Einstein Medical Center Montgomery
A new installation of work by transformative modern artist Sol LeWitt demonstrates the vision of Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, where architecture, design and efficiency work together with staff excellence and medical innovation to deliver an unparalleled patient experience. The bright colors and unpacked cubes of LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #972 will grace the first floor corridor of the medical center for 25 years through a generous loan from the artist’s estate, serving as a feast for the eyes for staff, patients and visitors and providing a rare opportunity for the public to access this important work of art. The installation enriches Einstein Montgomery’s brand-new, state-of-the-art medical facility — one whose patient-focused aesthetic sensibility mirrors its holistic, community-focused approach to healthcare.
Opened this fall on Sept. 29, Einstein Montgomery (559 W. Germantown Pike, East Norriton, PA) is the first completely new medical center to be built in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region in more than a decade. The 146-bed facility was designed to include every possible element of holistic healing, from natural light pouring through soaring atrium windows and in patient rooms to carefully selected high-quality works of art intended to soothe and inspire.

More than 60 percent of the population in the immediate area of the new hospital has had to travel up to 30 miles to receive the full complement of health care services, which now will be available in their neighborhood.
