May 29, 2024

Children and staff in the pediatrics inpatient unit were treated to views of the superheroes waving and posing for photos through the windows of the hospital.

“Today is superhero day and, we, the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation, does it in partnership with UPMC Children’s, to honor what we say is our true superheroes, the patients and the families that are here in and out of the hospital system every day,” said UPMC Pinnacle Foundation President Jessica Ritchie.

“We also do it to honor our staff-who are amazing and provide the care that’s needed for the children that are here.”

The event is also a fundraiser with t-shirts and capes being sold for the event, and the funds going toward the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation Brooks/Schiffman Pediatric Fund.
