The Center’s team has cared for more than 14,300 expectant parents from all 50 states and more than50 countries.A portion of the proceeds will also support construction of the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care, which will be the most state-of-the-art outpatient facility in the nation when it opens in 2015. This colorful and elegant addition to the skyline of West Philadelphia will enable smoother, more efficient and less stressful visits to the doctor and will increase CHOP’s capacity to address children’s most complex health needs.
