Jefferson Health and Thomas Jefferson University have plans to construct a new $762m, 19-storey medical building, called Specialty Care Pavilion, in Pennsylvania, US.

Developed by National Real Estate Development, the new building is designed by architectural firms Ennead Architects and Stantec.

The medical building will focus on care for neurodiverse populations, including autism and dementia patients. It is intended to deliver many of Jefferson’s services at a single location.

Jefferson Health intends to vacate more than 177,000ft2 across ten buildings to construct the Specialty Care Pavilion.

The new building is set to house multiple centres and institutes such as Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, the Digestive Health Institute, Jefferson Transplant Institute, and Jane and Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute.

Additional clinical specialties will include cardiovascular, otolaryngology, rheumatology and urology, among others.

Spanning about 462,000ft2, Specialty Care Pavilion will have more than 300 exam rooms, ten operating rooms, six endoscopy rooms, imaging and lab services, 58 infusion chairs, a pharmacy and underground parking space.

Jefferson expects to leverage advanced technologies for the building, including digital wayfinding, virtual surgical theaters, wearable data integration, voice assistants, robotic, and augmented and virtual reality.

With groundbreaking set to occur in the coming months, the new building is expected to open in 2024.

Thomas Jefferson University president and Jefferson Health CEO Stephen Klasko said: “This spectacular new center is our bridge to the future, where we’ll create the nation’s first model of health assurance.

“People want to be supported in staying healthy without healthcare getting in the way. At Jefferson’s Specialty Care Pavilion, we will create healthcare with no address.”

Last month, the Ohio State University (OSU) announced plans for a $1.79bn, 1.9 million square feet inpatient hospital.

Named Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Hospital, the new facility is intended to boost research, clinical training and patient care.
