Welcome to the Passavant Hospital Foundation
The mission of Passavant Hospital Foundation is to support UPMC Passavant by advancing health and wellness through education, outreach, and grant making.
Passavant Hospital Foundation will be a visible extension of the Passavant legacy of caring in making the region a leader in healthcare awareness, accessibility and quality.
The Passavant Hospital Foundation was incorporated in 1981 as a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, and opened its offices in 1983 for the sole and exclusive purpose of raising funds for the benefit of the Passavant family ...formerly named North Hills Passavant Hospital. From 1981 to 1997, the Foundation was an affiliate corporation of Passavant Hospital.
In 1997, (North Hills) Passavant Hospital merged with the University of Pittsburgh Medical System (UPMC) to become UPMC Passavant. Following the merger, the Foundation remained a separate corporate entity with its assets and fundraising activities devoted exclusively to continuing to benefit UPMC Passavant and the interests of Passavant Hospital Foundation. Funds contributed by our constituents remain in our surrounding communities and are used to develop new hospital services at UPMC Passavant in McCandless and Cranberry Townships plus support Passavant Hospital Foundation's outreach programs.
Since inception, the Foundation helped to fund many hospital projects totaling more than $122 million; a number of which were completed in recent years. Notably, the Foundation contributed $65 million towards the construction of a seven-floor 188,000 square foot Pavilion Tower on Passavant's 134-acre campus in McCandless Township. The Tower is designed to provide state-of-the-art advanced tertiary services while keeping focused on improving the access and flow for patients and families throughout the building. In another of these projects, the Foundation contributed $16.4 million to build a conference center plus a 250-seat amphitheatre on the UPMC Passavant McCandless campus. Known as the Passavant Hospital Foundation Conference Center & Legacy Theatre, the Foundation offers seminars, lectures and other outreach activities, all free-of-charge, in this new center for residents and the community at large.
Through the Foundation's outreach programs, we provide opportunities for you to embrace a healthier lifestyle and, in turn, inspire the population to take steps toward a healthier community.
