About North Penn Hospital.

Located north of Philadelphia, the 150-bed, not for profit, acute care general hospital provides a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient health services. The hospital has a staff of more than 250 physicians representing 40 areas of medicine and surgery; most of whom are board-certified in their areas of specialization. Penn Hospital provides a full complement of patient care.

Their Need.
An article in a health magazine attracted a doctor who was soon to move his practice to NPH. He needed space quickly to avoid a gap in service to his dialysis patients and a new, larger dialysis clinic would catch up to increasing local demand and provide space for quick future growth. During budget discussions, NPH also learned that through cost-effective modular construction they could quickly add other facilities. A key condition of the project, however, had to be minimizing disruption to patients and hospital personnel during construction.

Our Solution.

NPH turned to our distributor Medbuild and Whitley Manufacturing to provide them with the right design. Because the building was completed in sections (or modules) off-site and then transported to NPH, these factors worked in the favor of the hospital. First, off-site manufacturing meant that disruption to the hospital campus and patients was greatly diminished. Secondly, foundation work did not have to preface the structure; the two could be done concurrently. This shortened the schedule by months. The focus at NPH could remain on health care, not avoiding construction vehicles. Secondly, modular construction permitted an accelerated timeline with the building completed in 120 days. With the money saved, the hospital constructed a "seamless link" corridor between the existing building and the new wing.

Less disruption, a faster time line and all under budget.
