$200M Outpatient Center Breaks Ground in PA

The new medical facility will be LEED Silver-certified and will double the square footage of Penn Medicine's previous Radnor location.

Penn Medicine, a University of Pennsylvania division, has broken ground on a four-story, 250,000-square-foot multispecialty outpatient facility in Radnor, Pa. The development is slated to open in spring 2020.

The $200 million facility, to be built on two sites at 145 and 250 King of Prussia Road, will be developed and managed by Brandywine Realty Trust. The project will double the square footage of the previous location—which has operated since 1997—and is designed to include office space and a 100-key hotel on the western portion of the property.

Advanced care

The new facility will provide comprehensive cancer care, including newly available radiation oncology services and chemotherapy provided by the Abramson Cancer Center, as well as primary care, heart and vascular, orthopedic and neuroscience care. Additional services will include same-day surgery, with six operating rooms and four endoscopy suites, along with full radiology and laboratory services. The building is aiming to achieve LEED Silver certification, featuring natural light throughout and a building design that wraps around a courtyard.

“More than half of our activity comes from outpatient care today,” Ralph Muller, CEO of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, said in prepared remarks. “Our mission is to offer Penn Medicine care to patients where it’s most convenient to them and their families, so we’re making more cancer, women’s health and cardiac services available to patients at Radnor to ensure they can receive a more comprehensive suite of care without having to travel downtown.”
