Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Opens Expanded Specialty Care Center in Erie at New Location

September 2, 2015

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC will open an expanded specialty care center in Erie next week. The new center, located on the first floor of UPMC Hamot Women's Hospital, opens on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

The new Children's Hospital Specialty Care Center Erie site offers increased access to Children’s experts for families in the Erie region because of its new location and increased clinic space.

Children’s Hospital Specialty Care Center Erie previously had been located at the Shriners Hospitals for Children®, with a temporary move to CCP-Hamot Pediatrics, during construction of the new location.

Pediatric experts from Children’s main campus in Pittsburgh will travel to Erie on a regular basis to provide improved access to subspecialty care. Outpatient services that will be offered at the new location are:

  • Allergy
  • Diabetes
  • Endocrinology
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Pulmonary Medicine
  • Tele-Nutrition Program

“Children’s is committed to providing families from Erie with world class pediatric care that is convenient and close to home,” said Nick Barcellona, vice president and chief financial officer, Pediatric Academic and Clinical Service Line at Children's Hospital. “We have a large presence in Erie, ranging from our Express Care Center on Peach Street and three Children’s Community Pediatrics practices in the area, so as the need for pediatric services has increased, we recognized that we needed to move to this new location to accommodate families.”

In addition to the new location in Erie, Children’s operates four other specialty care centers in Chippewa, Hermitage, Johnstown and Wheeling.
