About Penn Presbyterian Medical Center

Penn Medicine's Level 1 Trauma Center

For more than a century, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center has provided outstanding health care services. It has grown tremendously over the years, and today Penn Presbyterian ranks as one of the region's premier medical facilities, combining state-of-the-art technology with personalized care from exceptional physicians and staff.

Penn Presbyterian has an outstanding track record of medical accomplishments — such as creating one of the first coronary care units in the country — and it continues to provide leading-edge care as part of Penn Medicine. Several of Penn's premier medical programs — including cardiology, family medicine, internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, psychiatry, radiology and imaging, surgery, and trauma — are located on Penn Presbyterian's campus. In recent years, Penn Presbyterian has become a regional leader in performing minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery.

In August 2014, Penn Medicine University City (PMUC) opened its doors at 3737 Market Street. PMUC provides seamless, integrated care to patients by offering advanced treatment options and bringing a multitude of specialties together, all under one roof for outpatient care. PMUC is also the home to the Penn Musculoskeletal Center — the first of its kind in Philadelphia.

In January 2015, the Pavilion for Advanced Care (PAC) opened at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. A 178,000 square-foot, acute care building, the PAC provides overall upgrades and enhanced capacity for emergency, surgical, trauma and critical care patients. In February 2015, Penn Medicine's Level 1 Trauma Center moved from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania to the PAC.

Because we know hospitalization can be stressful, the staff at Penn Presbyterian is especially concerned about patient comfort and peace of mind. Most hospital rooms are private, and our patient care team understands the importance of being attentive to patient and family needs and of keeping them informed about their medical care. The connection between Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) is close and strong. Many Penn Medicine specialists treat patients at both of these respected institutions, offering added convenience and reassurance for patients.
