Timothy L. Mangis, 49, of Imperial, Pa., pleaded guilty to one count before Senior United States District Judge Maurice B. Cohill.
In connection with the guilty plea, Mangis, as a former Facilities Director at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, used a UPMC credit card to obtain merchandise for himself, including auto repair services for his car, building materials and appliances, and electronic equipment at retailers such as Pep Boys, Lowe's, Home Depot and Best Buy.
