UPMC officials gathered for a virtual ribbon cutting Tuesday afternoon for the UPMC Magee-Womens Specialty Services at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.

The facility expansion now provides women in all stages of life with access to clinical experts and the latest technology within UPMC in a single location.

“It's convenient,” said Dr. Robert Edwards, chairman of women's health services for UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. “This center is a landmark, new initiative.”

Dr. Richard Beigi, president of UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital, said the facility is particularly instrumental because it provides women with a variety of coverage.

Aside from annual visits, women can also use Magee-Womens for prenatal care and fertility treatments; OB/GYN services; on-site breast cancer diagnostics, care and imaging; and perimenopause and menopause services, among others.

“This is one-stop shopping,” Beigi said, “right here in Cranberry.”

UPMC leaders said Tuesday the Lemieux complex proximity to Interstate 79 and major arteries such as Routes 19 and 228 make it accessible to much of the greater Pittsburgh region and as far east as Central Pennsylvania.

According to information released by UPMC, Magee-Womens Specialty Services partners with the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and coordinates with surgeons and teams from UPMC Passavant.

UPMC Children's Express Care also offers an after-hours clinic inside the Lemieux complex.

Both Edwards and Beigi expressed their excitement Tuesday about the expansion.

“Women's health is the key to a healthy population and a healthy society,” Edwards said.

More information about Magee-Womens in the Lemieux complex can be found on the UPMC website.
