PITTSBURGH – In an effort to increase patient access to pediatric subspecialty care services in the southwestern PA region, UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh opened a new specialty care center in Washington County.


UPMC Children’s Specialty Care Center Washington will offer access to highly skilled specialists who will travel to the center and provide outpatient services, including diagnostic evaluations and follow-up care.


“UPMC Children’s is committed to providing high-quality, pediatric subspecialty care in our communities.  As the need for these services in Washington and surrounding counties has increased, we recognize this opportunity to accommodate families in the region,” said Michael J. Comunale, executive administrator, ambulatory and physician services, UPMC Children’s. “This location allows us to create timely access to world class care in a convenient manner for our patients and families providing both in person and video visits.”


Pediatric subspecialists will provide services in endocrinology, gastroenterology and neurology. Additional subspecialties will be added over time at the center located in Washington Hospital next to the emergency care entrance. UPMC Children’s Express Care will continue to provide services at this location for after-hours care of minor injuries and illnesses. 


Other specialty care centers are located in Erie, Johnstown and Sharon.
