When we look back at this year, extraordinary is indeed an accurate description, and the advancements we’ve made at Doylestown Health certainly merit it. Among many highlights, we reached major milestones of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health. Several programs received national as well as international distinction for outstanding patient outcomes and innovation, creating pioneering models for standards of care that are now recognized as best practice. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring, we added a new dimension to our definition of extraordinary. Under normal circumstances, demonstrating excellence in patient care is one matter. It’s entirely another to set the bar for combating a new disease that is evolving even as we treat it. A successful response to COVID-19 demands flexibility, innovation, and relentless teamwork—and true to who we are, Doylestown Health answered that demand with bold action. Every member of our organization has selflessly stepped in to serve where they are most needed, and examples of extraordinary ingenuity and compassion abound in every facet of our operation.

Using colors closely associated with healthcare— surgical scrub green, N95 mask white, and hospital gown blue—the flag is a tribute to each and every member of our healthcare team. It is meant to inspire unity in gratitude, nationwide, to those who serve. #UniteInGratitude
The traditions of excellence and innovation established by our founders, the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA), continue to guide us. Throughout our history, the steady leadership of the VIA has been a source of strength and inspiration. Of equal importance, the generous and consistent support of our community helps us maintain our independence so we can swiftly meet the challenges of our time and remain relevant and indispensable for future generations and challenges yet to come.
In this issue, we are pleased to introduce you to Dr. Chanchal Khanna, Marge and Rick Volpe, and Andrea and Ed Noonan; their unique perspectives on Doylestown Health, and their commitment to securing our independence and future through philanthropy are a testament to our standard of care. We are also honored to share the extraordinary story of Howard Brown, our first long-term COVID-19 patient to go home after weeks in intensive care at Doylestown Hospital.
With sincere appreciation, we proudly showcase the countless ways our community has stepped forward to support us and the patients we care for. The generosity of our community—your generosity—truly enables the extraordinary and for that, we are forever and profoundly grateful.

The progress we have made at Doylestown Health in the
past year is a testament to the power of philanthropy. We celebrated the opening of new, state-of-the-art facilities thanks to partnerships with our generous donors—and the timing for this could not have been better. When COVID-19 arrived, our teams of experts could leverage added capacity and the latest technology and equipment to provide the care our patients needed. ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health is comprehensive by design, so gifts of all types and sizes enable us to do many extraordinary things. Among many examples, a grant to purchase equipment that sterilizes PPE (personal protective equipment) allows us to keep our frontline staff safe and conserve scarce resources. The outpouring of support through meals, in-kind donations, and messages of hope has lifted our spirits and renewed our resolve in uncertain times. Through philanthropy, we are truly united by One Vision, as One Health System, and One Extraordinary Community. On behalf of our entire Doylestown Health family, we offer our deepest gratitude for your steadfast partnership and ongoing support as we continue our work to secure the future of healthcare excellence in our community. 1
BOUNDLESS GRATITUDE in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Doylestown Health Foundation invited community members to participate in a virtual rally event—Messages of Hope—to share support for frontline teams and staff at Doylestown Health. Extraordinary notes of heartfelt appreciation and prayers of encouragement poured in. Among them was a message from Andrea and Ed Noonan, who were also inspired to make a gift to strengthen Doylestown Hospital’s COVID-19 response efforts. We recently spoke with them about their support during these unprecedented times. What was your first experience with Doylestown Health?
How do you hope your gift to Doylestown Health makes an impact?
Andrea: We’ve lived in Bucks County for 35 years. Our grandson was born at Doylestown Hospital, and he and our daughter were treated beautifully. Doylestown Hospital is a lifeline in our community, especially in times like these.
Ed: Andrea and I watch the news regularly and as we were learning more about this pandemic, we saw reports of the demand for PPE [personal protective equipment] just skyrocketing. We talked a great deal about what we could do to help that would make an immediate difference. Like another local healthcare institution we support, Doylestown Hospital is a vital part of this community and self-funded. We recognized that in a time of crisis like this pandemic, Doylestown Health would need to marshal resources more quickly and in greater quantities than imagined or budgeted for. So, it was even more important to us that the hospital have immediate support to keep the patients and staff as safe as possible.
