Fashion show Supporting Jefferson Methodist Hospital Respiratory Care Services in South Philadelphia


From Our Foundation President

This year marks our 11th annual fundraiser. As a new member of the team, it has been remarkable to see the level of effort and dedication required to make this event successful. I am grateful for our Board members, Fashion Show Committee, and volunteers who made today possible. To our colleagues and sponsors, thank you for supporting and contributing to the Foundation’s Mission and Vision. Through the Foundation Grant Program, we collaborate with key partners to provide access to healthcare services, education, and other resources to those in need. As the healthcare industry and South Philadelphia evolves, we see tremendous opportunities to further enhance our connection to the community. Along with our Jefferson Health-South Philadelphia colleagues, we are optimistic about the future and the role the Foundation plays in improving the lives of those we serve. Please visit to learn more about ways we can partner together. Dennis Delisle, Sc.D. FACHE Foundation President & CEO

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.

breathe easy south philly the Methodist Hospital Foundation is helping people in the region with respiratory disorders breathe easier. Proceeds from this year’s Fashion Show fundraiser will benefit the expansion of respiratory care services in our South Philadelphia community in conjunction with the Jane and leonard Korman Respiratory institute in Philadelphia. Services include lung cancer screenings and a CoPD Center of Excellence. the rate of respiratory related diseases in the u.S. is on the rise—one in four Americans suffers from serious chronic or life threatening respiratory diseases, leading to emergency room visits, diminished quality of life, and death.

the Korman respiratory institute offers a full array of services, including: •

lung nodule screening and monitoring to identify if and when intervention is needed, as well as identify early-stage lung cancer or other lung diseases

Advanced technologies, such as low-dose Ct, endobronchial ultrasound and PEt lung scans

Diagnostic tests

Minimally invasive surgeries

targeted radiation therapies to prevent progression of lung cancer and other lung diseases

Access to patient care

the new respiratory program will provide patients with low dose Ct lung scans

My wife, Jane, and i know what it’s like to live with a disease that threatens something as fundamental to life as breathing. it’s been our dream to help provide a premier resource for respiratory health for the community. thanks to Jefferson and national Jewish health, it’s a reality. –leonardKorman Korman –leonard
