Bret Schroeder, healthcare expert at PA Consulting Group, is quoted in a Pittsburgh Business Times cover story regarding UPMC’s expansion in Pennsylvania. The article discusses UPMC’s acquisition of Pinnacle Health Systems and potential growth areas.
With UPMC’s acquisition of Pinnacle Health Systems, their footprint now extends to less than 100 miles from Philadelphia. Bret says: “This is a classic foot-in-the-door technique to the eastern part of the state.”
Bret adds that UPMC’s strategy is a textbook case of market expansion: "The bigger you are, the easier it is to basically compete.”
