continue to wear it throughout the building. We also ask that you follow COVID-19 preventive measures, such as regular handwashing and proper social distancing.

If you have a schedule procedure and feel you may be symptomatic, please notify your provider for guidance before arrival. If you develop symptoms while inpatient, please let your nurse or another staff member know.

More than ever, we're working to protect you. You can count on us.
