Coming Soon: Nazareth Health Red Lion Road

Partnership with Pinnacle Physicians Group on new Ambulatory Care Center

NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA (January 10, 2019) – Nazareth Hospital and Mercy Physician Network are proud to announce their association with Pinnacle Physicians Group, Philadelphia’s largest network of independent specialty and primary care physicians in a new ambulatory center. Conveniently located at Red Lion Road and Roosevelt Boulevard (9908 Roosevelt Blvd, Philadelphia, PA, 19115), this new center, Independent Physicians Medical Center (IPMC), will provide extensive specialty care and state-of-the-art radiology services to Northeast Philadelphia and house Nazareth Health Red Lion Road.

Services provided by Nazareth Hospital and Mercy Physician Network will initially include cardiology and will expand in the coming months to include a Women’s Center featuring breast health and breast surgery; minimally invasive and bariatric surgery; urology; and OB/GYN. Nutrition counseling and massage therapy will also be available in the future.

“We're pleased to partner to provide a high-quality, exceptional patient experience in a low-cost ambulatory center,” says President of Mercy Physician Network William Strimel, DO.

“Ultimately, we want to create a one-stop shop as convenient as possible for today’s busy women,” explains Nazareth Hospital President Michael Magro, Jr., DO, MBA, FACOI.  “Here they will be able to get all the services they need in one place—from wellness and preventive medicine to gynecologic and maternity services.”

“We are pleased and excited to enter this partnership with Nazareth Hospital and Mercy Physician Network. This association will allow us to provide patients from the Northeast Philadelphia and Lower Bucks County regions access to quality, affordable care in a modern, high-quality facility,” states Richard D. Cohen, DO, President of Independent Physicians Medical Center.

IPMC is presently fully functional, with Nazareth Health Red Lion Road renovations underway and opening anticipated in early 2019. A blessing and community open house will be held in the spring.
