This past Friday, Doylestown Health celebrated the opening of the new Morel Family Foundation Center for Prenatal Care with a ribbon-cutting and dedication.
Morel Prenatal Care officially opened on Monday in a new suite on the ground floor of Doylestown Hospital. The new unit is capable of serving more patients than ever before in response to rising demand for services in the region.
NAamed in recognition of the generosity of the Morel Family Foundation, the family has supported multiple areas across the health system, including underwriting the state-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanner in the Morel Family MRI Center.
Jim Brexler, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Doylestown Health, welcomed guests alongside Marianne Chabot, the Chair of the Boards of Doylestown Hospital and Doylestown Health Foundation.
Speakers at the event included Helen Hammes, the President of the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown, Patti Stover, RN, MSN, NE-BC, Vice President of Patient Services and Chief Nursing Officer; Sue Minio, MSN, RNC-OB, Director of Maternal and Child Services, and Donald Morel, Jr., PhD, on behalf of the Morel Family Foundation.
In addition, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, Sen. Steven J. Santarsiero, Rep. Shelby Labs, and Noni West, Mayor of Doylestown, attended.
“The dedication of a new center for prenatal care is an important step in our ongoing commitment to providing expert, comprehensive care through every stage of life,” said Brexler. “Doylestown Health is an integral part of the fabric of our growing community. Through maternal and child services, we are able to touch new lives at their earliest stages.”
“Driven by our patient-first philosophy when designing the new prenatal care center, and as we have done for all of our milestone achievements through One Vision, our top priority has been considering the needs and comfort of our patients—both now and in the future,” said Stover.
Morel Prenatal Care was announced as a priority of the One Vision Campaign in 2020.
Upcoming campaign priority milestones include the reconstruction of Children’s Village, the early childhood education center on the campus of Doylestown Hospital, expanding and renovating Interventional Radiology at Doylestown Hospital, the renovation of the Catheterization Laboratory including an additional Hybrid Procedural Suite, and further hospital updates to enhance patient access and comfort, and continue to offer the most advanced medicine and treatment options available.
