leading

with care

A t Doylestown Health, we firmly believe that placing the needs and best interests of the patient first

empowers everyone in the organization to lead with care. Our founders led with this philosophy as they established the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) in 1895. They knew that leading with care meant developing relationships with members of the Doylestown community to advance their mission.

We are proud of the ways in which every dimension of care continues to be meaningfully represented and integrated within Doylestown Health. In this issue we feature stories and insights from our supporters connected by this powerful theme. It is an honor to highlight the rich legacy of the VIA and everything they have made possible through four decades of the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens. The impact of their giving allows us to advance new initiatives and positions us to address the healthcare needs of our community for years to come. Theirs has been an extraordinary partnership, one that endures the test of time. Also in this issue, we interview longstanding supporters Jeanne and John Hubbard for their take on what it means for Doylestown Health to lead with care and how that has evolved over time. Finally, we are pleased to welcome new donors Steve Novello and John Conway to the Doylestown Health family. They bring new perspective to the value of leading with care through their personal experiences and observations.

As we embark on a number of transformational initiatives to set the stage for our next century, we salute all of our donors and friends who have supported us. We also invite long-standing and new friends alike to join us in shaping our future— one where leading with care remains a top priority.

On behalf of our physicians, associates, volunteers, and the entire Doylestown Health family, please accept our deepest gratitude for all you do to support us now and in the future.

PARTNERS IN PHILANTHROPY healthcare champions Jeanne and John Hubbard are the embodiment of a quintessential partnership. Married for 37 years, their personal and professional lives have taken them around the country and around the world landing in the Doylestown area not once, but twice. Doylestown Health Foundation recently spoke with them about their ongoing involvement and philanthropic support.

Q Jeanne and John, how did you first become acquainted with Doylestown Health? A Jeanne: When we lived in Montgomeryville in the late ’80s, we got to know Doylestown Hospital

John: Back then it was a very nice community hospital. We moved out of state and when we returned to the area after nearly five years, we knew we really wanted to get more connected with the community and Doylestown Health became the conduit because of Jeanne’s involvement with caregiving for our parents.

Q What does it mean to “Lead with Care”? In your experience, how

have you observed physicians, nurses and others leading with care at Doylestown Health?

A Jeanne: No matter intellectually what you know about a disease or

stage of life—sometimes you feel really alone. There could be millions of people with the same thing but you can still feel isolated. Physicians and nurses who share some of their life story within the context of whatever you are going through by giving you an example like, “I know what end-stage dementia looks like—this is the progression.” I think that is leading with care. Someone who can reaffirm you and it boosts you at that moment. That happens here all the time. John: I think of leading with care on a variety of levels. Primarily because caregivers start the interaction with you as a human being and not just as a patient. They are learning about you as an individual before they provide healthcare support. You relate to them as a professional and a person. I think it gets back to the culture of Doylestown Health and the incredible personal relationships.

Friends is an organization consisting of dedicated community volunteers, Doylestown Health associates and members of the medical staff committed to advancing the highest quality cardiac and vascular care to patients and their families. The late Herman Silverman founded the group in 1978 as the $100 Heart Club and partnered with distinguished physicians and community members to raise funds vital to launching a much-needed heart program at Doylestown Hospital. Since then, over $2 million has been raised for the advancement of heart and vascular care. In 2017, their volunteerism was recognized with the Hospital Award for Volunteer Excellence by the American Hospital Association. Friends of the Heart Institute pledged to take a leadership role in the upcoming renovation and expansion of heart and vascular facilities, services and programs. An ambitious $1 million fundraising goal has been set. With the support of membership contributions, donations and event participation, all monies given over the next five years will be directed to this exciting and transformational initiative.

PINE RUN RETIREMENT COMMUNITY:

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

comfort . peace . love . What more could anyone ask for when it comes to caring for aging parents? Beth Ann Hirschmann, her seven siblings and their extended family experienced all of this and more when their parents, residents at Pine Run Retirement Community, suddenly experienced dual health crises.

