UPMC Somerset Hospice House Update

A facility which has been sparking outrage among those in the Somerset County community. Last night, those who want to see the center stay open, gather to try and find ways to save it.

“Hopefully now we have a small committee that will sit. Hopefully UPMC will talk with us. Just explain to us the numbers and what it would take to keep the hospice house open.”

They gathered at the Somerset Events Center to brainstorm ways to save the hospice house after protesters made their voices heard earlier this week outside UPMC Somerset Hospital.

UPMC run facility is set to close its doors August 1st. The hospital’s president, Andy Rusch, says they’re making the move as more people over the years have been requesting at home.
