One-stop Shop Expands Health, Wellness Offerings

At the MyHealth@Work Health and Wellness Center in the Medical Arts Building on Fifth Avenue, faculty and staff can seek support for a variety of health and wellness needs. 

Since opening over three years ago, the center has steadily expanded the services it offers: In addition to treatment for minor illnesses, preventative services and health coaching opportunities, Pitt employees can now access comprehensive medication management and financial consultations at the center.


In post-care patient surveys, 93% of respondents reported receiving excellent care and that their overall impression of the center was excellent; 94% said they would recommend the center to their colleagues.

In 2018, the center was recognized nationally for its work to communicate and connect with primary care providers delivering care to their shared patients.

“The additional services in the Medical Arts Building provide a tremendous opportunity for faculty and staff to enhance their wellness and make the most of their experience as a member of the Pitt community. The Benefits Department, and all of OHR, is proud to offer these services in support of the success that the MyHealth@Work Center has had over the last three years,” said John Kozar, assistant vice chancellor of benefits in the Office of Human Resources (OHR).

The center’s convenient location at the heart of the Pittsburgh campus provides the University community with a one-stop shop to encourage wellness and help achieve goals.

Personalized health coaching

One-on-one health coaching is available if you need support getting active, eating healthier, reducing stress, quitting smoking, setting achievable goals or making other healthy lifestyle changes. Health coaching is available at no cost for faculty and staff with UPMC Health Plan coverage and is available in-person, over the phone and online. To schedule a one-on-one appointment, email or call 412-647-1879.

Additionally, health coaching is available for teams or departments. Departmental health coaching can provide a number of benefits, including better focus and concentration, higher energy levels and improved productivity.

Comprehensive medication management

Do you have questions about your medications? Consider meeting with a pharmacist to get your questions answered and develop an action plan to help take better control of your health through the Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM) program. In addition to answering your medication questions, the program also offers pre-travel health consultations, smoking cessation services and diabetes prevention services.

Just like health coaching, comprehensive medication management services are offered at no cost to all regular University faculty and staff with UPMC Health Plan coverage. 

Previously offered at University Pharmacy in Nordenberg Hall, the CMM program is now available for appointments in the Medical Arts Building. To schedule an in-person or a phone appointment — or for an appointment at a location of your choice — email or call 412-383-6337. Read more about the CMM program in @Pitt.

TIAA advice sessions

In addition to the financial consultation sessions held in OHR’s Craig Hall offices, at various buildings on the Pittsburgh and regional campuses and at their Bakery Square location, TIAA also offers one-on-one consulting sessions in the Medical Arts Building. These appointments offer personalized service and assistance to discuss account, investment portfolios and retirement goals. 

To schedule a TIAA advice session, visit or call 800-732-8353.
