UPMC is committed to giving the best care possible to patients who have a disability and making sure that all patients, visitors and guests have equal access to health care.
Earlier is always better, we recommend reaching out at least two weeks prior to when you will need your disability related accommodations. If you are scheduling a visit or stay at a UPMC hospital, you can call the Disabilities Resource Center (DRC) to learn more about taking part in the Let UPMC Help You (LUHU) program. Through this patient care coordination program, the DRC will work with you and the hospital to pre-schedule communication assistance and accommodations before your stay or visit.
Contact the DRC at 412-605-1483 or email us at LUHU@UPMC.edu for more information. To request an accommodation, please complete the form below.
Tell your surgeon and the surgery scheduler of any assistive devices or accommodations that would ease your surgery. For example, the need for pressure relieving positioning during surgery to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers.
