PITTSBURGH, Nov. 26, 2019 – UPMC’s financial results for the first nine months of Calendar Year 2019 support its ongoing commitment to expand accessibility of world-class advanced specialty care throughout UPMC’s tertiary care hubs across the state and beyond, into the communities where care is needed, close to people’s homes.

For the first nine months of Calendar Year 2019, UPMC’s operating revenues increased to $15 billion, with a net income of $298 million. Operating income, which is reinvested in programs that support

UPMC’s mission of advancing patient care, was $93 million. UPMC’s Insurance Services Division — the largest medical insurer in western Pennsylvania — grew 5% to nearly 3.6 million subscribers. UPMC’s admissions and observations decreased 1% compared to a year ago.

UPMC’s earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization (operating EBIDA) — a key measure of financial performance and the ability to generate the necessary resources for reinvestment — were $567 million.

The health system spent $737 million on capital expenditures and business investments during the period ended September 30.

“UPMC continues to make significant advancements in our facilities, equipment, technology and operational strategies to provide specialty services and patient care in more communities where it is needed,” said Robert A. DeMichiei, UPMC executive vice president and chief financial officer.

“Our mission is to expand our signature high-end clinical service lines, such as Hillman Cancer Center, Magee-Womens, and Heart & Vascular Institute, to our hospitals and outpatient centers in our regional hubs throughout the state and beyond,” said Leslie Davis, UPMC senior vice president, and executive vice president and chief operating officer, UPMC Health Services Division.

“These investments have helped advance our regional hub hospitals to become more like tertiary care centers for their local communities. Examples of this are UPMC Hamot in Erie and UPMC Pinnacle in Harrisburg. And in southwestern Pennsylvania, as we plan the development of our specialty hospitals in Pittsburgh, there is opportunity to move other complex care services to some of our other hospitals in our surrounding communities, such as UPMC Passavant, which is becoming our specialty care center in the region north of the city,” Davis said.
