Though healthcare can be complex and multifaceted, it is really about the people who deliver it. From the dedicated physicians, nurses, and medical technicians, to the therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists, volunteers, and many others who fill vital roles in delivering patient-centered care, Doylestown Health relies on the people who do this 24/7, and who do it in a way that sets our health system apart. They deliver healthcare excellence, taking every procedure, every conversation, every action to the next level. They are the reason we receive national recognition, and inspire the generosity of an extraordinary community through ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health. In fact, it is truly summed up by the theme of this year’s National Hospital Week (May 8 to May 14): We Are Health Care.
Last week, we took the opportunity to honor our nurses for National Nurses Week (May 6 to May 12), and celebrate scholarship and award recipients during the Nursing Recognition Program on May 12. Marvin and Dee Ann Woodall, who have generously contributed to nursing education and other initiatives at Doylestown Health for years, announced their pledge to match all gifts to the Nursing Scholarship Fund up to $25,000!
Yesterday, May 19, Doylestown Hospital celebrated nurses with Nursing Field Day, an annual tradition revived to its full scale for the first time since before the pandemic. Survivor-themed “tribes” proved up to the challenge as they gathered outside to play games and enjoy refreshments and fellowship in appreciation of their ongoing dedication.
We also celebrated the latest campaign milestone with the ribbon-cutting and dedication of the Clark Center for Breast Imaging on April 26. Click here to see photos and watch a brief video recapping the ribbon-cutting. Clark Breast Imaging opened its doors to patients on May 2, ushering in a new era in diagnostic imaging at Doylestown Hospital with the latest equipment in a welcoming, beautiful space on the ground floor where we can receive more patients than ever before. We are so thankful for the generosity of the Clark family and the many others who contributed to making this campaign priority a reality.
There are still naming opportunities available in the Clark Center for Breast Imaging and throughout Doylestown Hospital—including Children’s Village, which will be under construction soon—and Pine Run Retirement Community. We invite you to learn more about these exciting opportunities to support the people and programs of Doylestown Health, and share your legacy to inspire others in the future.
When you make a gift to Doylestown Health Foundation, you make it possible for us to invest in the technology, facilities, and clinical expertise—to invest in people—that will enhance Doylestown Health’s ability to care for the members of our community today and well into our second century of care. Thank you for demonstrating your commitment to this vital resource in our community with your generosity
