Introducing the New Penn Musculoskeletal Center

Reinventing Orthopaedic Care

Penn Orthopaedics is proud to announce a whole new way of delivering orthopaedic care. On August 25, 2014, Penn Medicine will open the new Penn Musculoskeletal Center.

The Center will consist of 49 exam rooms and will occupy two floors of Penn Medicine University City, a new 200,000 square-foot facility located at 3737 Market Street.

The Ideal Patient Environment

The Penn Musculoskeletal Center will open August, 25.
The Penn Musculoskeletal Center was meticulously planned with the patient in mind. As a result, we created an ideal environment for personalized patient care - with emphasis on an improved experience to treat the range of orthopaedic disorders, injuries and other issues found in joints, bones or muscles.

This unique patient experience will be managed by a dedicated care coordinator who will be a single point of contact. Personal care coordinators will schedule pre-admissions testing and follow-up appointments, including appropriate rehab therapy.

Unlike other area institutes or centers, the Penn Musculoskeletal Center will provide superior musculoskeletal care by a team of Penn experts from multiple medical specialties:
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Good Shepherd Penn Partners Therapy 
  • Pain Medicine
  • Family Medicine/Sports Medicine
  • Internal Medicine
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
  • Rheumatology
  • Musculoskeletal Radiology

The Center was designed for optimal patient care.
For those who need it, an advanced radiology center is located within the Center to provide services such as digital x-ray, computed tomography (CT scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan) and ultrasound. Musculoskeletal radiologists will be on-site to make the imaging process easier for patients.

Outpatient surgery will be performed at The Surgery Center on the fifth floor of Penn Medicine University City. This facility is designed to maximize surgical efficiency, resulting in less patient waiting time – all set in a family-friendly environment.

All patient flow areas will be organized by specific conditions in common hubs with interactive educational materials and digital exhibits to help educate about relevant conditions and treatment options.

The Penn Musculoskeletal Center will also be home to the new Penn Center for Human Performance, which is slated to open in the fall of 2014.

At the Penn Center for Human Performance, patients with musculoskeletal disorders will be evaluated both before and after treatment in an effort to measure the success of the clinical care plan.

Using cutting edge technology, individuals will receive immediate feedback regarding their physiological and biomechanical disorder and the related medical or surgical treatment plan. The Penn Center for Human Performance will optimize care for both patients and athletes alike.
