Last July, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center opened a $250 million dollar, 156-bed hospital in Monroeville.
A year in, Mark Sevco, UPMC’s East President said they have had “a great first year.”
They are seeing more than a hundred patients a day in the emergency department, operating at 75 percent capacity.
“We were expecting 65 patients a day, and we’re at about 115," Sevco said. "And from a surgical perspective, we’re 50 percent over our budget projections."
