CHOP Builds New Primary Care Center

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia broke ground on a new primary care center named the Nicholas and Athena Karabots Primary Care Center in West Philadelphia.  The $30 million, 52,000-square-foot facility will provide pediatric care and community programs to children and their families in the surrounding community. The new center will give West Philadelphia families convenient access to standard-setting pediatric healthcare.

Located on a four-acre site, the two story, 52,000 sf building will contain 6 child-friendly examination rooms, plus rooms dedicated to radiology, hearing and vision testing, and a phlebotomy laboratory.  The facility will also house community programs offered by Children's Hospital, such as Early Head Start, Reach Out and Read, domestic violence education, and asthma education.  The Center plans to accommodate over 45,000 outpatient visits annually.

Architect: Brawer & Hauptman Architects
