Asbury Heights, home to 500 seniors and provider of a range of care options, recently became affiliated with University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Senior Communities, enhancing accessibility to resources for residents and staff.
Designed to provide both independent and assisted living, nursing and memory care, the South Hills facility joins a network overseeing over 3,400 western Pennsylvania residents. UPMC plans to outlay at least $10 million over the next five years, enabling site and technology upgrades and supporting ongoing staff development.
“I am delighted that UPMC Senior Communities was selected as Asbury Heights’ partner,” John Zanardelli, executive consultant for UPMC Senior Communities, said in a press release. “It is now affiliated with one of the leading medical providers in the country. I eagerly look forward to the support our exceptional care teams will gain and the enhanced innovations our services and residents will benefit from through this partnership.”
UPMC’s Deborah Brodine said Asbury Heights’ decision to choose UPMC was unanimous and increases UPMC Senior Communities’ reach to 15 campuses in seven counties.
“UPMC’s proven performance as a national academic medical center leader will enable Asbury Heights to continually advance services and enhance amenities for its residents,” Brodine said in the release, noting that Asbury Heights will maintain an independent board of directors.