Ed: Our friends have also shared their positive experiences with us. We truly value the ready access we have to high-quality healthcare locally; institutions like Doylestown Hospital are the bedrock of this community. What inspired you to participate in the Messages of Hope virtual event? Ed: It was important to us to share our appreciation and gratitude for the healthcare workers putting themselves on the line every day to help people in our community. They take great care of people, and the capable doctors and nurses are always there for us. We take it as a given that we can turn to them, and that’s one of the many reasons we want to support them. Andrea: At the same time, we observed how Doylestown Health was leading the way with the hospital as the “glue” holding the community together. We were encouraged that the hospital was working across Bucks County to protect vulnerable people at the onset of the crisis, especially with senior homes and nursing care facilities.
Andrea: Doylestown Hospital is also a Top 50 heart hospital. That’s a real feather in their cap. We know the doctors and nurses will provide the very best care for patients because it’s what they do every day. That trust is so comforting, because we know we can rely on them if any one of us needs care. Do you believe that Doylestown Health’s position as an independent health system sets it apart? Ed: We know of and admire the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA). They are actually quite extraordinary with the tradition they began! In an era of healthcare consolidation, having a community-funded hospital is important. Decisions can be made for the community, by the community.
In these uncertain times, what do you hope for the future of Doylestown Hospital? Andrea: We are grateful that we can give back and we hope that it makes a difference for people in our community for a long time. Ed: I think it’s extremely encouraging that Doylestown Health is independent. Just like any other business, the hospital needs to spend cash, and people depend on them for their livelihoods. The ongoing capital campaigns are important, certainly, as is the annual and unrestricted support for times like these. I hope that folks in our community will continue to do what they can to support the hospital so it remains a vital and essential part of our community.
“At a time when our lives and our very society hang in the
balance, we are thankful beyond words to the healthcare workers who are selflessly protecting and caring for us at great risk to themselves and their families. We are fortunate that there are such angels among us. Our prayers are with you and our gratitude is boundless.” Message of Hope from Andrea and Ed Noonan
AN EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY under normal circumstances , the phrase “I don’t feel good” is not immediate cause for alarm. But as Howard Brown said these exact words to his wife, Lisa, cases of COVID-19 were on the rise in Bucks County. In the days and weeks that followed, Howard tested positive and battled this unpredictable new disease. While his life hung in the balance, Lisa and her family placed their faith, hope, and trust in the teams at Doylestown Hospital to save his life.
All things considered, life was normal in mid-March of this year. Howard and Lisa Brown were looking forward to their youngest son’s upcoming high school graduation in June, the return of his brother from college, and an array of other typical family activities. National news of the novel coronavirus and the disease it caused, COVID-19, was concerning, but not yet prevalent enough in Bucks County to cause significant worry. Howard, an attorney, kept up with the busy pace at his solo law practice and Lisa continued to engage with patients and colleagues through her job as a patient transport coordinator for Doylestown Hospital. Lisa and Howard Brown with sons Josh and Evan
The Moment Life Changed Normal life came to a halt on March 31 when Howard said to Lisa, “I don’t feel good.” Given Lisa’s position at Doylestown Hospital, and with her father’s input as a family practice physician, Howard was quickly isolated at home. When he tested positive for COVID-19 just a few days later, his fever and other symptoms were still manageable. Eight days from the onset of symptoms, the Brown family’s physician, Robert Grabowski, MD, was concerned that Howard’s condition was not improving and recommended he go to the hospital immediately. On April 7, Lisa watched Howard leave the driveway and make the short drive to the Doylestown Hospital Emergency Department alone.
AN EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY continued Uncertain Times As Howard arrived at Doylestown Hospital, Bucks County was rapidly nearing a total of 1,000 cases of COVID-19. Doylestown Health had been on alert since January, and had already taken a lead in several statewide COVID-19 response groups. With the recent opening of the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care, Doylestown Hospital’s capacity to accept patients from the predicted surge of novel coronavirus cases had increased. Preoccupied with worry and the knowledge that she and her son Josh had also tested positive for COVID-19 (although they were mostly asymptomatic), Lisa waited anxiously for news of Howard. The first phone call from Doylestown Hospital was from Matt, a nurse in the Emergency Department, who explained the admissions process. “He told us to seal off Howard’s at-home isolation room for three days, and then ‘Lysol the hell out of it,’” Lisa remembers.