James and Betty Hirschmann moved to Pine Run five years ago, when both were in their mid-70s and in good health. Pine Run was James’ preferred choice, because his doctors were part of the Doylestown Health system. He wanted to remain with his physicians and have access to the medical capabilities of Doylestown Hospital. That turned out to be a very wise decision. Changing Needs In April 2016, Betty fell and broke her hip. She underwent surgery at Doylestown Hospital, followed by a stay in the Pine Run Rehabilitation Center. While her mom was recuperating, Beth stayed with dad at his condo and quickly realized he needed support with everyday tasks. With help from Pine Run Senior Director of Villager Services, Maria Santangelo, and social worker, Nancy Pellegrini, the family made the decision to move James to the Pine Run Health Center. “It was a hard conversation to have with dad,” said Beth. “But Maria and Nancy exhibited so much grace in helping him adjust. They also understood how hard this was for our family and extended extra care and support to us as well.” Unfortunately, Betty’s crisis soon became worse. Shortly after her hip was healed, Betty was diagnosed with cancer. She began a two-month journey of tests, procedures, changing symptoms, emergency care, hospitalization, and ultimately hospice as her condition worsened. The Hirschmann family

began a journey of their own as they navigated a myriad of concerns related to both parents. A Network of Care “At every turn, someone was always there caring for my mom, my dad and our family,” Beth recalled. “The interconnectivity of care we experienced at Doylestown Health and Pine Run was incredible. It was as if there was an invisible safety net of care around us all the time. Help would appear before we even knew enough to ask for it.” Beth notes that it was the respect and love displayed for each of her parents that impressed her the most. “The doctors, nurses and staff sacrificed for them, putting in long hours and going above and beyond to help them and to ease our concerns,” she said. Betty Hirschmann lost her battle with cancer in June, 2016. James Hirschmann has since moved back into independent living with the aid of companion services. The family recalls their two-month crisis as a time that showed them what it means to have a village of support. With the hope that others can experience the same love and care, the Hirschmann family has generously invested in the mission of Pine Run with annual contributions of support. “We all want the best for our parents,” said Beth. “Pine Run provides that in every way.”

A GIFT THAT PAYS DIVIDENDS john conway is adept at evaluating a winning enterprise . After a personal introduction to Doylestown Health and the Richard A. Reif Heart Institute through Joseph Auteri, MD, Medical Director, Reif Heart Institute and Chief of Cardiac Surgery, he was inspired to make a leadership gift to support the new Center for Heart and Vascular Care and now serves as a member of the newly created Doylestown Health Foundation Ambassadors Circle. “The fact that someone as distinguished as John chose to join this group of similarly impressive stakeholders in our community is another vote of confidence in our clinical expertise in heart care and across Doylestown Health,” notes Dr. Auteri.

R

etired since 2015, following 15 years as the Chairman and CEO of Crown Holdings, Inc., John now serves as the company’s Chairman of the Board. Founded in 1892 by the inventor of the bottle cap, Crown is now one of the largest packaging companies in the world, and ranks as the #2 producer of beverage cans globally, in addition to other leading package lines. According to John, “I used to say if you want to kill a conversation at a cocktail party, tell people you make cans for a living.” Through his career at Crown, John has a unique appreciation for the complexities of delivering highquality healthcare. “Similar to healthcare, the business of manufacturing is exceedingly complex. The regulatory requirements, distribution, quality control, customer satisfaction, and health and safety are all intertwined and not something you notice unless you really focus on what’s behind the scenes. Delivering a superior product or service consistently is very challenging,” John says. Over the course of several meetings at the hospital and by conducting the due diligence process characteristic of any CEO investor, John’s favorable impressions of Doylestown Health were confirmed. “I had also heard great things about Doylestown Hospital from my wife Helen, who had excellent outcomes, and also from physician friends and others in the community who know the hospital well,” he continued. “Doylestown Hospital serves such an important function for this part of Pennsylvania and Bucks County. I thought it would be a good thing to help.” Throughout his research John also noted the unique history of Doylestown Health and its position as an independent health system, which he considers to be a benefit to the patients and families it serves. “This area is growing and people need access to a first-rate hospital. The alternative of

