UPMC Hamot is a 423-bed, Magnet ® hospital in Erie, PA, offering a full complement of inpatient and outpatient services, and serves as a regional referral hub and Level II Trauma Center. Supported by a 300-member medical staff and 3,500 dedicated employees, UPMC Hamot’s mission is to serve its patients, communities, and one another in the UPMC Hamot tradition of quality, health, healing, and education. UPMC Hamot’s superior health care services are continually recognized by notable accrediting bodies.
As UPMC Hamot's regional presence as a tertiary hub has expanded in recent years, it means more acutely ill patients are in need of a higher quality of care. Project 20/20, a seven-story patient tower scheduled to be completed in 2020, will house 64 intensive care beds. In addition, the new patient tower will expand critical care services to include medical, surgical, cardiovascular, neuro and trauma critical care. At $111 million, it will be the biggest capital project in UPMC Hamot's history.
