On Monday, October 9, 2023, Doylestown Health marked a momentous milestone – celebrating our 100th Anniversary – A Century of Care. From Doylestown Emergency Hospital’s opening at the intersection of Pine and Oakland Streets in 1923, our national profile has grown to reflect our award-winning, comprehensive healthcare system, Doylestown Health, with its flagship – Doylestown Hospital. 

Doylestown Hospital was founded by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA), a group of determined women who sought to improve the health of their families, their neighbors, and the wider community. To this day, the VIA continues to lend steadfast leadership through governance and philanthropic investments in every facet of the hospital and health system. 

Over the past 100 years, Doylestown Health has invested in new technologies and treatment options, expanded the breadth of services, and positioned ourselves as a regional provider of high-quality, patient-focused care, close to home. 

With the support and leadership of our Boards of Trustees, Doylestown Health has maintained focus on our mission: to continuously improve the quality of life and proactively advocate for the health and well-being of the individuals we serve. The recent pandemic reinforced this role, as we committed ourselves to leading the way in providing innovative therapies and critical care – efforts that were recognized and rewarded by our grateful community. 

Today, Doylestown Health walks confidently into our next century of care, as we grow our campus, enthusiastically pursue innovation, and form strategic partnerships that empower us to continue to fulfill our Founder’s promise to this community and beyond. 

We thank everyone who has been a part of our proud history, and we welcome all those who join us on our journey toward an exciting future.
