In 1979, then Hamot Hospital constructed a patient tower to position Hamot as a leader in critical care medicine, incorporating innovations that preceded other hospitals by decades, including private rooms and state-of-the-art technologies.
UPMC Hamot’s massive growth has not only led to a reimagination of the original tower, but also to the construction of another pioneering facility — guaranteeing critical care excellence in the Erie region for years to come. Our new Patient Care Tower, a $111 million, seven-story facility will provide unmatched care to meet the growing needs of nearly one million individuals in 13 counties spanning Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.
The Patient Care Tower will deliver technologies and services otherwise unavailable within a 100-mile radius of Erie. A timely advancement, the tower includes a significant expansion of patient rooms with negative airflow capabilities, a vital measure in the case of airborne outbreaks or pandemics.
The Patient Care Tower will provide 24/7/365 access to board-certified intensivists — vastly exceeding the Leapfrog Group’s standard for excellence in intensive care. Other specialists practicing in the facility include board-certified critical care pulmonologists, trauma surgeons, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
The Patient Care Tower is the largest construction project in the 140-year history of UPMC Hamot. Upon completion, UPMC’s total investment in the Erie community will exceed $400 million since affiliation in 2011.
With UPMC Hamot’s Patient Care Tower nearing completion, Hamot Health Foundation is proud to offer a variety of exclusive naming opportunities to supporters of UPMC Hamot.
Donors are able to dedicate a space in the tower to honor their family, memorialize a loved one, or recognize others who have impacted their life, their health, or their career. A custom storyboard placed inside the designated space will provide an opportunity to share the story of those recognized.
