US-based Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is set to open a new 12-storey outpatient paediatric facility on Civic Center Boulevard.

The new Buerger Centre for Advanced Pediatric Care will open on 27 July, as part of the newly named Raymond G Perelman campus.

CHOP president Madeline Bell said: "Many families, doctors and nurses participated in the planning of this building, and the generosity of thousands of donors, most-notably the transformational $50m gift from the Buerger family, has made this centre a reality.

"We are confident that we have achieved our goal of providing an ideal patient experience by utilising design features that anticipate and meet the needs of our patients and their families."
