PENN — Construction has begun on a medical office building at the new Penn Medicine Southern Chester County health care campus in Jennersville.

The facility will offer a full complement of outpatient services, a news release says.

White Plains, N.Y.-based Seavest Healthcare Properties LLC in partnership with Anchor Health Properties started construction of the two-story, 72,000-square-foot medical office at the northeast corner of routes 1 and 796.

The steel-framed, brick-and-metal-clad ambulatory care facility will feature primary and specialty care physician offices, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy and laboratory services.

Construction is scheduled for about 12 months.

“With the Medical Office Building at Penn Medicine Southern Chester County, Seavest continues to invest in significant healthcare facilities aligned with successful health systems in high-quality, efficient and patient-centered environments,” Jonathan L. Winer, senior managing director of Seavest Healthcare Properties, writes in a news release. “This facility reinforces Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital’s brand and offers a convenient location for those living in the western part of the hospital’s market.”

Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital is part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. The new building is tenanted by the Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital and affiliated physicians.

“With the population growth this area has experienced in recent years, the need for patient services has also increased,” Winer writes. “The new facility accommodates space for physicians, provides accessibility, visibility and the opportunity for future expansion. We anticipate a successful integration and expansion of Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital’s ambulatory service lines within the new Jennersville Medical Office Building at Penn Medicine Southern Chester County.”

A limited amount of space is available in the Jennersville Ambulatory Care Center.
