The Pavilion for Advanced Care: Renderings and Reality

As we look toward the opening of our new Pavilion for Advanced Care (PAC) and the transition of our trauma center from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, throughout the month of January, the News Blog is highlighting some of the latest news and stories from across the areas of Penn Medicine that will find new homes in the PAC.

As mentioned in our post from Jan. 2, we're pretty stoked about the Pavilion for Advanced Care (PAC) finally being open to patients.

Well, we say "finally," but the truth is it seems like only a few weeks ago we were talking about ground breaking ceremonies, beam signings, and a ton of tours through half-built hallways. Not all of the PAC is ready just yet, but construction's in its final stages and within five weeks or so this state-of-the-art facility will bring aboard Emergency Medicine, Surgery, Radiology, and Critical Care departments.

Perhaps nothing better illustrates just how far things have come than another glance at the artist's original renderings for PAC — what our new facility looked like when it was just a gleam in its designer's eye. We've dropped in some of those renderings below, along with images from this morning displaying just how things turned out. We did the best we could to match the angles, but you'd be surprised just how challenging (albeit fun) that can be.

So, without further ado, take a gander (one of many we'll be giving you over the next month or so) at the new Pavilion for Advanced Care on the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center campus!
