At UPMC, we continue to move forward in implementing our COVID-19 response measures. Our testing capabilities are rapidly increasing, and we have expanded our testing footprint beyond Pittsburgh, opening locations in Altoona, Erie, Harrisburg, and Williamsport.
We were fortunate that our communities started with low rates of COVID-19 infection. The positive effects of social distancing and isolation, as well as UPMC’s ability to track each case we test, tell us our infection rates remain lower than other regions. Hopefully, this trend persists. At the same time, we remain committed to providing superior care to the relatively few cases that have been admitted to our hospitals and to protecting the safety of our staff and patients as we navigate these challenging times.
As a reminder, if you feel you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, you should call your doctor or use
, where a doctor will assess your condition online.
For other health issues, such as more common flu symptoms or previously scheduled appointments, many UPMC primary care doctors and specialists can provide convenient video visits through MyUPMC. You can find more information about both these services in the articles below.
Finally, we would like to recognize all our physicians today on National Doctors’ Day. They remain committed to providing the very best care for their patients during these challenging times. At the same time, we also want to recognize and thank all our nurses, technicians, and other employees who continue to provide our patients with the high-quality care they have come to expect from UPMC.
As always, we are here for you, and we thank you for choosing and trusting UPMC.
