Penn Medicine in partnership with Anchor Health Properties, a full-service healthcare development company, has announced the opening of Penn Medicine Southern Chester County, a 72,000-square foot healthcare facility in West Grove, Pa.
Located in Penn Township, Penn Medicine Southern Chester County offers comprehensive outpatient services to area residents. Scheduled to open June 1, medical services include radiology (MRI, CT, 3D mammography, X-ray, ultrasound and bone density), laboratory and physical therapy, according to the release.
The physician practice specialties of primary care and ophthalmology will begin June 1 with the opening of obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, cardiology, otolaryngology (head and neck), gastroenterology and pediatrics practices following in the summer and fall. A full-service outpatient surgical center also is planned to open in the fall.
“As a local resident to Jennersville, it’s been particularly rewarding to develop this project in my own backyard,” Katie Jacoby, senior vice president of Anchor Health Properties, said in the release. “We designed Penn Medicine Southern Chester County with the patient experience first and foremost. From its visible and convenient location to the amenities and services within, every element is designed to make the experience seamless and pleasant.”
The project takes advantage of a spacious 45-acre site with walking trails, lush meadows, landscaping and ample parking. The project architect is Array Architects and the construction manager is the Norwood Company, according to the release.
The facility is anchored by Penn Medicine’s Chester County Hospital, located in West Chester, Pa.
“Many of the patients who utilize ancillary and inpatient services of Chester County Hospital are residents of southern Chester County,” Michael J. Duncan, president and CEO of Chester County Hospital, said in the release. “With this population growing, Penn Medicine Southern Chester County allows individuals and families to be seen locally in one convenient location. We anticipate that this will make a very positive difference in the lives of those living in this part of our region.”
