Issue Date: 
March 28, 2016

The University of Pittsburgh will open a walk-in health and wellness center for Pitt faculty and staff in the Medical Arts Building, 3708 Fifth Avenue, Oakland.

Named MyHealth@Work, the center is set to open in early April and will be staffed and operated by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Health services will be provided by a certified registered nurse practitioner, a nurse, and a medical assistant. The clinic will offer basic primary care services, including treatment for such conditions as acute bronchitis, fever, influenza, headaches, allergies, minor cuts, and sinusitis.

MyHealth@Work will also offer a wellness component, said John Kozar, Pitt’s assistant vice chancellor, human resources. UPMC Health Plan and Pitt’s benefits department will collaborate with schools within the University to create programs that promote wellness and improve health outcomes. 

MyHealth@Work is for the exclusive use of University of Pittsburgh faculty and staff classified as regular full-time or part-time employees. Appointments are not required and use of the clinic is free of charge. There are no copayments or coinsurance charges. 

The center is designed to complement—not replace—the care of primary care physicians. MyHealth@Work will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

Tours of the clinic will be offered Thursday, April 28. Additional information will be provided by the Pitt Office of Human Resources’ benefits department.
