UPMC Rehabilitation Institute at UPMC Mercy Pavilion

At UPMC Mercy Pavilion, rehabilitation physicians and researchers – as well as the physical, occupational, and speech therapists with whom they work so closely – will be in a singular, collaborative space to further research and enhance the patient experience. They will provide outpatient physical medicine and rehabilitation services in this cutting-edge, patient-centered facility.

Our Services

Patients who are in inpatient rehabilitation just across the bridge at UPMC Mercy or at another facility may then be referred to outpatient physician services or rehabilitation at the UPMC Mercy Pavilion. Others may come for outpatient services having never been in inpatient rehabilitation. 

The layout of this facility creates a natural flow from one provider to the next to streamline the experience for patients throughout their rehabilitation journey.
