Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, February 2, 2012

But growth came at a cost, as Western Pennsylvania's dominant hospital system on Wednesday reported lower operating income for the quarter, because of rising expenses. Robert DeMichiei, UPMC's chief financial officer, said that UPMC is growing even as the overall market for medical procedures is shrinking.
