Penn State Health Pediatric Center Opens
The site of a former Toys “R” Us store found a new way to serve children when Penn State Health Children’s Lancaster Pediatric Center opened its doors on Monday, June 27, 2022.
The new center, with its bright, cheerful interior is located adjacent to The Crossings at Conestoga Creek and is Lancaster County’s largest outpatient center for children. With 47,000 square feet, it has 46 exam rooms and offers a full spectrum of care for children from infancy through age 18.
The site became available when a Toys “R” Us affiliate vacated the building in June 2018 after the chain retailer declared bankruptcy. High Associates purchased the property in May 2019, and construction on the new pediatric center began in spring 2021. High Construction Company was the general contractor, Greenfield Architects Ltd. designed the exterior, and the interior was designed by IKM Inc. of Pittsburgh.
“It’s the adaptive reuse of an existing, older building that continues to serve kids but now in a different way,” said Bill Boben, Senior Vice President of Sales and Leasing, High Associates.
Completion of the new center, conveniently located at the intersection of Harrisburg Pike and Rt. 30, will ensure that the youngest residents of Lancaster County and surrounding areas have convenient access to primary and specialty care services for many years to come.
