  • Einstein Medical Center Montgomery Opens Doors To The Community At “DESTINATION EINSTEIN!”

    Published: 09/14/2012


    A week before the doors open for business, Einstein Medical Center Montgomery will host an open house for the community to tour the new $350 million facility and spend a fun-filled day enjoying games, entertainment and health education activities.

    Sports celebrities, hospital officials and medical specialists will be on hand at Destination Einstein! noon to 6 PM on Sept.22 at the campus at 559 W. Germantown Pike, East Norriton.

    “This is our chance to celebrate the opening of this spectacular new facility with our new neighbors, and to demonstrate our desire to be actively engaged in the community,” said Beth Duffy, Chief Operating Officer of Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.

    Families can go on self-guided tours to see the all-private patient rooms, visit the emergency and maternity departments, and see the da Vinci robot in the gleaming, futuristic operating room. A rotating roster of medical specialists will be stationed at tables to answer questions during the festivities.

    Brendan Hansen, Olympic Gold medalist swimmer, will greet visitors outside of the Men’s Health Pavilion, where guests can play Wii games, relax and get health information. The Women’s Health Pavilion will offer chair massages and health information. Children and their families can see a performance by hosts Kelly and Chica from The Sunny Side Up Show on 24-hour preschool television channel Sprout and have their picture taken with them in the Kids’ Zone.

    The hospital grounds will become a festive community fair, with an entertainment stage featuring non-stop performances from local professional and community-based groups; a midway where participants can win prizes playing games of strength, balance and accuracy – such as throwing baseballs and knocking down milk bottles; a math and science pavilion with demonstrations, make-and-take crafts, robotics, and a presentation of The Science Show by award-winning musician and former circus performer John Hadfield.

    There will be raffles, prizes and family photo sessions. The building itself will be illuminated with dramatic special lighting each evening beginning Sept. 19 through the end of Community Day.

    “We’re delighted to be able to introduce our new medical center with so many varied, fun and educational activities for everyone to enjoy,” Duffy said.

    Shuttle buses to transfer guests from remote parking lots will run every 15 minutes starting at 11:45 AM and ending at 7 PM.

    Einstein Medical Center Montgomery will officially open to serve patients on Saturday, Sept. 29.
