Doylestown Health Foundation receives historic gifts

Doylestown Health Foundation received an unprecedented $10 million in new gifts from philanthropists and campaign co-leaders Alex and Patricia Gorsky ($5 million) and Richard T. and Angela Clark ($5 million). Representing the largest single gifts in Doylestown Health’s history, the announcement signals a new era in philanthropic giving.

“We are deeply grateful to the Gorskys and the Clarks for their leadership and significant investments in our future,” said Jim Brexler, President and CEO, Doylestown Health. “These transformational gifts will help us realize our vision as we approach our second century of delivering healthcare.” 

Both the Gorskys and Clarks designated their commitments to Doylestown Health’s Second Century Fund, earmarked to support the priority needs of Doylestown Health’s capital projects at both the Doylestown Hospital and Pine Run Retirement Community campuses. Construction is underway on a new, state-of-the-art Heart and Vascular facility on the Hospital’s main campus, as well as Pine Run’s new Community Center - familiarly known as the “Hub.” Additional priorities of the comprehensive fundraising campaign for Doylestown Health, include: new and expanded operating suites, a new outpatient pavilion, and upgraded and enhanced amenities for patients and families.

“Four generations of our family have been cared for at Doylestown Hospital -- from the births of our grandchildren at the VIA Maternity Center to the specialized geriatric services provided to our parents at Pine Run’s Health Center,” note Dick and Angela. “Through our outstanding personal patient experiences to the expert, world-class care we have witnessed for our family and received ourselves, we are proud to give back to Doylestown Health. This hospital is a gem in our community and we want it to thrive for future generations.”
