Thoughtful design, sensitivity to patient experience, and a focus on sustainability has earned praise for the new Einstein Medical Center Montgomery in Pennsylvania — as well as LEED-NC Silver certification from the US Green Building Council

Designed by the New York office of Perkins+Will, the Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, located in East Norriton, Pennsylvania — a 360,000 sq-ft, 146-bed acute care facility and adjoining 75,000 sq-ft medical office building — is the first new hospital built in south-eastern Pennsylvania in more than a decade.

Built for Einstein Healthcare Network based in Philadelphia, in addition to the Einstein facility’s accomplishments in sustainable design, two other major distinctions are its dedication to serving the needs of both its patients and the community as well as its celebration of the surrounding natural landscape.

These qualities — which earned the facility LEED-NC Silver certification from the US Green Building Council — were achieved through a design strategy that united architectural, interior, and medical planning. They set a framework for cutting-edge in-patient and outpatient service, integrated advanced medical technology, and upheld sustainable design principles.

“Our hospital was developed with the patient and their families at the centre of every initiative,” says Beth Duffy, chief operating officer for Einstein Montgomery.  “Sustainable building shows that we care for the community beyond the walls of our medical centre.”
