Our designs helped Penn Medicine transform a two-story windowless big-box retail space into an airy, light-filled facility. In addition to abundant windows, we incorporated a new building façade, roof, and two-story entry. We also replaced and upgraded all building systems, including installing eight new mechanical units, water, fire, gas, and electrical services.

Penn Medicine’s new shared services healthcare model co-locates infusion, lab, primary care, obstetrics, and specialty care exam-based practices within the rejuvenated space. The second floor incorporates a flexible layout with universal exam rooms to support over 20 practices in a collaborative environment, creating better coordination between primary care, specialty care, and diagnostic services. Programs for radiology, radiation oncology, physical therapy, and a retail pharmacy have been included to complement and expand upon previously offered services. Centralized registration streamlines and unifies the patient experience throughout, regardless of service line.

With this new location, Penn Medicine continues to deliver on their vision and promise of being a top healthcare provider.
