November 23, 2021

Join the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation during their 1st Annual Day of Gratitude on September 21, 2021, and share your words of thanks for your UPMC of Central Pa experience or caregiver.

The UPMC Pinnacle Foundation’s goal for the 1st Annual Day of Gratitude is to collect as many incredible stories and words of thanks from UPMC of Central Pa patients as possible — to share life-changing generosity that helps spark courage and strength and reminds us why our caregivers are so important. It has been a challenging time for doctors, nurses, frontline workers, and staff, and it is impossible to overlook the power of gratitude, positivity, and encouragement.

Throughout the day on September 21st, the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation will be sharing a variety of incredible stories from across all 7 UPMC of Central Pa hospitals. Stories that remind us that when we are in our darkest moments, our healthcare heroes will be there to see us through.
