Project Description

The Center for Health and Literacy is a cooperative project between the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia. This dynamic complex offers medical care, wellness services, as well as recreational and literacy programs in one convenient location in order to improve health and educational outcomes for children and adults in South Philadelphia. It is estimated that the new facility receives 100,000 patient visits annually. Approximately 70% of the patients served received medical assistance from the government, and live at or below the poverty line. The new Center allows both CHOP and the City of Philadelphia to gain some cost efficiencies by sharing certain clinical services such as laboratory and radiology space.
