UPMC abandons plan for $211.2M hospital in South Fayette

Pittsburgh-based UPMC has withdrawn its plan to build a 90-bed, $211.2 million hospital in South Fayette, Pa., according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

System spokeswoman Gloria Kreps would not say what prompted UPMC to cancel the project. However, she told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette UPMC is evaluating multiple sites in the southern suburbs of Pittsburgh for a new hospital, which would offer intensive care, inpatient and outpatient services, surgery and emergency care.

This is the second hospital construction project UPMC has backed away from in the past year. The system cancelled plans in September 2016 to build a 300,000-square-foot hospital in Pleasant Hills, Pa.
