Pittsburgh-based UPMC reported higher revenue in the first nine months of 2018 than in the same period a year earlier.

Here are four things to know:

3. After factoring in expenses, UPMC ended the first nine months of 2018 with operating income of $190 million, down from $196 million in the same period of 2017.
