Pediatric Associates of Plymouth is celebrating our 61st anniversary in 2021. Our practice was first known as Norristown Pediatrics, formed in 1960 by three pediatricians - Drs. Thomas Kochenderfer, Norman Quinn and Allen Weed - who merged their solo practices to work together providing care for children in Montgomery County. Dr. Quinn served as long-time chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Montgomery Hospital, and Dr. Weed did the same at the former Sacred Heart Hospital. The group eventually moved to the Red Rowan Lane office in Plymouth Meeting, and the name was changed to Pediatric Associates of Plymouth. In 1996, we relocated to the Walton Road Campus.
In August of 1981, Pediatric Associates of Plymouth opened a satellite office in Trappe. Initially operating only 3 afternoons per week, this second office rapidly grew and expanded to a full-time facility. In 2000, the Trappe office moved down Main Street to a larger new setting in Collegeville.
Today, our five pediatricians and two nurse practitioners divide their time between both offices. We are affiliated with Bryn Mawr Hospital and also have access to specialist care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, and Nemours-Dupont Hospital for Children. Each office is staffed with dedicated nurses, lab technicians and front-office personnel continuing a fifty-year tradition of providing knowledgeable, compassionate care for the children of Montgomery County
