Passavant Hospital Foundation


Matt Morrow, 51, is a senior manager in Information Technology at UPMC Passavant. He has worked at the hospital for 18 years, so when he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer two years ago, there was never any doubt where he would seek treatment.  “Like the commercials say, ‘I didn’t choose to get cancer, but I did choose UPMC,’” he says. “The people here are like family to me, and this is my second home.”  Since his diagnosis, Matt has endured 37 chemotherapy treatments, each lasting upwards of five hours.  “I’ve worked at the hospital all these years but now I realize what the patients go through,” he said.
