With the grand opening Tuesday of the Brandywine Valley Specialty Care and Ambulatory Surgery Center in Glen Mills, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has completed a trifecta of suburban outpatient centers this year. CHOP spent more than $100 million on the three specialty care and outpatient surgery facilities, including those that opened in King of Prussia during the summer and in Plainsboro, N.J., last winter. The most expensive by far was the 135,000-square-foot facility in King of Prussia, which had a total cost of $65 million.

The demand for less costly substance-abuse services has attracted a new player to the field in the Philadelphia area. Friends Hospital, a 177-year-old psychiatric center at 4641 Roosevelt Blvd., said it purchased a year-old business that specialized in treating individuals with drug and alcohol problems on an outpatient basis.

Despite a resemblance to a posh health club, Frankford Hospital's month- old, 5,000-square-foot Physical Therapy Center at 9432 Roosevelt Blvd. is designed to meet a growing demand for outpatient treatment of industrial injuries. "Over the past year, more and more patients have been referred to us," Joseph Scheideler, director of the hospital's physical-therapy department, said last week.

Crozer-Keystone Health System on Saturday celebrated the opening of a new outpatient center in Broomall, expanding the Delaware County system's reach into territory wealthy competitors have long mined for patients.

"This is traditional Delaware County," Gavin said after the ribbon-cutting, as guests wandered through the 50,000-square-foot center, which offers one-stop shopping for primary care, X-rays, cancer care, and other health services.
