People with disabilities who receive care at UPMC have access to a number of disability departments.
In 2007, we created the UPMC Disabilities Resource Center with the goal of improving access to health care for our patients with disabilities.
The center's staff:
A critical element of our work is to engage with the disability community. An Advisory Council guides our disability efforts and helps set our priorities.
Our commitment is to make sure all UPMC patients receive high quality health care.
Here are some ways we can help:
Contact the UPMC Disabilities Resource Center with any questions, comments, or suggestions related to your disability. We'll work to make sure we meet your needs.
In the event that you feel you have been discriminated against on the basis of a disability, you may file a complaint through the UPMC Compliance Helpline. UPMC prohibits retaliation against anyone for raising, in good faith, a concern or question about inappropriate or illegal behavior.
