IMC Construction broke ground recently on a multispecialty outpatient facility for the University of Pennsylvania Health System. The four-story, 250,000-square-foot center in Radnor further expands Penn Medicine’s services throughout the region.
“This facility will provide exemplary outpatient care and contains all of the services you would find in a hospital setting with the exception of beds for overnight stays,” said Rob Cottone, President and CEO of IMC Construction. “It is a ground-up building, easily accessible by car or public transportation and highly energy efficient.”
The health center and adjacent 994-car parking garage are located at 145 King of Prussia Road, on the former BioMed site and within walking distance of the Radnor train station. Clad in brick masonry and high-performance glass, the building has abundant natural light and views of nature. It is targeted for a sustainability level of LEED Silver.
Penn Medicine Radnor will house a heart and vascular center, comprehensive cancer care, women’s health, orthopedic and rehabilitation medicine, neurosciences and other medical subspecialties, with eighteen different departments within the facility. An outpatient surgery suite includes six surgical and four endoscopy rooms, along with full radiology and laboratory services.
Brandywine Realty Trust will purchase and serve as the designated developer and manager of the site, and develop adjacent office space and a hotel. The outpatient center is expected to be complete in Spring 2020.
