The Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) founded Doylestown Hospital in 1923. Under the continued governance and stewardship of the VIA and throughout its 95-year history, Doylestown Hospital has responded to the healthcare needs of the greater Bucks County community. Established as an emergency and maternity hospital, Doylestown Hospital has expanded its clinical services, invested in cutting-edge technologies and developed wide-ranging health programs. Today, Doylestown Health is an award-winning, nationally-acclaimed, comprehensive regional healthcare system.
Doylestown Hospital has been named among the “Top 100 hospitals and health systems with great heart programs” by Becker’s Hospital Review (2013, 2016). Among other awards and accolades, the Richard A. Reif 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.
Major renovation and expansion of the Heart Institute is underway in an effort to continue to meet growing demand and interest in Doylestown Health’s cardio-thoracic and expanded vascular services. A groundbreaking ceremony took place last September and most recently Doylestown Hospital dedicated its new, state-of-the-art Hybrid Operating Suite, which utilizes cutting-edge technology for complex minimally-invasive endovascular and open vascular procedures.
The 2018 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.
The new Center for Heart and Vascular Care will house the prestigious Richard A. Reif Heart Institute and will provide:
- New clinical space,
- Expanded patient and family waiting areas,
- Separate pre- and post-procedural areas, and
- 30 private universal patient rooms.
The renovations are designed to accommodate enhanced patient safety and privacy, as well as amenities for family and visitor comfort.

“Doylestown Health is steadfast in its commitment to continue to serve as a beacon for health and wellness while providing the highest level of clinical care in facilities commensurate with our expertise. The reason we are as great as we are is because we refuse to believe we are as great as we can be.”
