Penn Med's Adventure in Radnor

More than 2500 people turned up for the Open House and Family Health Fair that celebrated the opening of Penn Medicine at Radnor on Saturday, April 5.

Penn Medicine at Radnor is a state-of-the-art medical office building staffed by specialists and primary care doctors from the University of Pennsylvania Health System. Three dozen specialties--from allergy and immunology to vascular surgery--are brought together in the 79,500-sq. ft. facility with its 40 procedure rooms, and 40 office and consultation rooms. A major feature of the unit is Penn Health for Women, one of the six Centers of Excellence in Women's Health in the U.S., which includes primary care as well as ob/gyn, peri- and post-menopausal are and counseling, nutrional counseling and weight management. Ancillary services in the same modue provide for mammograms and bone density study.

PennMed at Radnor was designed for patient convenience. Nine separate medical-service modules are linked to one centralized medical-records station, letting patients travel seamlessly from one module to another without the need for repetitive processing and duplicate paperwork and data-entry. Each medical-service module has its own reception area, exam/treatment rooms, staff units, and consultation and patient-education rooms.

There is also a full-service gym for those undergoing rehab or therapy. Patients scheduled for surgery at HUP or Presbyterian Medical Center can use the Admissions Evaluation Center at Radnor for pre-op work and completion of the registration process.

At the opening of the new health care unit are, left to right, Lu Ann Trainer, executive director of C-PUP Patient Services; Greg Stets, Practice Administrator for Penn Medicine at Radnor; and Dr. Michael A. Grippi, Medical Director of Penn Medicine at Radnor. The unit is at 250 King of Prussia Road, the well-known former home of TV Guide, and its main phone number is (610) 902-2000.
