Penn Medicine has broken ground on a $200m multi-specialty outpatient facility in Radnor, Pennsylvania, US, which will offer more options for patients to receive advanced care.
The site, set to open in 2020, will house the new Penn Medicine Radnor, replacing the current facility in the Township, which has been operational since 1997 on King of Prussia Road.
The new 250,000ft² centre will provide cancer care, including radiation oncology services and chemotherapy provided by the Abramson Cancer Center, as well as primary care, heart and vascular, orthopaedic and neuroscience care.
The four-storey centre will also offer additional services such as same-day surgery, with six operating rooms and four endoscopy suites, in addition to full radiology and laboratory services.
More patients will have access to Penn Medicine clinical trials without having to travel into Philadelphia.
Brandywine Realty Trust has entered into an agreement with University of Pennsylvania Health System to purchase and serve as the designated developer and manager of two sites in Radnor where the new outpatient facility is being constructed.
The new buildings will be transformed into high-quality facilities, including office space and a hotel.
Brandywine will serve as the development manager of the medical office building, which is expected to enable Penn to expand its network and serve even more locations.
The LEED Silver certified building has been designed to allow natural light throughout. The building design wraps around a courtyard, which will bring nature views to patients, families and staff inside.
The western section of 145 King of Prussia Road will offer 150,000GSF of office space and a hotel component comprising 75,000GSF, with nearly 100 rooms.
The eastern portion of 145 King of Prussia Road will serve as a medical office parcel.
Other sites of Penn Medicine include: Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, Penn Medicine University City and Washington Square in Philadelphia, as well as facilities in Bucks County, Valley Forge, Southern Chester County (West Grove) and, in Southern New Jersey, Cherry Hill and Woodbury Heights.
