Today I had my second Mohs surgery for skin cancer. I had another one two years ago. Today my procedure was in the brand new Penn Medicine at Radnor At 145 King of Prussia Road in Radnor.
It was a little dicey getting into the new complex because the brand new PennDOT installed left turn arrow light was broken. And there is road work going on. But then you see the new building and a big parking garage. If you have gone to Penn Medicine in Radnor over the years at the old location you know one of the biggest problems has always been parking, so this is welcome.
It’s a giant building. It’s pristine and amazing. I did get lost but I think that is because I was so used to the old building.
The two wings of the new building have an amazing courtyard in the middle complete with a garden. The garden in the center of Chester County Hospital is one of my favorite things about the hospital so I’m really glad they did this year as well. it has little tables and benches and once things are more opened up I’m sure people will be able to sit outside.
When you go in you are greeted by reception and they take your temperature. They then direct you to where you were going when I got upstairs to where I was going which was on the third floor, the first thing I saw getting off the elevator was central registration where I checked in.
One thing I did not care for as I was charged a co-pay and I was not supposed to be charged a co-pay today because I was there for a day surgical procedure. But I think those are kinks they will work out in this new registration process. That step did occur at the old building.
The exam rooms are bright and spacious and so are the waiting room areas. What I am missing however, is all the art from the Delaware Valley Art League they hung on the walls of the old building. My exam room had a view of the natural pond being built. It had a couple families of Canadian geese complete with goslings so it was really kind of fun to see.
This is an amazing building that one commissioner in Radnor Township in particular fought and still is. Commissioner Booker, please give it up. It is an amazing and necessary facility and you’re lucky they didn’t leave Radnor Township…because they could have.
Well my face literally hurts so that is all from me today.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hoping tomorrow will be a sunnier time for you…you deserve a break. I , on the other hand, am looking for a Penn facility that offers nuclear procedures. I live in Downingtown and have to go to Philly Penn for a nuclear therapy procedure. Have finished 2 of 4. It’s so hard to get in there by 7:30 a.m. I did inquire and they told me Chesco Hospital probably won’t be doing it any time soon, but possibly Radnor will. It’s still better than having to fly to Germany as many people have in the past for this therapy. Did you see any signs for nuclear medicine while you were in Radnor?
I wasn’t all over the building and all the signs weren’t up. Maybe they will have it because they are also going to have radiation which they did not before. I would ask your doctors
