Just like great medicine, a stronger economy changes lives. Every dollar directly spent by UPMC results in more than twice as much impact on the state’s economy.
UPMC is the largest nongovernmental employer in Pennsylvania, directly supporting more than 90,000 jobs.
Our investment in employees and state-of-the-art patient care facilities has a wide ranging impact. UPMC invested $782 million in capital expenditures in 2021 to help ensure our patients have access to modern facilities, equipment, and cutting-edge information technology. Beyond this direct impact to our patients, this spending creates jobs and has a stimulus effect that ripples through local economies, increasing local construction, manufacturing, supplies, deliveries, and more.
In addition to making a big investment, we also care about making sure diverse businesses and workers are included. Through UPMC’s supplier diversity initiative, we actively recruit and provide diverse businesses with equal access to procurement opportunities, with $293 million in diversity spending in 2021.
