Pittsburgh Area Regional COVID-19 Health Care Collaboration

To augment the ongoing individual site preparations and to bolster the governmental efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic needs in our region, a group of senior physician leaders from our regional health systems and hospitals are meeting on a scheduled basis. This frequent communication in this rapidly evolving time allows the group to learn from each other, share important clinical and operational concerns, better address site or community needs, and ensure that knowledge is accurate and available.  This effort underscores the dedication to our mission – serving those with needs when they have those needs.  

Participating leaders include:

·         Don Whiting, MD AHN

·         David Rottinghaus, MD  Butler Health System

·         Carol Fox, MD  Excela Health System

·         Michael Cratty, MD  Heritage Valley Health System

·         John Sullivan, MD  St Clair Hospital

·         Donald M. Yealy, MD – UPMC

·         John Six MD,  Washington Hospital System
