With a $US1.5 billion investment, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) has begun building UPMC Presbyterian, the largest healthcare facility in Pennsylvania.
Over a four-year period, it is anticipated that the new 1.2 million square foot structure will provide around 3,400 construction employment.
The 17-story hospital will contain 636 private patient rooms as well as clinical spaces for neurology and neurosurgery, cardiology, and transplant.
Private rooms, a 450-space parking garage, and a gym are just a few of the amenities the new hospital will provide to make patients feel better and recuperate faster.
The building will look entirely different. It will include areas that are built to take advantage of technological advancements while supporting staff and patients in a beautiful setting that complements the ingenuity and attention to detail offered by UPMC.
The glass used in the new hospital will have patterns, which specialists claim is not only aesthetically pleasing but also good for the health of the patients.
UPMC first announced three additional facilities several years ago; the second significant project to start development is UPMC Presbyterian.
The first project, Mercy Pavilion, will start seeing patients next year, and the new building will be finished in 2026.