Even with these innovative approaches, on Friday, April 10, nurses in the COVID ICU called Lisa to facilitate one last video visit before Howard was placed on a ventilator. “My sons had a hard time even staying in the room. It was difficult to see him like that,” Lisa recalls. Over the next 24 days, the ICU teams drew upon every resource possible in a race to save Howard’s life. “It was heart-wrenching and emotional for our ICU team to care for him when he was so very sick on a ventilator, being turned onto his stomach every day by the proning team, often anxious and struggling to breathe,” said Terri Long, MSN, RN, CCRN, NE-BC, Director, Critical Care and Cardiology Services. “Howard received the best evidence-based treatment, including medications and therapies to help him win the battle against COVID-19,” she added. Dr. Szekely, who oversaw Howard’s treatment in the ICU at Doylestown Hospital says, “We have an incredible multi-disciplinary team which meets every day to develop a game plan for each
Once it was determined that his body cleared the virus—a huge step—Howard was transferred to the “clean” ICU where speech, physical, occupational, and respiratory therapies could begin in earnest along with dialysis. Lisa was cleared to return to work in patient transport at Doylestown Hospital the day before Howard’s transfer to inpatient rehabilitation. She herself was permitted to transport Howard from his hospital room to Moss Rehabilitation, a comprehensive inpatient facility affiliated with Doylestown Health and located onsite. “We could focus on moving forward and getting him ready to come home,” she recalls. “It was a huge relief!” Now at Moss Rehab, Howard was weak but making progress each day. Sandy Horgan, RN, Howard’s nurse remembers: “The first day I met Howard, he was very anxious. When one struggles to breathe for as long as he did, anxiety is a perfectly normal feeling.” Visits from Lisa and his sons, Josh and Evan, lifted his spirits as they stood outside the solarium window in full view
Lisa made a gift to Doylestown Health Foundation along with her letter. “In Judaism, the number 18 holds a special meaning,” she wrote. “It means chai, or life. Therefore, please find my gift as a multiple of 18, for saving my husband’s life.” Deeply touched by the exceptional care Howard had received, Lisa’s parents, Carol and Horace Barsh, MD, made a gift while Howard was in the COVID ICU. Jane Brown, Howard’s mother, also gave a gift to Moss Rehabilitation. Ellyn Halper, Howard’s sister, answered the call for an urgent need and made an in-kind contribution of hundreds of N95 masks to Doylestown Health. “We are honored that members of Howard’s family stepped forward in support of Doylestown Hospital in the midst of all that was going on with Howard’s care and recovery. That they took the time to recognize our caregivers and offer their generous support is truly meaningful to all of us,” says Laura Wortman, Vice President and Chief Development Officer. A Triumphant Sendoff On May 28, the Doylestown Hospital lobby was the backdrop for a truly memorable celebration. Although their faces were masked, the eyes of those present glistened with tears of joy and pride as they gathered to witness a moment months in the making. After seven weeks at Doylestown Hospital, Howard was discharged with great fanfare into the arms of his family and friends. “Watching Howard reunite with his family, no longer separated by windows, was remarkable,” says Sandy Horgan, who, along with her colleagues, will always remember the happy tears shed that day.
