UPMC Italy is the Italian division of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).
UPMC Italy operates in the scope of patient care, biomedical research and telemedicine, and develops new technology solutions providing support in areas directly and indirectly related to medicine and research.
For twenty years UPMC Italy has been managing ISMETT, a center of excellence in the field of organ transplantation and highly-specialized therapies. Located in Palermo, ISMETT is a government-approved research hospital (Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico – IRCCS), which serves patients from countries throughout the Mediterranean region. ISMETT hosts 78 beds, 4 operating rooms and 8 day hospital beds. Since the very first liver transplant performed in Sicily, in 1999, over 2,000 transplants have been performed at ISMETT.
In partnership with the Italian government, the Sicilian regional government, the Italian National Research Council (CNR), and the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC supports the Ri.MED Foundation established to promote, support, and start-up biotechnology and biomedicine research projects transferring innovative outcomes to clinical practice. UPMC Italy’s collaboration with Ri.MED is primarily focused on the creation of a Biomedical Research and Biotechnological Center (BRBC) in Carini, near Palermo. With its over 600 researchers, technicians and administrative staff the BRBC will become a center of reference for biotechnology research.
In collaboration with San Pietro Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Rome, UPMC Italy opened the UPMC San Pietro FBF Advanced Radiotherapy Center offering innovative radiotherapy treatment and advanced care oncology protocols.
Since 2017 UPMC Italy manages the UPMC | Salvator Mundi International Hospital carrying out investments and collaborations in the field of private health care that will benefit Italian and foreign patients. The goal is to enhance and expand the offer across multiple specialties (e.g., advanced surgery, emergency medicine, oncology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, physiotherapy, rehabilitation), using new technologies and innovative approaches such as, for example, regenerative medicine. In particular, an integrated Oncology Center will be created and linked to the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center network. In line with the professional experience of UPMC, the plan is to launch new programs and to improve the existing ones, including thoracic and abdominal minimally invasive surgical oncology, interventional radiology, and oncology interventional digestive endoscopy. The oncology clinical offer will be complemented by immuno-oncology therapies and a new oncology genomics service, indispensable to support therapeutic decisions with a personalized medicine approach. All aspects related to the prevention and early diagnosis of oncological diseases will also be developed, and a new dedicated program of Integrative Medicine in Oncology, one of the first in Europe, will be launched.
In 2018, UPMC Italy realized in Mirabella Eclano (Campania), in collaboration with Casa di Cura Villa Maria, the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at Villa Maria, an advanced radiotherapy center offering treatments for primary tumors, secondary (metastatic) or recurrent tumors in all parts of the body.
