Grand View Launches Biggest Capital Campaign
SELLERSVILLE PA – Grand View Health hopes to raise $14 million, its largest goal ever, to help cover the cost of a 190,000-square-foot hospital expansion set to open in 2023, the healthcare system announced at its annual meeting. It’s off to a good start, it added Monday (Oct. 11, 2021): the campaign has already received commitments totaling nearly $4 million.
The fund-raiser will upgrade Grand View Health’s Sellersville hospital facilities to match “high-quality programs” currently in place, it said. It’s also looking to create what it calls “the ideal patient experience;” one that “integrates exciting break-throughs in medicine with Grand View’s culture of caring.”
Its “This Is Us Together” capital campaign is targeted toward the six-story, $197 million hospital expansion project on its main campus in Bucks County. It is planned to include 10 new operating rooms, 52 private patient rooms, and a new Emergency Department with 28 treatment rooms with three trauma bays. Those bays will support its new Level II Trauma Center, accredited Sept. 1.
“With a transformational project in front of us, we are coming to you for your support,” Grand View Health Foundation Board of Trustees Chair Sandy Alderfer told those at the meeting. He noted the trauma center “demonstrates the life-saving benefits of bringing next-level healthcare to the local community.” Hundreds of area residents, he indicated, have already benefited from “another chance at life.”
