Construction is underway on the $200 million replacement for Penn Medical’s outpatient facility in Radnor Township.
The new 250,000-square-foot, four-story medical center will be roughly twice the size of the system’s current outpatient hospital, according to The Inquirer. Not only will the facility provide primary care, but will also provide multi-specialty medical services in such fields as heart and vascular, orthopedics, oncology, and neuroscience.
The building will meet LEED Silver certification, and will incorporate natural elements — a central courtyard and natural light — for the benefit of patients, their families and visitors. The project will also feature a 1,000-car parking structure. IMC Construction, based in Malvern, Pennsylvania, is the general contractor.
Penn has partnered with Brandywine Realty Trust to build a 150,000-square-foot office building and 75,000-square-foot, 100-room hotel nearby, turning the medical center into a mixed-use campus. The system’s plans also include medical offices on the east side of the new outpatient facility.
