UPMC (Pittsburgh) opened the doors to the nine-story UPMC Mercy Pavilion, which houses the UPMC Vision Institute and UPMC Rehabilitation Institute.

The 410,000-square-foot UPMC Mercy Pavilion features collaborative spaces for community education, a rooftop garden, and a life skills apartment for patients. A new café, which is open to the public, and retail pharmacy are also included in the project.

The UPMC Vision Institute, which offers clinical and research and ophthalmology services, has an urgent eye care clinic and optical shop. A street lab provides space for clinicians, researchers, and patients to interact and model real-life situations where vision loss is a factor in a fully monitored and controlled environment.

The project team includes global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm HOK (Philadelphia).
