Our History

Much like your growing family, UPMC Children’s Community Pediatrics has continued to evolve over the past 25 years. What started as just five practice groups coming together to form one network has evolved into more than 55 locations throughout western and central Pennsylvania.

As a part of UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, our practices and technologies have evolved over the years to meet the growing demands of health care today. We take pride in knowing that we offer our patients the very best in standard well and sick care, as well as specialty services.

While we did not always offer these specialty services in-office, UPMC CCP quickly saw the need for continuity of care within our network. We have taken great strides to create services that will fulfill your family’s needs. From Lactation Consulting to a nationally award-winning Behavioral Health Program to Adolescent Medicine, our specialty services allow you to stay within the comfort of a pediatric office while your child receives care for a variety of physical, mental and emotional needs.

In late 2015, UPMC CCP underwent a rigorous, on-site survey from The Joint Commission. During that time, expert surveyors evaluated our compliance with ambulatory care standards in regards to infection prevention, medication management, environment of care, patient safety and more. Upon completion of the survey, UPMC CCP proudly announced that we earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®, demonstrating our compliance with the highest-national standards for safety and quality of care.

From as far north as Erie, to as far east as Harrisburg, and surrounding the heart of where it all began in Pittsburgh, UPMC Children’s Community Pediatrics continues to promise you and your family exceptional pediatric care, right in your community.
