Get "Fast" Facts About UPMC's Expert Emergency Care

UPMC has long been recognized for expert emergency care. To provide even more effective, patient-centered care, our Emergency Departments (EDs) reduced wait times to get patients the expert care they expect much faster than nearly any other hospital in Pittsburgh. UPMC hospitals consistently deliver care faster than Emergency Departments across the U.S., while providing world-class care from nationally recognized physicians.

UPMC Emergency Departments treat emergencies for all patients, regardless of insurance and no matter how severe.
