Our Ethics

Through its leadership and excellence, UPMC contributes to the health care industry, acts as a vital resource to the communities it serves, and touches the lives of residents of western Pennsylvania and beyond.

UPMC is built on a foundation of honesty and integrity. Every day, the decisions and actions of UPMC personnel impact patients, communities, and the health care industry. Therefore, it is the obligation of every staff member, physician, and faculty member to act honorably and appropriately as a representative of UPMC. To that end, UPMC has developed comprehensive policies that support its business values and principles. These policies — regarding conflict of interest, accounting and business records, political matters and lobbying, and protection of patient, staff, and business information — promote corporate values and compliance with the laws and support UPMC’s ongoing commitment to always conduct business in an honest and responsible way.

UPMC promotes a culture that encourages ethical conduct as well as compliance with the law.
