UPMC Altoona is a Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation accredited level 2 trauma center, regional oncology center, and a Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Center. UPMC Altoona provides comprehensive cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, behavioral health, a vascular and wound care center, and an Institute for Sleep Medicine.
