UPMC to Build Hospital in Monroeville
Posted on Nov 06, 2008
In March, UPMC said it was buying the former Palace Inn on Mosside Boulevard in Monroeville for nearly $19 million. The building sits on 12 acres.
At that time, UPMC said the entire structure would be renovated into a health center with outpatient clinics, diagnostic imaging services, an ambulatory surgery center, and urgent care center and doctors' offices.
But now, according to a filing with the local planning commission, UPMC plans to put a 334,000-square-foot hospital and a parking garage on the grounds. The plans alos include an emergency center.
UPMC is the biggest employer in the Pittsburgh region.
