The Brind-Marcus Center of Integrative Medicine in Villanova Center
Target Building Construction completed the first satellite location of the Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine at Jefferson in a 14,000 square foot facility in Villanova. The Brind-Marcus Center was made possible by a $14 million gift from The Marcus Foundation, which is chaired by Bernie Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot.
The gift also provided funding for a PET-MRI (Positron Emission Tomography-Magnetic Resonance Imaging) — the first of its kind in the Philadelphia region. The PET-MRI combines an MRI with molecular imaging to give a complete picture with precise alignment of anatomy and metabolic activity. Patients will have the convenience of having both tests combined into one by using the PET-MRI at the Villanova location.
This is Target Building Construction’s initial project for Jefferson as a new healthcare client. Services involved renovation of the former Staples store at Villanova Center with extensive demolition of the entire space. New electrical and mechanical systems were required to accommodate the PET-MRI. Interior finishes included new architectural millwork throughout and plank flooring and carpet.
