Scope and Content Notes:

Subseries 14 contains correspondence, memoranda, articles, newspaper clippings, press releases, and other records covering Elsie Hillman’s involvement in the planning and establishment of the Hillman Cancer Center in addition to her prior involvement with Shadyside Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI). Hillman served on the board of Shadyside Hospital up until the acquisition of Shadyside Hospital by UPMC in 1996. Hillman was also involved with the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, a regional cancer care and research consortium. Her involvement with UPMC increased further with the establishment of the Hillman Cancer Center, the flagship center for the UPCI. The center, located in Shadyside, began construction in 1999 and was opened in 2002. As a result, there are a number of files relating to the planning of the opening ceremonies and events associated with the Hillman Cancer Center.
