The ACE award honors staff who exemplify UPMC’s five core values — Quality & Safety, Dignity & Respect, Caring & Listening, Responsibility & Integrity, Excellence & Innovation. These life changers exceed the high level of service that patients, members, and the community have come to expect from UPMC.

Each year, fewer than one percent of UPMC staff from across the health system receive this honor.

The winners will be honored at a special recognition event Saturday, November 3 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.
