Penn Medicine CEO Kevin Mahoney was part of a PBJ virtual event where they interviewed four leaders of Philadelphia-area health systems to discuss their recent COVID-19 challenges, technology, and building needs, and the shortage of healthcare workers, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Mahoney, who has served in the role of CEO since 2019, is interested in expanding more into Montgomery County, as “60% of our revenue comes from the outpatient side, so we are going to continue to build our large ambulatory sites,” he said.

The hospital system is planning a new 150,000 square-foot outpatient center, to be called Penn Medicine North Wales, in Montgomery Township where Welsh Road meets Route 202. “We want to be a good neighbor to the township,” Mahoney says. “Like a hospital without beds, it will be similar to the Penn Medicine Radnor Center, but will have chemotherapy, radiation oncology, outpatient surgery, and all of our specialty care anchored with primary and behavioral health.”

Mahoney notes that it is a greenfield site and that they “are maintaining a lot of the buffer, so we think it will get approved. We hope to be in the ground within a year.”
