Building Boom: State-of-the-art Facilities Built with Families in Mind

Published on in CHOP Family News

Children and families are the big winners in the building boom in the CHOP Care Network.

If your child needs to see a pediatric specialist, you have new, big, bright, family-friendly options in Philadelphia and throughout the region. Four state-of-the-art buildings opened recently or will welcome patients later this summer. Families weighed in on the designs, so you can rest assured the facilities were built with your kids in mind. Here’s the latest:

  • Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric CareAt the end of July, the first specialty practices will begin moving into the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care, the 12-story, 700,000-square-foot, can’t-miss building on Main Campus across Civic Center Drive from Children’s Seashore House on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus. Each month, additional specialty practices will relocate from their current locations in the Richard D. Wood Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center. Before your child's next appointment, you’ll learn where to bring your child. There is also parking under the Buerger Center.
  • In late July, the Chadds Ford and Springfield specialty care centers will combine in a new, 44,000-square-foot building at 819 Baltimore Pike, Glen Mills, PA,(near the Route 322 and Route 1 intersection) and be renamed the Brandywine Valley Specialty Care Center. It offers expanded services, including an Ambulatory Surgery Center that relocated from Exton. (All other services currently at the Exton Specialty Care Center will remain there.)
  • In May, the King of Prussia Specialty Care Center — along with Urgent Care, the Pediatric Imaging Center and Home Care — moved to a new home on 550 S. Goddard Blvd., King of Prussia, PA. The 135,000-square-foot facility combines all services available in the former two buildings and adds additional services, including a new Ambulatory Surgery Center.
  • In January, CHOP relocated its Princeton Specialty Care Center to 101 Plainsboro Road, Princeton, NJ, on the campus of the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro. The 25,000-square-foot facility continues all its former services and additional services and testing.
