Children's Hospital to expand in KoP

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia will break ground this summer on a new facility in King of Prussia to replace its current offices on Mall Boulevard. Its larger capacity will allow room for an ambulatory surgery center in addition to the services it offers at its current location.

Children's Hospital to expand in KoP

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia plans to build a larger specialty-care center in King of Prussia to replace its nearby offices on Mall Boulevard.
The hospital expects to break ground this summer on a 115,000-square-foot center in the new Village at Valley Forge development on North Gulph Road. The new facility will be 45,000 square feet bigger than it has currently in King of Prussia. There’s space there for the center to expand to as much as 195,000 square feet.
The new facility will provide the same services — 20 medical and surgical specialties — that its current location offers and add an ambulatory surgery center staffed by hospital surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists with training to work in operating rooms and intensive-care units.
“The growth of the CHOP Care Network has been in direct response to increasing demand for our services in the suburban communities surrounding Philadelphia,” said Amy Lambert, senior vice president of the hospital’s Care Network. “Moving everything under one roof will enhance the patient experience by improving the flow of care to best serve our patients’ needs.”
Construction is expected to be done in early 2015.
