Patients choose the University of Pennsylvania Health System knowing they can expect the best care, state-of-the-art technology and latest treatment options. Designed with patients' needs in mind, the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine offers an environment where patients feel safe, comfortable and full partners in their care. This new patient experience was built on extensive input from Penn physicians and nurses, who were consulted on the building's design throughout the planning process.

Some of the advantages of the Perelman Center that enable us to provide world-class patient care include:

  • Physicians in cardiovascular and oncology sub-specialties will work contiguously, collaborating easily on treatment plans and holding joint consultations with patients.
  • Electronic medical records and the latest in communication technology will facilitate record sharing among staff and convenient organization of appointments for patients.
  • Research trials will be conducted within the facilities, improving access to trials and catalyzing the flow of ideas from bench to bedside and among researchers.
  • Natural light will bathe the building through its central atrium, exterior windows and interior skylights.
  • Waiting areas, food services and patient library and education rooms are designed to meet the needs of families and enable patients to participate in their own care and treatment.
  • From its underground parking facility, patients can take elevators directly to the practice they are visiting.

With adjacent diagnostic and treatment space, physicians and nurses at the Perelman Center will be able to collaborate with each other at every step of the patient's experience. All cancer care – including clinical research and medical, surgical and radiation oncology, will be integrated as never before possible, building on the Abramson Cancer Center's reputation for providing care tailored to the needs of each patient.

As heart failure and disease rates rapidly increase, the Perelman Center will explore new paradigms of care and new opportunities for our scientists to apply the fruits of their research to clinical care. The Perelman Center will allow these specialists to practice in a setting designed to encourage collaboration among all providers of care, strengthening the vital partnership between caregivers and patients.
