Here's another sign that a local hospital and its doctors have become part of the largest health system in Western Pennsylvania.
Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has confirmed that pediatricians at Blair Medical will become part of UPMC'S network of pediatricians on October 1.
Children's Community Pediatrics includes 120 pediatricians in 30 locations and is the largest pediatric and adolescent care network in Western Pa. The local group will be called C.C.P. Altoona.
UPMC took over Altoona Regional Health System in July.
