Description

The University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is an integrated global nonprofit health enterprise that is closely affiliated with its academic partner, the University Of Pittsburgh.

UPMC Shadyside is a 520-bed tertiary care hospital that was once known as Shadyside Hospital.

The hospital began downtown in 1866 as Homeopathic Medical & Surgical Hospital before eventually moving to the city's Shadyside neighborhood. The present building was erected in 1972 and it became part of UPMC in 1997.

UPMC Shadyside is a handsome, redbrick building with an attractive contemporary addition that offers primary medical care; physician and nursing education; and a broad range of specialties.

Public events are often held in the Herberman Conference Center, a wing of the hospital named after Dr. Ronald Herberman, the former director of the University Of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.
