The McKamish family has a long legacy of charitable giving, which also permeates the corporate culture at McKamish, Inc. We take pride in being a good corporate citizen and are committed to acting responsibly in the communities we serve. Since McKamish Inc. was founded in 1975, our leadership team has made it a priority to donate staff time and millions of dollars to worthwhile causes in our community.
We’ve showcased a couple of recent examples of our corporate responsibility efforts below. McKamish prides itself on superior coordination, teamwork, expertise and advanced technology. The recent projects that McKamish funded for Children’s Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh enabled experts at those institutions to better collaborate, coordinate and advance technologies.
The Heart Institute at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh
McKamish made a recent donation to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to fund technology and equipment upgrades needed in the Heart Institute's conference room. In this conference room, physicians from different disciplines come together to discuss complex cardiac conditions. To be successful, it is critical that they are able to project images in many modalities, including microscope slides, echocardiograms, EKGs, CT scans, and heart catheters. In a field where minute details can mean the difference between life and death, it is vital that these images are shown in the highest resolution. For patients with congenital heart disease, only the most advanced, experienced and comprehensive care will do. McKamish Inc.’s donation provides the physicians at Children’s Hospital with the tools they need to make the best decisions possible for their patients.
University of Pittsburgh’s Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation (MCSI)
The MCSI at the University of Pittsburgh is a center of excellence in sustainable engineering focusing on the design of sustainable neighborhoods. It encourages and nurtures new collaborative projects based on strong and innovative research, and translating the fundamental science of sustainability into real products and processes. Its goal is to create innovations that positively impact the environment and improve quality of life. The McKamish Family MCSI Complex recently was dedicated in the McKamish name. The complex is comprised of a graduate student suite that currently houses 16 active students, a dry lab complex, the Mechanical and Materials Science and Civil and Environmental Engineering Schools, and a conference room for cross-collaborative meetings.