Life in the Balance The quick progression of the disease and Howard’s rapid decline necessitated a transfer from the COVID unit to the COVID ICU within a matter of days. “Horrifying is the best way to describe it,” says Lisa when recalling the severity of her fifty-one-year-old husband’s condition. “Why him?” she remembers wondering at the time. Les A. Szekely, MD, FCCP, DABSM, Director, Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine, along with his colleagues, also questioned why Howard, an otherwise healthy person, was in multiple organ failure and declining so quickly. “Our critical care teams experimented with every method we researched and thought might work,” he recalls. Working 14-hour days, they raced to find new treatments that could halt and reverse the progression of the disease. In Howard’s case, “we initially used the prone positioning and a cocktail of medicines and vitamins, and when he did not show improvements, we quickly resorted to two doses of convalescent plasma,” said Dr. Szekely. “When Howard continued to deteriorate, we administered an experimental medication yet unproven, currently investigational, and reserved only for the treatment of the most serious COVID-19 cases with threatening respiratory failure.” 6
individual patient. This team includes intensivists, nurses, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, and an ICU pharmacist, among others.” According to Siddavatam Naveen Reddy, MD, a hospitalist with the ICU team, “Howard was pulled back from the clutches of death by this awesome team at Doylestown Hospital.” Turning the Corner After a month, the critical care team was now cautiously optimistic as Howard’s condition improved. The treatments seemed to be working. “Manuel Jimenez-Serrano, MD, on the critical care team was the first one to give us a glimmer of hope after all that time,” Lisa says. “He said he’d see Howard in his office in four to six weeks.” Every day was a step forward, but the exciting possibility of Howard’s recovery was tempered by the reality of the surprising and severe turns COVID-19 could take. “I try to prepare families for the rollercoaster ride that this illness can take you on—two steps forward, one step back. Howard really hung in there,” says Dr. Szekely.
while Sandy observed. “Howard waved while talking to them on the phone,” she says. “I could see and hear the profound emotions shared through that window—warmth, hope, and longing.” Enduring Gratitude With Howard’s outlook improving and his return home on the horizon, Lisa found time to write a heartfelt letter of gratitude addressed to “the amazing staff at Doylestown Hospital.” Lisa thanked the critical care teams—physicians, ICU nurses, technicians, therapists, chaplains—and many others involved in Howard’s care. “They will forever be a part of our story,” she says. “I know that every single person who has been a part of his journey is invested in him and rooting for him.” At one point early on in Howard’s illness, Lisa was asked if she wanted to transfer him to a bigger hospital. “I have never been prouder of where I work,” she wrote. “The care that my husband received rivals any of the Philadelphia teaching hospitals. The doctors and nurses were outstanding in their communication with me, especially difficult since I couldn’t physically be with my husband. I challenge you to find better care.”
Unexpected Silver Linings Now a grateful patient, Howard continues his progress with outpatient rehab and pauses at times to consider all that’s transpired. “I wouldn’t wish this experience on anyone,” Howard shares, “and I certainly don’t recommend it as a weight loss plan!” With time to reflect, Howard is navigating the complex feelings of lost time and profound gratitude for the gift of life. “I got to hit the reset button,” he says. “Things were good before, but this experience has given me new perspective and it’s made me a better father, husband, son, brother, and friend.” Howard is profoundly grateful to be able to convey his own thanks to the clinical teams that came together to save his life. “ It’s been truly humbling, and I’m so grateful for the incredible doctors and nurses at
Doylestown Hospital. They gave me my life back.” ~ Howard Brown Learn more about how you can make an impact on patients like Howard Brown with a gift to the Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine. Visit DoylestownHealthFoundation.org/ClarkCenter 7
through volunteering and her support of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health, Dr. Chanchal Khanna deepens her connections with patients at Doylestown Hospital and fellow Villagers at Pine Run Retirement Community.
