A world-renowned health care provider and insurer, Pittsburgh-based UPMC is inventing new models of accountable, cost-effective, patient-centered care. It provides more than $622 million a year in benefits to its communities, including more care to the region's most vulnerable citizens than any other health care institution. The largest non-governmental employer in Pennsylvania, UPMC integrates more than 60,000 employees, 20 hospitals, 400 doctors' offices and outpatient sites, a 2.1-million-member health insurance division, and international and commercial operations. Affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences, UPMC ranked No. 10 in the prestigious U.S. News & World Report annual Honor Roll of America's Best Hospitals in 2012—and No. 1 in Pennsylvania.

In addition, UPMC has become a national leader in environmental stewardship. It is a founding member and serves on the steering committee of the DOE's Better Buildings Alliance Healthcare sector group. During fiscal year 2013, UPMC's energy/environmental efforts earned it the “Governor's Award” and The Hospital Association of Pennsylvania's Achievement Award. As a Better Buildings Challenge Partner, UPMC will achieve a minimum 20% energy intensity reduction through the continuation of a plan which already has two years of momentum and over five million dollars per year of dedicated funding.
