Facilities Improvements

Honoring Joseph Michael ChubbuckDuring its history, the Foundation has helped to fund many hospital projects, contributing more than $122 million. Notably, the Foundation contributed $65 million towards the construction of a seven-floor 188,000 square foot Pavilion on Passavant's 134-acre campus in McCandless. The Foundation contributed $16.4 million to build a conference center and a 250-seat theater on the McCandless campus known as the Passavant Hospital Foundation Conference Center & Legacy Theatre.

In 2015 the Foundation funded $575,000 in renovations to the inpatient floor where most of the patients are receiving cancer treatment. A generous donation from the Chubbuck family of Rome NY allowed a family respite alcove to be dedicated at the end of the hall on that floor. 

In 2016 the Foundation committed $600,000 to expand the Heart and Vascular Institute at UPMC Passavant. The expansion will mean a better patient experience - more privacy and convenience - as well as state-of-the art technology.
