"This new site, located in southwestern Delaware County, is an exciting addition to our CHOP Care Network and will enable families in both Pennsylvania and northern Delaware to access CHOP clinicians much closer to home."
The ambulatory surgery center will provide expertise in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), gastroenterology, general surgery, ophthalmology, plastic surgery, and urology.
“By bringing together all of these services in a new state-of-the-art facility, we are able to provide an optimal patient family experience,” said Amy Lambert, senior vice president of the CHOP Care Network. “This new facility will allow us to offer comprehensive, seamless care for patients who often see multiple specialists and require ancillary services and diagnostic tests.”
The new Brandywine Valley Specialty Care and Ambulatory Surgery Center joins more than 50 CHOP Care Network centers in Philadelphia, the surrounding counties and South Jersey, further expanding local access to top-ranked services for families in the Delaware Valley.
