Coun­cil to vote on UPMC ex­pan­sion in Mon­roeville

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - - Local News -

Mon­roeville Coun­cil will vote Tues­day on whether to ap­prove a plan to ex­pand the emer­gency depart­ment at UPMC East in Mon­roeville by nearly 30,000 square feet.

Dur­ing coun­cil’s agen­daset­ting meet­ing Thurs­day, land­scape ar­chi­tect Jon Sw­erin­gen showed mem­bers a draw­ing of the pro­posal.

He said the 29,751-square­foot ad­di­tion, which would be built on cur­rent park­ing spa­ces, would not quite dou­ble the size of the emer­gency depart­ment.

Mr. Sw­erin­gen said there has been “a sig­nif­i­cant need” to ex­pand the depart­ment.

The Mon­roeville Plan­ning Com­mis­sion has rec­om­mended that coun­cil ap­prove the pro­posal.
