UPMC Magee in Cranberry
Destination North for UPMC
It’s Cranberry Township where UPMC’s footprint continues to expand with additional services for women and children at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, thus adding convenience for patients in Beaver, Butler and Lawrence counties.
UPMC recently invested $4 million in women’s specialty services at the Cranberry location with the expansion of UPMC Magee-Womens. Beginning in October, the complex will offer early cancer detection, surgery consultation, obstetrics and gynecology, a lymphedema clinic, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, midwifery, breast imaging and a Comprehensive Cancer Center for women’s cancer prevention and diagnosis with UPMC Hillman Center.
“Cranberry and Wexford are growing communities, and the women of these communities deserve robust obstetrics and gynecological services,” said Dr. Marydonna Ravasio, OB-GYN
The center has been in the planning stages for some time and is a part of the Pittsburgh-based health system’s wide range of services in the North Hills that include UPMC Passavant Hospital, outpatient centers and the Penguins training center that also houses UPMC sports medicine and orthopedics.
“Magee has always meant excellence in women’s health and women’s health is the key to a healthy population and a healthy society,” stated Dr. Robert Edwards, chair of the department of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive services at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital.
Additionally, the Lemieux Sports Complex recently opened UPMC Children’s Express Care, an after-hours care center for pediatric patients. The Express Care center is an extensive of UPMC’s pediatric primary care facilities. Rather than traveling to UPMC Children’s Hospital in Lawrenceville when a child’s primary care physician is unavailable, patients are now able to visit the Lemieux Complex for minor injuries.
The Express Care center is available in the evenings from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital President Dr. Richard Beigi said the Cranberry facility is designed to be a one-stop shop for general and advanced care although, if needed, patients can always receive additional specialized care at the flagship hospital in Pittsburgh.
So, whether your destination is Cranberry or Pittsburgh, the care will be equal in quality.
