Main Line Health’s President and CEO Jack Lynch made no bones about it. Main Line Health’s new 131,500 square foot, $47 million center, which opened on December 14, 2016, brings “good health care and disease prevention” to thousands of Delaware County residents.
Why open a medical center in an already crowded market? “We do need assessments to evaluate the medical services available to people in various regions and determined that Glen Mills was a good match for what Main Line Health offers,” Lynch said. That includes urgent care, primary care, an extensive imaging center, physical therapy, occupational health, Nemours duPont Pediatrics and Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital.
The Glen Mills complex also houses Main Line Health’s first fitness and wellness center. The 50,000 square foot facility is helmed by a medical advisory board of over 30 physicians in a variety of specialties who worked with fitness experts to create regimens for people with heart disease, neurological issues and other ailments. “[It’s] a wonderful idea, completely in line with Main Line Health’s mission, that we finally found the right location for,” Lynch said.
