UPMC Leadership

UPMC is governed by a volunteer, unpaid Board of Directors that represents a broad cross-section of the communities and constituencies we serve. The board is consistently at the forefront in implementing best-in-class corporate governance practices and transparency standards.

One third of the UPMC Board of Directors’ votes are cast by directors appointed by the University of Pittsburgh; and the remaining two-thirds of the total votes are held by a combination of individuals elected from the community at-large and individuals appointed by the Subsidiary Hospitals or their affiliated organizations.

Committees of the board include Audit, Ethics & Compliance, Executive Compensation, Finance, Governance & Nominating, Inclusion & Diversity, International & Enterprises, Investment, and Quality Patient Care.
