Penn Medicine is planning to construct the $1.5 billion New Patient Pavilion in Philadelphia. Delivered through an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process, the 1.5 million-sf, 17-story facility will provide 500 private inpatient rooms, hybrid operating suites, intensive care units, a cancer center, and an emergency department. The pavilion will feature flexible rooms designed for ease of conversion to different kinds of units to support changing patient care needs. The project, which will replace the existing Penn Tower, will include a 650-space subterranean parking structure. The IPD team includes architectural firms HDR and Foster + Partners, engineering consultant BR+A, and construction managers Balfour Beatty and LF Driscoll. Completion is expected in 2021. Penn Medicine is part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
