 The opening of the facility is a milestone in the history of the Medical College of Pennsylvania, which was originally located at 6th and Arch streets. At that location in 1850, a group of visionary Quaker men founded the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania as the first medical school for women -- at a time when they were frequently being denied entry to medical school in the United States. Co-educational since 1969, the college now includes 496 medical students and 119 graduate students.
 The Medical College of Pennsylvania is a member of Allegheny Health, Education and Research Foundation (AHERF), a statewide academic-based, integrated health care delivery system.
