St. Charles Project




Healthy Living is Here

Main Line Health and Lankenau Medical Center have been deeply rooted partners in the Lower Merion community for more than 150 years. Our continued dedication to compassionate care, superior service, high-quality and innovative clinical programs, world-class treatments and procedures, and talented clinicians and staff make Lankenau a destination for care throughout the Philadelphia region.


As core values of Main Line Health, innovation and compassion are fundamental to this project. With passion, we aspire to create a village of health and wellness that goes beyond the traditional ideas of healthy living and to establish a transformative healthcare community promoting longer, healthier lives.

About the Team

We have assembled a team of local and national leaders and experts responsible for developing this world-class project. Together, we will employ best practices in design and development – along with feedback from the community – to shape a successful community project.
