Presby expansion

In June, UPMC broke ground on a 17-story addition to Presbyterian hospital that will transform the landscape of the Oakland campus, how care is delivered in Southwestern Pennsylvania and how medical education looks at Pitt.

The new building will make UPMC Presbyterian the largest academic hospital in the region. For Pitt Med students, the addition will translate to more learning and training opportunities in the heart of Oakland.

Twelve new operating rooms and 636 private patient rooms—many of them “acuity adaptable”—will create more spaces for specialized care and easier opportunities to keep patients in place, rather than transferring them to another unit or hospital as their condition changes. Teams will be able to ramp up support more seamlessly as needed in this patient- and family-centered care environment.

The new facility opens in late 2026.
