UPMC constructing pneumatic tubes to link hospitals to new lab
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, October 29, 2012
UPMC is spending $45 million to create a new centralized lab in Oakland that will be served by the age-technology of pneumatic tubes. The underground tubes will connect Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC to the new lab in the former Rangos Research Center building. The tubes will stretch two blocks, or about 300 yards, from the hospital, the first time in the region where they will run the tubes farther than just the building next door.
