Nearly 500 UPMC physicians have been recognized as 2018 "Best Doctors" in over 70 areas of expertise. UPMC doctors represent 75 percent of the physicians listed in Pittsburgh. These physicians are part of the Best Doctors in America® list, which is compiled by Best Doctors Inc. An exhaustive peer review determines the physicians included in the list. Doctors cannot buy listings. Only those who earn the consensus support of their peers and meet additional qualification criteria are included.
These are just a few of the ways in which UPMC hospitals have been recognized:
UPMC Bedford has earned Advanced Disease-Specific Care Certification for Acute Stroke Ready Hospital from The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Over the years, UPMC Children’s has earned many accolades and honors, including “Best Children’s Hospitals” honors.
The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center is one of only 47 cancer centers in the United States with a Comprehensive Cancer Center designation by the National Cancer Institute. It is the only one in western Pennsylvania.
