McKeesport police missed the security breach? They run the UPMC hospital under a 5 year contract,$425,000 a year to get in your medical business. Several breaches occurred while the McKeesport police were on duty at UPMC McKeesport.

McKeesport is pinpointed for that type of service because McKeesport is crime ridden.

McKeesport Police Department is entering into a contract for an around-the-clock presence at the city's hospital.

Council on Monday authorized city administrators to execute a five-year agreement with UPMC McKeesport at an annual rate of $425,000 with 3 percent increases over a minimum of three years. McKeesport police would be on-site 24 hours a day, seven days per week.

“I think it's a great opportunity to continue our community partnership with UPMC,” Mayor Michael Cherepko said.“It's important for the residents to know that we meet on a regular basis with UPMC. We recognize the importance of having them as the largest employer in our city, and we look forward to working with them on a whole new level with this (agreement).”

Council president Darryl Segina said the UPMC McKeesport agreement is one local example of contracts being established at all UPMC facilities with various police departments.

“I don't want people to think that McKeesport is pinpointed for this type of service,” Segina said.

District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s office has been working with UPMC's leadership to develop increased security and safety plans for the corporation's hospitals and medical centers.

“It's all of UPMC,” Cherepko explained.“The district attorney came out a few months back with (security concerns) in light of some of the incidents that were happening in some of the hospitals.”

UPMC McKeesport administrators said they are looking forward to a new type of partnership with the city, but deferred comment on the agreement to corporate offices in Pittsburgh. Director of Media Relations Gloria Kreps confirmed the UPMC McKeesport contract with local police, but had no further details on the agreement at presstime.

UPMC McKeesport is losing business to other hospitals anyway.

Never a comeback for failing McKeesport.
