Welcome to the Shadyside Hospital Foundation

Torrence M. Hunt, Jr., Chairperson, and Louise R. Brown, Executive Director

A warm welcome to our website, where we invite you to discover how Pittsburgh’s premier hospital foundation and our generous donors enhance every patient’s experience at UPMC Shadyside, one of the outstanding hospitals in the nation. Since 1975 our volunteer board has successfully stewarded the gifts of generous donors, putting their dollars to work to help create a world-renowned hospital that makes our community strong. Supporting projects for quality care, education, and research that lie beyond the hospital’s normal operating budget, the Shadyside Hospital Foundation changes lives. We thank all those who bring our vision to life, and the UPMC Shadyside physicians, nurses, staff, and administration who work with such commitment and innovation for every patient. And we urge you to make a gift now to the Foundation, where your generosity will go to work for world-class care for you, your family … and all those who turn to a great hospital in times of need.
