As one of the country's leading healthcare providers, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center understands how important it is to balance advanced cancer-fighting treatments and technology with a personal connection to the patients they serve.
The John P. Murtha Pavilion is the first of nine freestanding centers east of Pittsburgh and allows local access to up to 99% of innovative cancer treatments. Their goal is to provide the convenience of a facility close to home with the comforts of home itself.
The expansive two-story lobby is designed to embrace patients, families, and visitors as soon as they arrive and offers clear direction to various departments without a sense of being overwhelmed. Services are divided evenly throughout the facility to allow for a steady flow of activity and energy.
Large windows open up to panoramic views of a healing and meditation garden, where patients and staff alike find themselves surrounded by a place of peace and serenity without feeling isolated. The center also features an extensive patient education center, which reinforces a connection to the community by providing easy access to important resources.
When it comes to hospitals, we recognize how difficult it can be to serve locally while thinking globally. With John P. Murtha, we created a place where the doors are always open, giving the community access to state-of-the-art cancer-fighting options right in their own backyard.
