Emergency Department at UPMC East

The Emergency Department at UPMC East in Monroeville provides complete 24/7 emergency care for Pittsburgh's eastern communities.

Our facility includes:

  • A dedicated heliport
  • A hazmat decontamination area
  • Specialized exam rooms for patients requiring a larger bed or motorized lift.
  • Bedside registration
  • All doctors are board-certified or board-eligible in emergency medicine
  • Specially trained emergency medicine nursing staff
  • Post-emergency care coordination with the patient's primary care doctor

The UPMC East ED has an observation program to facilitate evaluation and treatment of patients requiring longer care than a typical ED visit, but who may not need formal hospital admission.

Our laboratory, imaging services, and medical care are open 24/7. We offer advanced treatment to a wide variety of health issues, including:

  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Heart attacks

We provide nationally accredited treatment for strokes in collaboration with the world-class UPMC Stroke Institute.

COVID-19 Tests

If you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 and have only mild symptoms – and you do not have difficulty breathing – you can schedule a COVID-19 test at a designated test location. The Emergency Department is NOT the place to get a COVID-19 test UNLESS you are experiencing breathing problems or other severe symptoms.

Going to an Emergency Department with mild or no symptoms may create a long wait time for you to be seen and COVID-19 test results do not come back more quickly – they still will take one, two, or more days.

Get more information or find a testing location near you.

For a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department. For immediate help with a mental health crisis, call 988 for the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
