High-flying UPMC

So UPMC can afford the leasing costs and upkeep expenses for its new stealth corporate jet, which will total millions a year, thanks to the "positive cash flow from UPMC's international operations" ("New Jet to Fly UPMC Corporate Flag," Oct. 25). UPMC attorneys have insisted in court that their client has no employees.

One wonders how any corporate concern could generate such ample funds without employees. Might it be more appropriate for entities under UPMC's purview, such as Shadyside Hospital, Children's Hospital and Magee-Womens Hospital, to each get its own modest Piper Jetprop? After all, these facilities really do have employees whose labor generates the "positive cash flow" for such expenses.
