Friends of the Heart Institute—an all-volunteer community organization of more than 400 members—has exceeded a $2 million fundraising goal supporting award-winning cardiovascular care at Doylestown Health. Friends of the Heart pledged to raise $1 million for ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health in 2017, and voted to increase that goal to $2 million in 2020.
Since 2017, there have been more than 3,450 donations to Friends, from more than 600 individual donors. All gifts support the campaign priority for advancing nationally recognized cardiovascular care at Doylestown Health. Specifically, support from Friends of the Heart was instrumental in funding the seed grant that kickstarted the research, design, and construction of the Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion at Doylestown Hospital that opened in December 2019.
As we approach Doylestown Health’s centennial in 2023, philanthropic support for Friends of the Heart Institute is still needed to continue to advance and grow our cardiovascular program.
