Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Designated as a Live Well Allegheny Workplace

October 25, 2017

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC has been designated as a Live Well Allegheny Workplace from the Allegheny County Health Department, which aims to improve the health and well-being of Allegheny County residents.

 Children’s Hospital moved to a new campus in May 2009, and developed a “green” campus with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification for the main hospital and John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center. The buildings incorporate natural light and utilize energy, water, materials and land as efficiently as possible.

In addition, more than 30 measures were used to design a quiet hospital, which includes acoustic ceiling tile in lieu of hard ceilings, special use of carpeting and door seals, silent notification for nurse call through integration of wireless communication devices and use of personal communication devices in lieu of overhead paging.

At the main hospital, all employees have access to the Children’s Fitness Center. A Wellness Committee, comprised of employees, offers educational sessions on a variety of health-related topics and events. The committee also encourages all employees to take regular walks around the campus daily.