retired pathologist and member of the Doylestown Health medical staff for over twenty years, Chanchal Khanna, MD, enjoys being active at Pine Run Retirement Community. “Moving to Pine Run five years ago was easy,” says Dr. Khanna. “It’s in a country setting where I can enjoy nature and stay close to family.” Dr. Khanna also draws inspirations from her surroundings: “This place helps me stay active with gardening, going to the fitness center, and my volunteer work at the Doylestown Hospital Cancer Institute,” she says. Dr. Khanna and her late husband, also a physician, emigrated from India in the 1960s and practiced in New Jersey and Pennsylvania hospitals. During her tenure at Doylestown Hospital, Dr. Khanna witnessed great progress. “Advanced testing used to be outsourced,” she recalls, “and now complex tests are done right in the hospital. It’s a benefit to patients.” Pine Run Retirement Community’s distinction within the Doylestown Health network is also important to Dr. Khanna. High-quality healthcare is readily accessible for residents, backed by the clinical expertise of Doylestown Hospital. This integration allows Dr. Khanna to stay engaged in the healthcare community. “It’s my hospital,” she shares proudly. “Our community hospital has care as good as, or better than, that of a university hospital. The physicians and nurses are of the highest caliber.” A pathologist does not usually have an opportunity to interact directly with patients. “I was very well-versed in many types of cancer,” she recalls. “I often thought about the patients and the impact that a cancer diagnosis would have.” In retirement, Dr. Khanna eventually realized her desire to work hands-on as a volunteer in Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute. Volunteering in the Cancer Institute connects Dr. Khanna to her own experience of losing her mother to the disease. “She died quite young in her early fifties back in India and I couldn’t be there to support her in-person,” she remembers. With this in mind, Dr. Khanna empathizes with the patients she helps. “They touch my heart,” she says. “I might only offer them a cup of tea or a blanket, but I’m inspired by their courage. I get more out of it than I can give to them.” Staff in the Cancer Institute are grateful for Dr. Khanna’s presence in the Outpatient Infusion Center. “Dr. Khanna is a sweet soul who cares deeply for people,” says Laura Heacock, MSN, CRNP, Doylestown Health’s survivorship clinic nurse practitioner. “As a pathologist who
has diagnosed thousands of cancer patients, she understands the gravity of that diagnosis. She has such compassion for them and is such a hard worker.” In addition to her volunteer work, Dr. Khanna also found a way to combine her passion for people and health with a generous gift to ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health, the comprehensive philanthropic campaign advancing growth in all facets of Doylestown Health. An early priority of the campaign, the new 37,000-square-foot Pine Run Community Center features multiple dining venues, entertainment galleries, a swimming pool, and fitness facilities. Dr. Khanna enjoys all the amenities in the new center, but her favorites are the fitness facilities and indoor pool. She says sharing this with others promotes healthy bodies and healthy minds, “which are all necessary for a healthy society!” Maria Santangelo, Executive Director of Pine Run Retirement Community, says, “Dr. Khanna is always thinking of the well-being of our residents. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Khanna offered to help with education and patient care if needed.” The support of people like Dr. Khanna “allows us to improve our facilities and offer more ways for our residents to live healthy, engaged lives in retirement,” says Santangelo. Giving back and volunteering are essential to the way Dr. Khanna views her life purpose. “My father taught me that one must contribute to society. Not just money but time, talent, and skills. It’s a responsibility, a duty—a little something of a bigger picture,” she says. “Deep within all of us we have a longing to make a difference,” Dr. Khanna shares. “As one person, I can’t build a big hospital, but I can add my contribution to others and we can build it together, not just for my generation but for future generations. The women of the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) planted the seed and each decade it grows. It’s our responsibility to keep it going.”

UNITING FAITH AND PHILANTHROPY guided by faith and serving others , Marge and Rick Volpe have long supported a wide range of worthy causes. The impact of their giving spans the globe, from building trails in the national parks, to funding entrepreneurs in Rwanda, and now closer to home with their recent gifts to Doylestown Health through ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health.
Marge and Rick Volpe are people of action—the kind of action that creates opportunities for people to lead better lives. While they were raising their four young children in the late 1980s, Rick founded Asset Planning Services, a wealth management firm based in Harleysville, Pennsylvania. Amidst the busyness of family life and building a business, Marge and Rick found time to prioritize their faith and service projects, including annual mission trips to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Their shared love for the outdoors took shape in the stewardship of public lands through multiple trips with Wilderness Volunteers in the western United States. Through Opportunity International, the Volpes traveled to Rwanda to observe firsthand the power of microfinance. “I got such a good feeling about humanity,” Rick recalls about their time in Rwanda. “The microloans are a powerful way to open the door for opportunity, dignity, and hope.” Closer to home, Marge now volunteers regularly at the Indian Valley Library, the Pregnancy Resource Clinic of North Penn, and at Calvary Church of Souderton.
