UPMC Hillman Cancer Center
The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center network (50 locations in the U.S. and Europe) ensures highest standards of care to over 74,000 patients every year. UPMC Hillman Cancer Center partners with the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, which generated over 5,000 research publications in the last five years, and received $140 million in research funding in FY 2014.
Being part of this network allows every center of the UPMC network, including UPMC San Pietro FBF, to be involved in research initiatives that ensure the ongoing development of treatment techniques.
The whole team at UPMC San Pietro FBF was trained in Pittsburgh and acquired extended practice and expertise in advanced radiotherapy techniques, and quality and safety standards. In addition, thanks to state-of-the-art telemedicine systems, our specialists can share daily experience and clinical cases with their colleagues in Europe and the United States. This model of communication and collaboration allows our Center to rely on the experience of one of the most extensive stereotactic surgery programs in the world, whilst guaranteeing patients the best results and the quality and safety standards of the UPMC cancer centers. UPMC’s cancer program is consistently placed on the U.S. News & World Reports “Best of Best” cancer programs in the United States.
UPMC Italy is the Italian division of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

For over 20 years, UPMC Italy has been managing ISMETT IRCCS a government-approved research hospital and a center for organ transplants and highly specialized therapies. Located in Palermo, ISMETT-IRCCS serves patients from countries throughout the Mediterranean region. ISMETT-IRCCS hosts 78 inpatients beds and 8 Day Hospital beds, plus 4 operating rooms. Since the very first liver transplant performed in Sicily, in 1999, over 2,000 transplants have been performed at ISMETT.
In partnership with the Italian government, the Sicilian regional government, the Italian National Research Council (CNR), and the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC is a founding member of the Ri.MED Foundation and involved in the realization of the Biomedical Research and Biotechnology Center (BRBC) in Carini, near Palermo. With its over 600 researchers, technicians, and administrative staff, the BRBC will become a center of reference for biotechnology research.
In partnership with Terme di Chianciano, Siena’s Local Health Authority, UPMC, and the Municipality of Chianciano Terme, UPMC Italy created, in 2014, UPMC Institute for Health an advanced and integrated center for preventive medicine for hepato-bilio-pancreatic and gastrointestinal pathologies, cardiac diseases, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. The Center offers innovative and customized screening programs, laboratory and imaging tests (EKG, elastometry, ultrasound), specialty consults (hepatology, cardiology, diabetology, dermatology, psychology, nutritional programs), digestive endoscopy services (gastroscopy, colonoscopy, video colonoscopy capsule) and innovative procedures (Endobarrier®, a new treatment for type 2 diabetes and obesity). The Center has also established an innovative and highly specialized facility for exercise and rehabilitation offering personalized physical activity plans for the prevention of cardiovascular, hepatic, and metabolic diseases.
Since 2017 UPMC Italy manages the UPMC | Salvator Mundi International Hospital carrying out investments and collaborations in the field of private health care that will benefit Italian and foreign patients. The goal is to enhance and expand the offer across multiple specialties (e.g., advanced surgery, emergency medicine, oncology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, physiotherapy, rehabilitation), using new technologies and innovative approaches such as, for example, regenerative medicine. In particular, an integrated Oncology Center will be created and linked to the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center network. In line with the professional experience of UPMC, the plan is to launch new programs and to improve the existing ones, including thoracic and abdominal minimally invasive surgical oncology, interventional radiology, and oncology interventional digestive endoscopy. The oncology clinical offer will be complemented by immuno-oncology therapies and a new oncology genomics service, indispensable to support therapeutic decisions with a personalized medicine approach. All aspects related to the prevention and early diagnosis of oncological diseases will also be developed, and a new dedicated program of Integrative Medicine in Oncology, one of the first in Europe, will be launched.
In 2018, UPMC Italy realized in Mirabella Eclano (Campania), in collaboration with Casa di Cura Villa Maria, the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at Villa Maria, an advanced radiotherapy center offering treatments for primary tumors, secondary (metastatic) or recurrent tumors in all parts of the body.
