Expanding Our Footprint and Exploring New Frontiers in Medicine

With its headquarters in Pittsburgh, UPMC has an international presence in two countries in addition to Ireland:

UPMC also supports patients in countries where highly specialized care may not be readily available. UPMC Traveling Patient Services connects patients with complex medical diagnoses to experts at UPMC facilities for teleconsultations, second opinions, surgical care, and telemonitoring services. The UPMC Traveling Patient Services team is the single point of contact to help patients and their in-country physicians navigate the UPMC network so we can provide the care they need quickly and conveniently.

The UPMC Traveling Patient Services team also supports travel requirements, translation services, housing, and other travel logistics.

And to support our commitment to innovation and our pledge to push boundaries when it comes to science, healthcare innovation, and patient care, UPMC Enterprises is helping to change America's healthcare system. As an incubator, UPMC Enterprises uses the resources of UPMC and other partners to solve some of the most complex challenges facing healthcare institutions today.