CELEBRATING LEGACY AND LIFETIME GIVING
UNITING FAITH AND PHILANTHROPY continued When working with clients at Asset Planning Services, Rick and his team ensure they plan for a solid financial future in retirement. “We also encourage them to consider what their wealth can ultimately do for others, and not just for themselves,” says Rick. “Our standard client review commentary includes a quote by Marcus Aurelius: ‘The only wealth which you will keep forever is the wealth you have given away.’ This is something we take to heart.” As pragmatic as they are philanthropic, Marge and Rick consider access to high-quality healthcare an important part of their future and the future of people in the community. “Our first encounter with Doylestown Hospital was the birth of our younger grandson—a joyful occasion!” says Marge. “Our daughter-in-law, Alexii, had a wonderful birth experience and she spoke so highly of how kind and caring the staff was.” Not long after, the Volpes readily accepted an invitation to learn more about ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health from friend and colleague Richard Clark, One Vision Campaign Chair. “It was really compelling to hear what Doylestown Health had planned for the new Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion and beyond,” says Rick. The Volpes’ generous gifts played an integral part in reaching a major milestone of the One Vision Campaign with the opening of the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care to patients in January of 2020. Opening its doors proved timelier than anyone could have anticipated. Just months after welcoming the first patients to the new, state-ofthe-art facility, urgent need arose for additional patient capacity due to a new pandemic disease—COVID-19. The flexible features of the new universal, private patient rooms in the Della Penna CVICU/ ICU allowed them to be temporarily re-designated as general ICU/ IMU rooms. This enabled the establishment of three separate units
within the hospital for isolating and treating COVID-19 patients at different levels of severity separate from traditional ICU/IMU patients. Such real-time flexibility allowed multidisciplinary critical care teams to leverage innovative treatment protocols and focus solely on the patients’ needs.
“The generosity of donors like Marge and Rick enabled us to open a first-class facility, which filled a critical need for additional space for patient care as we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.” Jim Brexler
“Throughout the history of Doylestown Health, support from our community has been nothing short of extraordinary,” says Jim Brexler, President and CEO, Doylestown Health, “and our ability to rise to this challenge is a direct result of our incredible relationship with the people in our community and their willingness to step forward and invest in us.” Laura Wortman, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, adds, “We are so grateful to the Volpes. Their gifts, combined with others, enabled us to open the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care as we planned, and keep us on track with our projections to open the Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine in the spring of 2021.” As researchers learn more about COVID-19, treatment protocols continue to evolve at Doylestown Hospital. “By designating their gifts to our Second Century Fund,” Wortman continues, “Marge and Rick’s gifts have given us the flexibility to meet our most urgent needs without delay.”
Philanthropic investments lay the foundation for Doylestown Health’s second century of care.
Visionary leaders With deep gratitude, Doylestown Health applauds this esteemed group. Our Visionary Leaders represent lifetime giving or leadership gifts of $1,000,000 or more to Doylestown Health. These exemplary individuals and organizations share the same philanthropic spirit that established Doylestown Hospital in 1923. Generous support at this transformational level will lead us into our second century of delivering exceptional care.

rising to new challenges Since its inception, Doylestown Health’s ability to rise to new challenges has been linked to the generosity of our community. In April 2020, longstanding partners and supporters, Carol and Louis Della Penna and family, committed $100,000 as a giving challenge. In just one month, generous donors exceeded the original goal of the Della Penna Challenge with gifts totaling nearly $125,000. The outpouring of support continued beyond the challenge, with new donors making first-time gifts in record numbers. Together, these gifts helped Doylestown Health meet the needs associated with the COVID-19 health crisis, and support our clinical teams on the front line. COVID-19 Response | Giving At-a-Glance • Della Penna Challenge raised a total of $248,941, nearly 25% more than the initial goal • More than $800,000 has been raised to date for COVID-19-related response efforts (Della Penna Challenge, unrestricted gifts, and other new gifts) • Out of the 750 donors who gave in this time period, more than half are first-time donors We are deeply grateful for the heartfelt support of our community.

Over the weeks that followed, they kept in close touch and delivered a steady stream of homemade cloth masks that shored up the hospital’s supply. We are grateful for the combined efforts of Byers’ Choice Ltd., Mask Makers of Doylestown, PPE Makers of Doylestown, and Doylestown Neighbors United in offering their tireless support and invaluable aid.

$9.5 MILLION Remaining
With One Vision, Doylestown Health Foundation gratefully recognizes the significant partnership of our donors whose generous support has advanced our strategic priorities and launched a new era of philanthropy at Doylestown Health. Since the launch of the comprehensive campaign on July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2020, our community has responded with $65.5 million in giving.
