The Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pediatric Care Center provides high quality primary care services to the children of West Philadelphia.
Through a generous donation by Athena and Nicholas Karabots, we were able to open the Karabots Center in 2013. This primary care location allows Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to have a positive impact on children in our own backyard by providing pediatric care and sharing health resources. We also work closely with the West Philadelphia community and its leaders in order to best meet the needs of families in the area.
The two-story, 52,000-square-foot, environmentally sustainable building contains 56 child-friendly examination rooms.