traveling to Philadelphia is difficult for a lot of people. It’s far better if we can come here and get quality care,” he notes. Looking ahead, John hopes his gift will “contribute to maintaining the level of excellence Doylestown Health has already achieved. This community is well-served to have Doylestown Health and we are fortunate that the people who have put so much time and effort into it have done such a good job. Lucky us.”

DESIGNING HEALTHY

COMMUNITIES

since the beginning , the women leaders of the

Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) have personified caring leadership by designing innovative ways to meet the changing healthcare needs of the Doylestown community. To appreciate the Doylestown Health of today, one only needs to know of its origins to fully grasp just how remarkable it truly is. An Auspicious Beginning In 1895, an era of modernization ushered in new ways for the residents of Doylestown to connect and communicate with the outside world. Access to expanded rail travel, electricity and the eagerly anticipated telephone meant that Doylestonians were keeping pace with their contemporaries in many ways. At the same time, challenges with sanitation and water quality provided a stark contrast to the progress being made. Dust from unpaved streets became unbearable as summer approached—traffic kicked up dust clouds which choked and burned the eyes of passersby. Local resident, Mrs. Isabella Watson, dismayed by this situation, decided to take action. Throughout history, great innovators have begun with just that, a difficult challenge or problem requiring bold thinking to address it. Mrs. Watson and a group of 13 like-minded women she assembled were equally ambitious. Keen to make improvements that would benefit their entire community, they established the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown “to promote the health and beauty of the town.” Along with addressing the health concerns brought on by dusty roads, the 14 founders began a tradition of innovation, philanthropy and service to community that stands today as a testament to their extraordinary vision for improving the health of the residents of Doylestown.

DESIGNING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES continued Making Things Happen In its 120 years, the VIA has built a reputation for “making things happen,” notes Joan Parlee, VIA member and Chairman of the Doylestown Hospital and Doylestown Health Foundation Boards of Directors. “The original women who established the VIA saw a need and addressed it and we’ve kept that up,” she continued. “They were really ahead of their time and I think they’d be glad the current VIA continues to change with the times.” In 1923, the visionary women of the VIA established Doylestown Hospital to proactively meet the need for emergency and acute care right in the community. In the early days, the fearless women of the VIA assumed every responsibility for running the hospital. Their involvement “created a sense of community, gratitude and partnership that characterizes the culture of Doylestown Health today,” according to Cory H. Schroeder, current VIA President. “They were trailblazers,” she continued. Just as they are today, the women of the VIA were passionate about their quest to bring the very best healthcare services to Doylestown and provide the leadership and financial resources to sustain it. “The women of the VIA thought, if we can provide healthcare services safely and with high-quality here in Doylestown, then people won’t have to leave our community,” says Joyce Hanson, VIA President-elect and breast cancer survivor. “I’m grateful for that because when I was diagnosed with cancer, it was such a relief to go to Doylestown Hospital for treatments. I had access to the same protocols and therapies offered in larger centers but without the stress of having to travel into the city. The Doylestown nurses and doctors were incredible, they cared about me and supported me in navigating the process.” Designing Women Early on, members of the VIA established a tradition of fundraising to support the ongoing operations of Doylestown Hospital. The