Two years since the public launch of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health, our Doylestown Hospital and Pine Run Retirement Community campuses have been visibly transformed with the completion of the earliest signature capital priorities, the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care and the Pine Run Community Center. With the opening of the Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion in December, Doylestown Health’s nationally recognized cardiovascular program now resides in a stateof-the-art facility that matches our nationally ranked programs. For residents of Pine Run, gracious living has been enhanced by the full complement of amenities featured within the Community Center. Our momentum continues with the construction of the Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine and the Ambulatory Center. Both facilities, opening in the coming year, will expand our capability to provide expert, compassionate care to patients in our community. Visionary projects and programs demand equally bold investments, and philanthropy will continue to play an integral part in fulfilling the vision for our future. Our newly created Legacy Endowment Fund will establish a permanent source of funding to support new initiatives and our most urgent needs, among other priorities. Endowments will also support Doylestown Health’s ability to remain independent well beyond our centennial year. As healthcare grows more complex, the importance of endowment funding is even more relevant. We are thankful for the incredible partnerships and generosity of our donors. We invite you to join us and help secure our vision, One Vision, for our second century of care.

DOYLESTOWN HEALTH FOUNDATION:
ENABLING THE EXTRAORDINARY
as the philanthropic arm of doylestown health , the Doylestown
Health Foundation raises funds to safeguard the future of excellence in patient care and improve the quality of life for all members of the Doylestown community. In a recent interview, Laura Wortman, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, shares more about the role of the Foundation—with a special focus on giving in this unprecedented year.
Q How has philanthropy played a part in building Doylestown Health? A The tradition of philanthropic support at Doylestown Health was born with our founders, the
Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA), and their unwavering dedication to the concept that people in our community should be able to get the best healthcare possible right here in Doylestown. We are fortunate that the community has stepped forward to support Doylestown Health, which has grown from an eight-bed hospital in 1923 to the healthcare system we are today, serving thousands across the region.
Q How has the role of the Foundation expanded and changed with the inception of ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health?
A As Doylestown Health has grown and expanded, so has the role of the Foundation. This
campaign is our most ambitious fundraising effort to date with a goal of $75 million. We have a clearly defined vision and strategy for the second century of care at Doylestown Health and the Foundation will continue to play a major role in realizing that vision. Because the campaign is comprehensive, we are raising funds for long-term strategic priorities—facilities, programs, and people— across Doylestown Health. This is in addition to raising funds annually through leadership and planned giving, special events, and other projects.
Q How does this year compare to others in terms of philanthropic giving?
A We are proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish
Q What were some of the ways the COVID-19 response impacted fundraising efforts this year? A Instead of slowing us down, the pandemic created new opportunities for our partners in philanthropy to get involved in meaningful ways. The Foundation is a connector—channeling the goodwill of our community into action to meet the immediate needs of the hospital.
Some of our donors even shifted their business operations to produce essential safety equipment for us to prevent shortages. We received and organized donations of food, medical supplies, PPE, comfort items for our clinical teams, and incredible messages of support. We are proud to feature some of these stories in this issue of the Philanthropy Report, and many more can be viewed on our website. It’s exciting to demonstrate to our donors that they are making a difference.
Q Does philanthropy impact Doylestown Health’s ability to remain independent? What are the advantages to being an independent health system in an era of healthcare consolidation?
A Philanthropic investments have been, and will always be, a vital part of Doylestown Health’s success and standing as an independent health system. Our independence is a strength, and gives us the flexibility to innovate and act quickly when needed. Our response to COVID-19 is a great example. Since construction of the Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine is still underway, we have an opportunity to incorporate lessons learned from COVID-19 and realtime feedback from physicians and care providers. We are already making enhancements to the construction of the new ICU that will elevate care, comfort, and safety for patients. Philanthropy truly enables the extraordinary at Doylestown Health and we are grateful for every gift and every donor.

this year at Doylestown Health. As always, all of our achievements have been supported by philanthropy. When COVID-19 hit Bucks County, and the hospital’s
needs became more urgent and more specific, the response from our community was inspiring. Since March, we received over $800,000 in donations from 750 donors, hundreds of whom were first-time donors answering the call for help. That kind of support stands out among the many things that make this community so remarkable.
