At Pittsburgh Mercy, we’re committed to creating an environment free of hazards for colleagues in and visitors to our facilities.
To help us ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone, we’ve established and implemented safety standards and best practices at every location. Each of our facilities has information about emergency procedures. All of our colleagues are trained on the best ways to protect our facilities, visitors, and each other. Safety is a shared responsibility in which each and every colleague must take ownership of his or her own safety and the safety of our colleagues and visitors.
Our Priorities Around Safety
