UPMC Shadyside had its beginnings in 1866 as Homeopathic Medical and Surgical Hospital and Dispensary in downtown Pittsburgh. In 1884 it moved to a new building, again downtown. The same year, the hospital established western Pennsylvania’s first school of nursing. In 1896, the hospital pioneered the first x-ray in western Pennsylvania. It was also among the first to use Joseph Lister’s antiseptic techniques for surgery.
