Thanks to a $2.5 million gift from the family foundation of Angela and Dick Clark and their daughters,
the accredited Women’s Diagnostic Center at Doylestown Hospital will be named the
Clark Center for Breast Imaging
upon its relocation to a modernized, expanded suite next year.
With this milestone gift,
ONE VISION: The Campaign for Doylestown Health
has now surpassed its originally stated goal of $75 million
—a goal suggested, in part, by Dick Clark himself during the campaign’s early silent phase in 2016. This past
January, having raised more than $70 million in commitments, the Boards of Trustees approved the increase of the campaign goal
to $100 million on the recommendation of the campaign committee.
Angela and Dick Clark have served as chairs of the One Vision Campaign—alongside honorary chairs Alex and Pat
Gorsky—since its inception. They are longstanding benefactors of Doylestown Health, with notable recognition including the
Clark Center for
Critical Care Medicine and the
Clark Outpatient Rehabilitation Center
. Thanks to their inspirational leadership and guidance, along with the support of the Village Improvement Association of
Doylestown, the campaign has surpassed its original goal two years ahead of schedule.
The expansion and relocation of the Women’s Diagnostic Center was announced as a campaign priority in January in answer to
the growing need for innovation in breast cancer diagnostics and increased demand on the Center’s current services, which are
critical to the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
Currently, the Women’s Diagnostic Center at Doylestown Hospital serves more than 17,000 people throughout the region every
year. Now as a priority of the One Vision Campaign, philanthropy will support targeted investments in imaging technology and
expanded facilities, allowing Clark Breast Imaging to serve an additional 2,500 patients per year.
Relocating to a larger suite just off the ground-floor Art Walk and close to the parking garage at Doylestown Hospital—and
with philanthropic investments from our community—the Clark Center for Breast Imaging will feature:
- 5,000 square feet of new construction
- Additional dedicated imaging space including three mammography rooms, three ultrasound rooms and one stereotactic
- A new configuration for registration, patient waiting, private dressing rooms and other clinical function areas that will
dramatically reduce wait times and improve the patient experience
- New dedicated space for staff offices, workrooms, breakrooms and restrooms
- Additional equipment featuring the latest innovations in screening and diagnostic imaging specific to breast health
- Additional space to accommodate patients efficiently and comfortably
- Comfortable furnishings and amenities to create a warm, welcoming and healing environment for patients and loved ones
