Ribbon cutting: Holmesburg residents celebrated the grand opening of a new, comprehensive medical campus on Saturday with a ribbon-cutting and health fair at The Center for Medical Excellence on the 8000 block of Frankford Ave. The former Holmesburg Family Practice, led by Dr. Joseph Pongonis, has expanded into a full-service medical center with EPIC Physicians primary and urgent care, Einstein Healthcare Network’s Multispecialty Suite, Progress Physical Therapy, Lawall Prosthetic & Orthotic Services, Patelka Dental and Holmesburg Pharmacy. Doctors and staff treated visitors to breakfast, refreshments, prize giveaways, child face painting and other entertainment, in addition to medical information.
A patient needs to know the difference between routine, urgent and emergency care.
For 32 years, Dr. Joseph Pongonis has been keeping the families of Holmesburg physically healthy. Now he’s working on the economic health of the neighborhood.
