At Having outgrown an ambulatory care facility with inadequate ceiling heights and disorganized layouts, Penn Medicine sought to build a new ambulatory care center in the suburbs of Philadelphia, designed for regeneration of both the site and human health.
Sustainability and enhancing the experience of patients, visitors and staff were critical concerns. The project is the latest among Penn Medicine’s expanding list of multi-specialty ambulatory centers aimed at bringing convenient care closer to patients and families.
Double the size of the existing Penn Medicine location in Radnor, the new facility provides comprehensive cancer care, including radiation oncology services and chemotherapy, as well as primary care, heart and vascular, orthopedic and neuroscience cxare. The clinical program includes six operating rooms and four endoscopy suites, along with full laboratory services.
Inspired by environmental stewardship and biophilia, the design embraces nature, physically and philosophically. By blurring the distinction between indoors and outdoors, the building promotes healing and wellness for patients, and transforms a brownfield site into a lush community resource.
The mixed-use campus will also include an office building, hotel and parking garage, cohesively designed with shared assets and complementary uses. The design of the parcel flips the former office park model, placing buildings at the periphery of the site and eliminating surface parking. Garages bring staff and visitors closer to their destinations and preserve large portions of the parcel for lush green spaces.
