New space for Temple University Physicians

Temple University Physicians has opened a newly remodeled Medical Office Building that will house the clinical practices and academic offices for the Department of Medicine’s sections of endocrinology, nephrology and rheumatology, as well as the Department of Family and Community Medicine and the Kidney Transplant Program.

The building, located at 3300 N. Broad St., in the former Skin and Cancer Center, will enable physicians and staff to provide comprehensive and integrated medical care services in a modern, patient-focused environment, according to Edward Kushmerek, chief executive officer of TUP.

There’s also new laboratory and research space, as well as conference and meeting areas.

The new facility is part of TUP’s overall expansion strategy, which includes plans for new sites in Center City, Northeast Philadelphia and other areas in the region.
