UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital will have a new president in May.

It will be a homecoming for Deborah Brodine, who started her career 25 years ago at the hospital in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood.

“I am very eager and honored to partner with the other members of this incredible and talented team to continue our mission and grow our legacy,” Brodine said in a news release.

She now serves as president of UPMC Community Provider Services.

Brodine will maintain the leadership position of some UPMC Community Provider Services divisions, the hospital said and also will remain as president of UPMC Senior Services, where she will continue to oversee UPMC Senior Communities and UPMC Home Healthcare and hospice services.

UPMC executive Leslie C. Davis touted Brodine’s long career and said she will “expertly lead and oversee the growth of UPMC’s behavioral health services” in the new position, according to a news release.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
