5 Amazing Things

In 2023, our generous donors helped the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation accomplish so much. Here are just a few things you made possible:

  • Early detection is crucial in the fight against cancer. 261 patients in need received vouchers for free mammograms through the Mammogram Voucher Program
  • The first graduating class of 42 students of the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing at UPMC Harrisburg received their diplomas in December 2023
  • 2,674 home visits were provided by the Community Paramedicine team, reducing risk for patients with high-risk diagnoses or comorbidities
  • The Helping Hands Fund provided transportation free of charge to 2,692 patients who couldn’t otherwise make it to their appointments
  • Translation services were provided to 195 children and their families receiving care at the UPMC Child Advocacy Center of Central Pa., ensuring that these children are able to share their experience in their own words.

All this, and so much more, was made possible by the support of donors like you. Thank you for caring for UPMC Central Pa. patients and our community. We are grateful for you!
