PITTSBURGH, May 25, 2023 - UPMC Children's Hospital Foundation announced today a $7.5 million gift from Acrisure, making it the largest corporate gift ever received by the foundation.

The gift will support the Heart Institute at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, which is one of the top-ranked cardiology and heart surgery programs in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report.

"This is a significant milestone for the foundation, the hospital, and most importantly, for the children and families receiving care within the Heart Institute," said Rachel Petrucelli, president of UPMC Children's Hospital Foundation. "Acrisure's decision to help our hospital advance care and cures for heart patients was made with the utmost care, and with a sincere ambition to make a positive difference in people's lives."

The investment from Acrisure will enable the Heart Institute to elevate clinical care, research, and the patient experience for children and families who live locally, and for families from around the world who travel to UPMC for the expertise of the Heart Institute.

"We look forward to a longstanding collaboration with Acrisure in support of our commitment to make our Heart Institute the preeminent center in the world for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with congenital heart disease, as well as a leading institution for training future pediatric physicians," said Victor Morell, M.D., chief of cardiothoracic surgery of UPMC Children's.

"This contribution reflects our commitment to be impactful in Pittsburgh," said Greg Williams, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Acrisure. "Supporting the hospital's mission of advancing pediatric medicine through groundbreaking research, innovative treatments and compassionate care aligns perfectly with our values. We hope we can be an accelerant to this important work for many years to come."

The Heart Institute at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh is a leader of cardiovascular care, with a rich history in clinical research and innovation, offering comprehensive care to over 17,000 patients with congenital conditions throughout their lives, from prenatal through adulthood. As a comprehensive pediatric heart transplantation center, and a national leader in the use of pediatric heart-assist devices, the Heart Institute at UPMC Children's continues to advance the field of cardiovascular medicine.
