Genetic Screening and Services

  • Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia offers genetic testing as part of a full range of services. Einstein is the only healthcare network in the Philadelphia region to offer prenatal, pediatric, adult and cancer genetics services in one location.

    In addition, Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia was the first hospital in the area to initiate and create a Jewish Genetic Disease Screening Program. Housed in the Victor Center for Jewish Genetic Diseases, the program offers ongoing community outreach and education.
