UPMC Passavant Gastrointestinal Services

Gastrointestinal (GI) Center

Completed in 2012, the UPMC Passavant GI Center was designed to be the best in the region in patient-centered care, patient satisfaction, state-of-the-art services, equipment and technology, and excellence in patient safety and quality outcomes.
