The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority has been involved in the design and construction of the Vision and Rehabilitation Center at the UPMC Mercy campus. We are currently working with onsite contractors to oversee the relocation of public infrastructure for the project. This includes relocating a public combination sewer and a temporary waterline installation to service a residence during the construction period.
The new facility will provide innovative equipment and practices aimed at helping patients with vision impairment and eye disease. The 18-story facility will connect to the existing hospital through the construction of a bridge tower that will also have a rehabilitation garden for patients. The project is scheduled to be fully operational in 2023.
