In late January, many Penn Medicine employees braved the cold to sign two steel beams situated in a parking lot across from Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. One beam will sit atop the Pavilion for Advanced Care (at 38th and Powelton Streets), while the other will top Penn Medicine University City (at 3737 Market Street).
The six-story Pavilion for Advanced Care is slated to for completion in November 2014, with move-in and patient occupancy to begin in early 2015. At 13 stories, Penn Medicine University City will house eight floors of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center’s newest space for ambulatory care as well as new clinical practices for Surgery, Neurosciences, Allergy and Immunology, the Musculoskeletal Center, and Otorhinolaryngology, along with a six-OR Ambulatory Surgery Facility, Outpatient Lab and Radiology. Penn Medicine University City is scheduled to open next summer, with patient care starting in August 2014.
