UPMC will present a proposal to rezone its shuttered UPMC Mercy South Side hospital for nonmedical purposes during an Oct. 22 meeting with the Pittsburgh Planning Commission, Pittsburgh Business Times reports.

UPMC Mercy South Side Outpatient Center closed last year after moving its services to other facilities in the Pittsburgh-based UPMC network.

The health system partnered with Oxford Development Company on a proposal to renovate the three-building hospital to house IT staff and operations. UPMC currently has around 200 IT employees working from the complex and plans to further consolidate its IT functions, according to the report.
