  • Einstein Medical Center Montgomery expansion (Times Herald)

    Published: 04/15/2013

     It’s been barely six months since the shiny new Einstein Medical Center Montgomery debuted on the site of the old “Woody’s” golf course, and already the hospital is growing.

    Expansion to the latest addition of the Einstein Healthcare Network — essentially a conversion of the west wing of the medical center’s fourth floor — came a bit sooner than anticipated, noted Beth Duffy, Chief Operating Officer of Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.

    “We really thought it would happen a year or two down the road, but the early success of Einstein Medical Center Montgomery has created the need for additional patient care areas.”

    Luckily, expansion opportunities were built in during the original construction, Duffy explained.

    “The space was planned to be the first expansion, so we made an administrative space with modular walls so they could be easily taken down. The plumbing and infrastructure was already built in.”

    The administrative staff will be relocated from the fourth floor, with more than half remaining in various locations within the hospital. A modular building located immediately to the north of the Minerva D. Braemer Medical Arts Building is being installed to provide office space for the remaining staff.

    With the hospital’s research having shown that 60 percent of patients leave Central Montgomery County for their health care services, “we wanted a facility that people could access in their community and now that has come to fruition. We are clearly meeting a need in the community,” Duffy said.

    That need will be met even more easily with the extra two dozen medical/surgical beds to be housed on the fourth floor once construction is completed in about nine months.

    With 87 rolling acres at 559 W. Germantown Pike in East Norriton, it’s a safe bet that future expansion for EMCM is likely.

    “We like to think there will be, but we don’t have any definitive plans at this point,” Duffy said.
