On July 31, UPMC Jameson’s new Outpatient Center, located in New Castle, Pa., opened for service. The newly renovated facility on the ground floor of the hospital features The Heart and Vascular Institute at UPMC Jameson and The UPMC Esophageal and Lung Surgery Institute at UPMC Jameson, and now is home to centralized patient registration, imaging, diagnostics and infusion services.

Additional hospital renovations at UPMC Jameson included an improved outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation center on the hospital’s fifth floor and a newly renovated space for the UPMC Center for Wound Healing Services at UPMC Jameson, relocated from Jameson’s South Campus facility.

Vascular surgeons from UPMC Passavant and UPMC Horizon will join the cardiologists of The Heart and Vascular Institute at UPMC Jameson to expand the scope of testing, treatments and procedures available locally.

Since Jameson’s merger with UPMC just over one year ago, UPMC has invested more than $31 million in facility upgrades.
