Southside Sports Facility Renamed UPMC Rooney Sports Complex

On Tuesday, November 17, 2015, UPMC and the Pittsburgh Steelers announced the extension of their partnership for an additional 15 years. In addition, the UPMC Sports Complex will be renamed the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex. This new name honors Ambassador Dan Rooney, chairman of the Pittsburgh Steelers and one of the most beloved and respected men in the world of football. Mr. Rooney has made considerable contributions to both the community and team during his tenure.

The new name reflects UPMC and UPMC Sports Medicine’s commitment to our community as well as our mission to provide a wide range of world-class care for professional and amateur athletes as well as active individuals. UPMC Health Plan will become the exclusive health insurance provider of the team and the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex will continue to provide the day-to-day care of Steelers players. In addition to the Steelers, UPMC Sports Medicine continues to provide care for many collegiate and high school athletic programs.

The sports medicine program was first established by Dr. Fu in 1986 in a modest space located in the Iroquois Building, and it would relocate in 1988 to a building at Baum Boulevard and Craig Street. As the sports medicine program continued to expand, Dr. Fu envisioned the design and construction of a state-of-the-art sports medicine complex and the current UPMC Sports Performance Complex opened in October 2000 on the South Side. A second location, the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, opened in August 2015 in Cranberry. Dr. Christopher Harner was appointed the first Medical Director of the Southside facility in 1998. Presently, Dr. Volker Musahl serves as Medical Director for the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, and Dr. Vonda Wright serves as Medical Director for the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.

For over 30 years, UPMC Sports Medicine continues to provide comprehensive sports medicine centers providing top-notch clinical care, teaching, and research, and has been an important part in the urban renewal and revitalization of Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. The Southside facility has attracted more than 800 visiting surgeons and fellows from 50 countries and six continents. The UPMC Rooney Sports Complex will continue to be a premier destination for athletes worldwide.

UPMC Sports Medicine is grateful for this opportunity to honor Ambassador Dan Rooney and for our continued association with the Rooney family and is extremely proud of the continued partnership between the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, UPMC, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
