Doylestown Health is proud to be a destination hospital for the highest level of clinical care and the most advanced procedures in the region.
Throughout its 94-year history, under the governance and stewardship of founders, The Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA), Doylestown Hospital has responded to the healthcare needs of the greater Bucks County community. Starting as an emergency and maternity hospital in the 1920s, over the years Doylestown Hospital has expanded its clinical services, invested in cutting-edge technologies and developed wide-ranging health programs. Today, Doylestown Health is a nationally-acclaimed, comprehensive regional healthcare system.
In fact, Doylestown Health’s Richard A. Reif Heart Institute was recently named among the top “100 hospitals and health systems with great heart programs” by Becker’s Hospital Review in its 2016 edition of the list. Among other awards and accolades, the Heart Institute is a nationally-recognized cardiac program with capabilities ranging from patient education and preventive heart health programs to technically-advanced minimally-invasive valve replacements and delicate open-heart surgeries to a robust cardiac rehabilitation program.
In an effort to continue to meet growing demand and interest in Doylestown Health’s cardio-thoracic and expanded vascular services, a major renovation and expansion of the Heart Institute is underway. With plans to expand the existing footprint of the Heart Institute three-fold, construction will make room for:
- New clinical space
- Expanded patient and family waiting areas,
- Separate pre- and post-procedural areas, and
- 28 private universal patient rooms
The renovations will be also designed to accommodate enhanced patient safety and patient privacy and will include a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room which will combine advanced imaging technology, including digital subtraction angiography and on-table cross-sectional CT imaging, with cutting edge open vascular and endovascular surgery. This technology acts as an extension of the patient care team, guiding each task and enhancing the delivery of minimally-invasive techniques for improved patient care.
The 2017 Designer House will help fund capital and equipment needs for the new Endovascular Surgery Suite and build necessary facilities commensurate with the high level of care provided by Doylestown Health physicians and nurses to stay at the forefront of healthcare delivery.
“From patient education and preventive heart health programs to technically-advanced minimally-invasive valve replacements and delicate open-heart surgeries to a robust cardiac rehabilitation program. Doylestown Health is steadfast in its commitment to continue to serve as a beacon for health and wellness in this community while providing the highest level of clinical care in facilities commensurate with our expertise.”
