Brandywine Breaks Ground On Penn Medicine-Anchored Development In Radnor

The University of Pennsylvania Health System continues to adapt to meet the shifting nature of the healthcare market.

Penn Medicine broke ground in early November on a four-story, 250K SF outpatient facility on 145 King of Prussia Road in Radnor. The building, expected to be complete in 2020, will replace the Penn Medicine building that has been on the site since 1997.

Brandywine Realty Trust is leading the development on two lots at 145 and 250 King of Prussia, including the Penn Medicine facility, a 994-car parking garage and further mixed-use components. IMC Construction is the project's construction manager and Ballinger is the architect.

The medical office building will sit on the eastern portion of the site, while Brandywine plans a 150K SF office building and a 100-room, 75K SF hotel in the western portion. With the medical building being outpatient-only, Penn Medicine expects it to be "a destination for patients traveling for specialized outpatient services from outside the area," according to a press release.

“More than half of our activity comes from outpatient care today, and we’re committed to investing in the very best facilities which can offer our patients more options to get the best possible care close to their homes,” Penn Medicine CEO Ralph Muller said in a statement. 

The LEED Silver building is planned to include cancer treatment services such as radiation and chemotherapy, and cardiovascular, neuroscience, orthopedic and primary care. It will also contain six same-day-surgery operating rooms and four endoscopy rooms, along with radiology and laboratory services. Penn Medicine also plans to conduct some clinical trials at the facility.

Brandywine has not disclosed details regarding the construction timeline for the office and hotel portions of the development.
