Trauma Patient and Visitor Resources at UPMC Presbyterian
UPMC Presbyterian is one hospital with two buildings — UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Montefiore — linked by a pedestrian bridge that crosses over two streets and with links to other buildings as well. Various amenities and resources are available in both buildings, and it’s possible that patients may occasionally receive care in both facilities.
A full list of amenities for patients and visitors is available in the Patients & Visitors section of the UPMC Presbyterian website.
