The Rothman Institute at Jefferson moved into new and expanded facilities on the Jefferson campus, at 925 Chestnut St., Monday, March 2. The new site is in the former PMA Building at 10th and Chestnut Streets, former home of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and, more recently, the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association (PMA).
"This facility will redefine the way we provide orthopaedics for the Delaware Valley," says Richard H. Rothman, MD, PhD, founder of the Rothman Institute, and James Edwards Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Jefferson Medical College.
In announcing the move to patients, Dr. Rothman stressed they will be better served by the new facility.
"You (patients) now will find all our services at one convenient building location, and centralized inside the building. No longer, for example, will it be necessary for any patient to leave the floors of the Rothman Institute to receive X-rays or MRIs. In fact, our goal is to be able to provide your basic service visit - seeing your doctor and taking X-rays - in less than one hour's time."
The Rothman Institute's modern, newly renovated facilities offer under one roof: clinical and surgical centers, fully equipped imaging area (with the latest MRI equipment), physical therapy center, a pain management area, orthotic center, research laboratories and libraries, an educational center and valet parking.
The Rothman Institute at Jefferson will continue to provide expertise in virtually every orthopaedic procedure.
Adds Dr. Rothman: "My colleagues and I have always taken pride in our high standards of excellence which have resulted in the outstanding reputation that the Rothman Institute has been able to achieve over the years. Now, we have an additional source of pride - a sparkling new facility in a beautiful setting."
