Our Funds

Passavant’s rich history began when opening its doors in the hills of Pittsburgh in 1849. Relocating to the North Hills in 1964, Passavant fulfilled the community’s need for a local hospital and continues to provide quality health care. Passavant Hospital Foundation has served the hospital for over 39 years and continues to support UPMC Passavant’s excellence in health care and advance the health of all in our community through:

  • Funding direct support for our most vulnerable patients and those of limited financial means
  • Providing facilities, technology and equipment at our hospital to support excellence in patient care
  • Sponsoring free workshops and seminars for all in the community, to promote personal well-being
  • Offering support groups for families affected by a loved one’s addiction
  • Forming community partnerships for greater impact on health concerns that affect us all

Passavant Hospital Foundation supports UPMC Passavant Hospital and the UPMC Passavant Community by the Foundation’s generous donors who help support the following:

Patient Assistance Fund: The Patient Assistance Fund helps those with expenses associated with medications, equipment, groceries and other resources. 

Cancer Care Fund: The Cancer Care Fund was established in 2014 by the Foundation to support our patient’s costs associated with cancer including medication, housing, food, transportation and end-of-life care. A course of treatment can be very expensive and take months or years. 

Nursing Development Fund: The Nursing Education Fund was established for nurses at UPMC Passavant who wish to advance their personal knowledge and skill and contribute to the hospital’s mission of excellence in patient care.
