Main Line Health unveiled plans Friday to build a $32 million health center, which will have a focus on women’s health, in King of Prussia.
The 94,000-square foot complex is being developed by Main Line Health in a partnership with Axia Women’s Health. The Philadelphia Business Journal first reported in October that Main Line Health was developing plans for the site on Valley Green Lane across from the Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel.
“With a focus on women’s health, this health center will allow us to expand our breadth of services to include a wide range of holistic therapies and specialty-care services to meet the needs of women and their families across our region,” said Jack Lynch, the health system’s president and CEO.
Some of the services specifically for women will include:
Primary and specialty care services such as rheumatology and autoimmune services, digestive health care, headache and neurology, healthy aging and gerontology, heart and vascular care, endocrinology, primary care, obstetrics and gynecology, menopause and midlife center, pelvic floor care, reproductive endocrinology and infertility services;
Life enrichment services that address emotional wellness, including individual and group counseling and post-partum depression care; comprehensive weight management; integrative medicine and mindfulness therapies such as acupuncture and reiki;
Breast health care including mammography, ultrasound, biopsy and surgical consults; and
Skin care including dermatology, esthetics, and plastic surgery consults.
The health center will also feature an ambulatory care center and provide general health and wellness services to men and women in the King of Prussia area. Those services include primary care, cardiology and cardiac testing, endocrinology, neurology, general surgery, orthopedics, imaging, physical therapy and lab services. Other amenities at the site will include a child watch area, parenting support services, nutrition services, a demonstration kitchen and a medical retail space.
Axia, which has corporate office in Oaks, Montgomery County; and Voorhees, N.J., is one the largest women’s health practice groups in the country. It is comprised of more than 275 providers at more than 100 patient care centers across New Jersey and Pennsylvania

The health system also includes five outpatient health centers, one of the region’s largest multispecialty physician networks, and the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, a nonprofit biomedical research organization located on the campus of Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood.