members of the VIA apply the same passion and purpose to their largest annual fundraiser, the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens. Since 1971, this event is a highlight of the spring season in Bucks County, showcasing some of the finest examples of historic and residential architecture, including emblematic stone farmhouses. “Our goal is to select homes that are unique to Bucks County and have a long history—like the VIA!” notes Georgia Ford, VIA member and former Designer House Chair. “We start planning a year in advance for the next house,” says Ford. “It takes our entire membership of 300-plus and additional community volunteers to staff all of the planning subcommittees and run the house for the month. It’s a huge, yet rewarding, undertaking to chair the Designer House,” she continued. “We have incredible support from everyone involved from our designers to our volunteers. It allows us to grow our support for the hospital in a really meaningful way.” Net proceeds from the month-long fundraiser are primarily designated to support the mission of Doylestown Health and fund other causes such as scholarships, direct family assistance, postsecondary education for women, and community-interest groups in need of financial and other types of assistance.

Expanding Impact The impact of the VIA’s philanthropy can be felt in all corners of Doylestown Hospital. Over the past 40 years, the Designer House proceeds have allowed the VIA to invest in Doylestown Health’s highest priority capital projects and programs. To date, the VIA has contributed more than $3.5 million, a notable achievement for an exclusively all volunteer-led organization. VIA funds were instrumental in opening Doylestown Health’s new Emergency Department in 2010. The VIA made an unprecedented $1 million pledge in 2011 of Designer House proceeds that launched the renovation and expansion of labor, delivery and postpartum facilities at Doylestown Hospital to meet growing demand from the community. Renamed the VIA Maternity Center in 2013, patients seek to celebrate one of life’s most important milestones in this facility that seamlessly blends clinical excellence with a nurturing and healing environment and also honors the VIA’s longstanding commitment to women and families. Proceeds from the 2017 Designer House will fund equipment needs for the new Endovascular Surgery Suite, an essential component of Doylestown Health’s innovative plans for the future. According to Jim Brexler, President and CEO of Doylestown Health, “the VIA’s founding vision carries on in everything we do. They work selflessly to continually improve and support what we’re doing at Doylestown Health. The impact of the VIA is just too great to measure. We owe them a deep debt of gratitude for all they have done and continue to do for us.” When asked to reflect on all that the VIA has accomplished, current President Cory Schroeder’s response is infused with the same boundless optimism and future thinking of the founders. “It takes my breath away to think of all that we’ve done. It makes me so very proud of the VIA and Doylestown Hospital. I can’t wait to do more and like always, there’s so much more to be done.”


All contributions to Doylestown Health have a significant impact on our ability to deliver the highest quality of healthcare to those in need. Philanthropic support is used to enhance patient care, launch new programs and services, train and honor our medical staff and volunteers, and bring Doylestown Health’s mission of health and wellness out into the community.

golfer, Steve Novello appreciates just how much this term applies to his own life.

S

hortly after moving to Doylestown four years ago with his wife and younger daughter, Steve experienced severe chest pain. Attributing it to the stress of the move and the less than ideal eating he had done lately, nonetheless his wife took him straight to the Emergency Department at Doylestown Hospital. “Thank God she got me there, because it was the dumbest thing you could possibly do, not going in an ambulance when you’re having a heart attack,” says Steve. The next four days were a blur but Steve noted that, “everyone here cared about me, cared about my wife, cared about my daughter. I’ve never experienced that at a hospital, ever.” As he recovered, Steve developed a rapport with Steven Guidera, MD, Interventional Cardiologist and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab. They share an affinity for golf and play together occasionally. The next close call came for Steve two years ago on New Year’s Eve. “I was feeling severely ill and we rushed to Doylestown Hospital,” Steve shares. “It turned out that I actually tore my esophagus that night!” Joseph Minissale, DO was the gastroenterology specialist on-call when Steve came in. According to Dr. Minissale, “Steve’s situation was life-threatening. The location and severity of the tear, in addition to the blood thinners he was on, made it tough to stop the bleeding. With my colleagues in the Heart Institute who knew Steve’s history and our outstanding care teams, we could act without hesitation to address his condition.” According to Steve, “I knew I was in good hands again.”
