C ELEBRATING T EN Y EARS Supporting Health Care in South Philadelphia Dr. Scott Stewart Founder’s Award presented to James E. Robinson


From Our Chairman

How we get to this point each year — and for the last 10 years — is a monumental feat. One that cannot be done without my fellow board members, Fashion Show Committee, people behind the scenes — those of you in the audience and our sponsors who make all of the Foundation’s visions and dream a reality with your support. Success of the Foundation becomes more critical every year. The Foundation’s support of community groups, through the Grant program or by direct support to Methodist Hospital’s health services directly make a positive impact in the lives of South Philadelphians. That was Dr. Scott Stewart’s goal — to offer health and wellness to the community — when he first envisioned Methodist Hospital over 125 years ago. The Foundation and every group we support continues that vision by reaching into the heart of the community with a helping hand. Your participation here today, makes our hand stronger. Discover at other ways we can partner on this journey.

J. Jeffrey Grant Chairman, Methodist Hospital Foundation

Since 1998 the Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in community grants.

Community Paramedicine

At no cost to the patient, Methodist Hospital and JeffSTAT have piloted a new population health initiative in South Philadelphia aimed at providing the right care for recovery and reduced hospital readmissions. During the month after discharge, a paramedic pays ongoing visits to the patient to help with their transition home.

AHO Athlete Health Organization administers

free physicals to scholar athletes grades nine to 12. Thanks to the support of the Foundation AHO has grown from screening a few hundred children to thousands. This program has prevented potentially unnecessary tragedies from occurring on the playing field.

Methodist Hospital Foundation

JeffFIT is a comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation program providing one-on-one care with the latest advanced equipment and complete stroke coordination. All provided with optimal patient convenience at Methodist Hospital.

St. Thomas Aquinas

an Independence Mission School, serves culturally diverse students in an underserved neighborhood of South Philadelphia. They lacked a science lab and physical education program until the Foundation funded a grant to provide these services.


focuses on wellness + education + justice in building bridges between providers, recipients and community leaders across economic political and religious spectra. They seek a community that recognizes the dignity and respect owed all persons.

Following the greatest need for Methodist Hospital the Foundation institutes large capital projects—initiatives.

Women's Diagnostic Center

The Foundation funding of a new Women's Diagnostic Center allows women to schedule an appointment within weeks of their initial call. Mammogram services were expanded to accommodate more than 12,000 women each year, a 40 percent increase.

Acute Dialysis Unit

The Foundation met the challenge of an aging population and rising rates of hypertension and diabetes in our community by funding a state-ofthe-art Acute Kidney Dialysis Unit.

Methodist Hospital Foundation

Community Nursing

The Foundation administers Nursing Scholarships in memory of Anne Rogan, Methodist Hospital School of Nursing class of 2006. Anne lost her 12 year battle with cancer in 2008.

Outpatient Cardiac Rehab

Endoscopy Suite

When the construction dust settled on this nationally certified program, the Foundation had fully funded the expanded state-of-the-art center for Jefferson’s Methodist Hospital Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation program.

The Foundation responded when the Board was presented with the facts of an increase in colon cancer among the aging population in South Philadelphia. The Endoscopy Suite helps to save lives by the early detection of colon cancer.

The Power of

For 10 years, the Foundation’s Fashion Fundraiser has paved the way to better health care for the community with the ability to aid thousands.

Here are a few highlights ...

cardiac monitoring Through the generosity of the Foundation, the Methodist Hospital Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit purchased telemetry equipment that allows it to broaden patient care to include those requiring cardiac monitoring.

unity clinic

The Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (ADROP) Unity Clinic is a place where the uninsured and underinsured can find primary care at no cost. It could not have happened without early support from the Foundation.

parish nursing

Several days a week, Methodist/ Jefferson Parish Nurse Alicia Parker, RN, brings on-site resources to the congregation of Tindley Temple United Methodist Church and its community through the Parish Nursing Program.

Dr. Scott Stewart Founder’s Award

A Lifetime of Giving

James E. Robinson, has given almost 30 years of service to Methodist Hospital and the South Philadelphia community. This award is bestowed by the Methodist Hospital Foundation and was first awarded in 1992.

He began his decades-long service to Methodist and its mission in

1989. In his current positions as Chief Administrative Officer of Jefferson’s Methodist Division and Senior Vice President from Jefferson University Hospitals, Jim’s focus, drive and forward thinking have culminated in him being honored with the 2018 Dr. Scott Stewart Founder’s Award. Jim finds it humbling to be the first administrator to win this award.

“I might be the one recognized, but this is a recognition of the work our teams have been doing over decades. It’s the entire hospital and its staff working over years to keep us viable and successful,” Jim says. “Being at Methodist, I like the feeling you get, that sense of the importance a hospital is making and can make on the community. I like seeing health care in action — seeing it today, tomorrow and the next day.” In addition to his work with the hospital and the Foundation in serving the health care needs of the South Philadelphia community, Jim dedicates his time to other causes. These include the Police Athletic League, the Methodist Home for Children, the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia and St. Thomas Aquinas School. The common thread of each of these organizations is providing opportunities that enable people, especially children, to reach for a better life.
