Childrens's Hospital Getting Major Renovation

The Philadelphia Business Journal reports the biggest excavation project in Philadelphia history is taking place in West Philadelphia.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is spending $150 million preparing part of the old Civic Center site for an outpatient-care center that will sit on top of a five-story underground parking garage. The pediatric medical center’s expansion plans for ambulatory care, however, extend far beyond the city.

In an interview last week, CHOP President and CEO Dr. Steven Altschuler said in order to thrive under health-care reform, through which the government is shifting from a fee-for-service to risk-based model of paying providers, the hospital is planning to significantly enhance where and how it provides outpatient care.

CHOP’s board in September approved a $2 billion spending plan that includes, in addition to the 500,000-square-foot outpatient-care center at its main campus, a new ambulatory-care center in King of Prussia, where two existing care sites will be consolidated, and another in Central Jersey, where CHOP plans to open a facility on the campus of Princeton HealthCare System’s new $450 million hospital in Plainsboro.

The King of Prussia center will be part of the Village at Valley Forge, a new development on Swedesford Road near a new Pennsylvania Turnpike ramp at the Valley Forge exit. The facility will initially be about 100,000 square feet, and have the ability to expand based on demand.

The outpatient center at Princeton HealthCare’s new Plainsboro hospital will start out at 25,000 square feet and have the ability to expand to 100,000 square feet.

CHOP also plans to expand and renovate its existing specialty care and ambulatory surgery centers it operates in Voorhees, N.J., and Chalfont.
