Inside these walls, the future of medicine is coming into view. Penn Medicine's Pavilion, an innovative hospital set to open at the end of October 2021, sets a new benchmark for care delivery.
Through the Pavilion, patient care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) is being brought to new levels. We have transformed how we organize and deliver care, using state-of-the-art technology and new ways of thinking to ensure the patient experience is at the very center of everything we do. With innovation and technology at the heart of its design, the hospital is equipped to deliver both the treatments of today and the medical advances of tomorrow.
"People around the globe will come here to get the care and the hope that they need, so that they can get back to their families."
The Pavilion is one of the largest hospital projects underway in the United States and the largest capital project in the University of Pennsylvania's history. The building itself is a massive 1.5-million-square-foot, 17-story facility with 504 private patient rooms and 47 operating rooms. However, what makes it so unique is its design, which centers entirely around patient care. The design relies on the expertise of Penn Medicine's own clinical experts as well as architecture, design, and construction professionals who specialize in health care. The end result is a culmination of years of meticulous thought, collaboration, and research about how to organize clinical care spaces to be effective for both clinicians' and patients' needs.
Located in West Philadelphia, the Pavilion sits across the street from the HUP and adjacent to the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. Once open, bridges and tunnels will physically connect all three facilities and operations to each other.
A Beacon of Hope: Penn Medicine's New Pavilion
The new Pavilion at Penn Medicine will be one of the most state-of-the-art patient care facilities in the world when it opens in 2021.
