Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia opened its expanded Nicholas and Athena Karabots Primary Care Center in Norristown earlier this week, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The 10,000-square-foot primary care center is named after the local philanthropists who donated $2 million for the project.
The new facility is located across the street from CHOP’s former Norristown Primary Care site. The original center opened seven years ago and was also supported by the Karabots.
More than 32,000 children and families receive primary care and social services there annually.
“My wife and I are pleased to support the renovation and re-location of CHOP’s Primary Care Center in Norristown,” said Nicholas Karabots, founder and chairman of the Ambler-based Spartan Organization. “We strongly believe it’s a necessity for all children, especially those living in difficult situations in underserved communities, to have access to health care services and other resources.”
The new facility has four clinical providers, a practice manager, and eleven other staff members. It will feature a walk-in clinic and offer telehealth visits.
Also, space will be made available for local community service organizations.
