UPMC Mercy Pavilion

The UPMC Mercy Pavilion will offer complete care for people who:

  • Need physical therapy (PT) and rehabilitation.
  • Have vision impairments or diseases of the eye.

We are carefully planning the cutting-edge, patient-centered space with the architectural team at HOK to welcome all patients and visitors. Physical cues will help people find their way from the point of entry throughout the entire building.
