UPMC Initiatives That Give Back to the Community

UPMC provides excellent community resources to those who’ve lived in Pittsburgh a lifetime or those just passing through while in short-term furnished apartments near UPMC.

Helping hands

UPMC is a healthcare provider that truly cares about its community and the impact it has on the lives of so many that rely on the care they provide to stay healthy. That’s why they’ve created specific programs to serve as community commitment initiatives, all of which are convenient to short-term furnished apartments near UPMC.

One of their initiatives is to improve the health of their community, create health awareness, and support community health events that are sponsored by their partners. UPMC has their own Engagement and Inclusion Center that encourages UPMC sponsorships and partnerships to help meet the needs of the communities they serve. The Center is dedicated to collaborating with both internal and external partners on diverse community events throughout the year. They host an annual Partnership Appreciation Event that recognizes individuals and organizations who advance inclusion by creating and supporting environments in which every participant feels valued and appreciated. 

They also have a Health Technology initiative that leverages UPMC resources to promote healthy lifestyles and health awareness through health technology, health fairs, health learning series, health screenings, and other communal services. All in hopes of helping members of the community take greater control of their health. As technology in health care becomes more prevalent, UPMC is demonstrating digital apps and health care solutions to its community members to educate them and make them comfortable with health care management technology.

Their final community initiative is the UPMC Healthy Communities 365*.  This initiative helps promote awareness of available health services and programs throughout the year for community members to take advantage of so they can live their best lives. More than just physical health, these programs encompass all areas: physical, mental, environmental, and financial. The Healthy Community 365* program empowers its neighbors to take charge of their own health.

UPMC partners with a variety of associations and educational institutions like the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, the Dignity & Respect Campaign, various fraternities and sororities, the Latino Family Center, NAACP and more to promote cultural and health awareness near short-term furnished apartments in the area and beyond.
