Two years after groundbreaking and supported by nearly $60 million in donations and pledges as part of the $75 million Doylestown Health ONE VISION campaign, donors previewed the 100,000-square-foot Cardiovascular and Critical Care Pavilion on the flagship Doylestown Hospital campus.
The invitation-only event for contributors to the ONE VISION campaign on Sept. 25 offered tours of the new wing of the hospital, including:
• The three-story Gorsky Atrium, the building’s dramatic entranceway, which will feature a heart-healthy café
• The Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care, which will house the Della Penna CVICU/IVU and its 28 universal private rooms, a state-of-the-art endovascular hybrid operating suite and 20 private bays for pre-procedural care and post-procedural recovery
• The Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine, featuring 32 specialized and private intensive care/intermediate care patient rooms
• The Fred Beans Family Waiting Area, which offers flexible seating arrangements for families and visitors
• The Marshall Monumental Staircase encouraging exercise and quick access to all three floors
The second floor of the new building, housing the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care, will open early in 2020. The Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine, on the third floor, will open later in 2020.
Several hundred donors toured the facility to see how new configurations of clinical stations were designed to reduce ambient noise and promote healing. Also on the tour were private patient rooms that are large enough for loved ones to gather, and light-filled respite rooms for visitors and families.
“Doylestown Health is transforming the delivery of health care and improving the wellness of our community through the generous investments of donors and strategic planning that impacts every aspect of our nationally-recognized health system,” said Jim Brexler, President and CEO.
“With the opening of this new building, our facility will match the incredible work we are doing and the level of care that is truly unique for a hospital of our size,” said Dr. Auteri. He went on to cite a few of Doylestown Health’s national recognitions, including its listing among the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by IBM Watson Health.
The ONE VISION campaign launched publicly in June 2018 and will formally conclude in 2023 to mark the centennial of Doylestown Hospital, founded by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown.
“There are many reasons to celebrate our first 100 years,” said Brexler. “We’ve earned national and regional awards and recognitions for the increasingly complex services we provide. It’s exciting and inspiring to think what our second century holds.”
Fred Beans is thrilled to stand beside Doylestown Hospital and help them usher in the latest life-saving technology in their hometown.
