Doctors' move led to lockout at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, March 21, 2008
A month after giving notice that they were moving their UPMC Mercy practice to rival West Penn Hospital, six obstetrics/gynecology physicians abruptly were locked out of their University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-owned offices. During the next month, the doctors' patients did not know how to contact them, the doctors did not have new offices ready to see patients and UPMC prevented them from telling their patients what had happened. Patients are now decrying UPMC for not allowing physicians to contact them.
