Welcome to the new UPMC Altoona Foundation website. We hope you will find our new enhanced web presence more appealing and easier to use. We are adding photos of our events so our friends and supporters can get a glimpse of the fun events the Foundation sponsors, all of which raise funds to support UPMC Altoona.

We will also use this page to provide monthly updates on fundraising progress and stories of the impact of the generosity of you, our friends and supporters.

Thank you for all that you do to support UPMC Altoona and our Foundation.

UPMC Altoona
Birthing Center

The UPMC Altoona Birthing Center serves nearly 1,000 families and newborns each year. These newborns are our children, grandchildren, and sometimes great-grandchildren.

Gail Irwin, Dr. Patricia Hoyne, and Dr. Rakesh Chopra are heading a campaign to raise funds to renew and upgrade the Birthing Center.

All gifts to the Birthing Center will help us continue to provide the community with leading-edge maternity services.
