Year in Review: 2023

A Note from Obstetrics and Gynecology Leadership

We take great pride in our delivery of clinical excellence, robust research program, and long-standing commitment to educating and training emerging young professionals to deliver compassionate, high-quality care and serve as leaders within their chosen fields.

Centered at UPMC of Magee-Womens Hospital, our clinical program continues to expand our reach and even wider geographic range to now serve Western, Central, and select regions of Northern Pennsylvania. Our highly accomplished department faculty is devoted to the investigation of the full spectrum of diseases associated with the health of women and infants and is equally dedicated to translating these clinical and basic scientific findings into new clinical applications.

Our collaborative efforts with the group of world-renowned scientists at Magee-Womens Research Institute further enrich our groundbreaking investigative endeavors and allow us to bring innovative surgical and medical approaches to patient care.

We welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our efforts in 2023 and hope you'll consider voting for UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital in the U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" survey.

8 UPMC Magee-Womens Hospitals Recognized as High Performing Hospitals for Maternity Care

U.S. News & World Report released its 2024 “Best Hospitals for Maternity” ratings, and we are honored to announce that 8 hospitals in the UPMC Magee-Womens network have been recognized as High Performing Hospital for Maternity Care (Uncomplicated Pregnancy) – the highest award hospitals can earn for maternity care from U.S. News.

We thank our expert physicians, nurses, and staff at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital, UPMC Altoona, UPMC Carlisle, UPMC Harrisburg, UPMC Horizon, UPMC Lititz, UPMC Memorial, and UPMC Williamsport for delivering the highest-quality maternity care to families across the state.

We also are proud to announce that three UPMC hospitals – UPMC Carlisle, UPMC Williamsport, and UPMC Northwest– were recognized as Maternity Access Hospitals, which highlights essential hospitals that provide care to expectant parents who wouldn’t otherwise have access to maternity care and serve communities that would otherwise be maternity care deserts.
