April has been a month of celebrations and gaining new ground in ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health. We have exciting news and developments to share, and even more to look forward to.
First, we want to celebrate the most recent visionary gift from longstanding philanthropic partners and honorary campaign chairs, Alex and Pat Gorsky. As you may have seen in an announcement we made earlier this month, the Gorskys generously committed to a $5 million gift—in addition to their initial commitment of $5 million made in 2017. Their gift will be designated in support of cardiovascular care, via the Gorsky Heart and Vascular Suite at Doylestown Hospital, and the rebuilding of Children’s Village, our early childhood education center on the Doylestown Hospital campus. You can read all about the Gorskys and their dedication to our community’s health and well-being here.
We are so grateful, both for the leadership and counsel of the Gorskys as our honorary campaign chairs and ambassadors, and for their generosity that inspires thousands of others—including so many of our Associates, Medical Staff, and Volunteers. With their most recent gift and the continued contributions of our donors, the One Vision Campaign has exceeded $91 million in total gift commitments. As we approach our Centennial and the final year of the campaign in 2023, our $100 million goal is within reach. We thank you for being an integral part of our progress.
This month, we honored the members of our Cornerstone Society with a luncheon hosted by Árdana Food & Drink in Warrington. It was our pleasure to honor the generosity and foresight of our donors who have named Doylestown Health in their estate plans, and to gather for some long overdue fellowship in person.
Also this month, we are proud to release a brief new film highlighting two recent milestones of the One Vision Campaign. In “The Art of Healing,” we offer an inside look at the important services and expert staff of the Clark Outpatient Rehabilitation Center and Doylestown Health’s cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program. The video features interviews with leaders in our outpatient nutrition, cardiac, physical, and occupational therapy programs: Deborah Davis, Mona Dunlap, Dave Martens, and Cheryl Talamo. I invite you to take a few moments to watch and learn more about these unique programs that set our health system apart.
In addition to the milestones mentioned above, we will celebrate yet another on Tuesday, April 26, with the ribbon-cutting of the Clark Center for Breast Imaging. Formerly known as the Women’s Diagnostic Center, Clark Breast Imaging encompasses both the site at the Health and Wellness Center in Warrington, and a new and larger suite at Doylestown Hospital opening to patients on May 2. The Clark Center for Breast Imaging represents the next era for detection and treatment of breast disease at Doylestown Health. The new space will be able to serve an additional 2,500 patients each year—increased from the 17,000 currently served—providing a full spectrum of imaging techniques with the most advanced diagnostic equipment for preventive screening and early detection of breast disease.
We look forward to celebrating the generosity of Dick and Angela Clark, chairs of the One Vision Campaign, and their family, as well as the generosity of the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) and numerous others who supported this project. Look for photos and more about Clark Breast Imaging soon.
Our progress—and our future—depend on your support and everything you do for Doylestown Health. Thank you for being the reason our community believes in and supports us, and for being part of our success and our future.
