History of UPMC Chautauqua

Chartered in 1885, the Woman's Christian Association of New York was a boarding house for young working women. It also served as a one room hospital for its residents and other sick or injured persons.

In 1907, "WCA Hospital" incorporated and continued to grow to meet the ever-changing health needs of our community.

And in August 2012, WCA Hospital expanded even more by affiliating with UPMC to become UPMC Chautauqua.
