On Monday, August 23, 2021, Doylestown Health celebrated the latest achievement of its $100 million comprehensive campaign, ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health, with a ribbon-cutting and dedication of the Shindell Concourse.
The Shindell Concourse is part of ongoing plans to renovate Doylestown Hospital for improved patient and visitor access and wayfinding. It joins the Gorsky Atrium in the Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion—opened in December 2019—to the Wound Care Lobby on the west side of the main hospital building. The concourse creates a more convenient route for patients, visitors, and caregivers, and will serve as the new point for patient discharge.
The Shindells made their pledge of $1 million in February, inspired by the One Vision Campaign, which launched publicly in 2018, and has raised more than $80 million to date toward its $100 million goal. A small, private gathering was held for the family and their guests at Doylestown Hospital to mark the completion of the concourse, and to honor the life of the late Donna Shindell.
The new addition to the hospital building is part of a more comprehensive campaign priority that will see sweeping renovations to Doylestown Hospital in coming years. Plans include a conference suite and learning center for both community and medical staff use, new construction to streamline patient navigation to key areas of the hospital, and further renovations to allow for the transition to an all-private bed facility in the future.
Doylestown Health is beginning a bold new chapter as we approach our second century of healthcare delivery.
