On Monday, July 10, the final steel beam was placed on the frame of the 7-story Patient Pavilion being constructed on Bryn Mawr Hospital’s campus. The beam had been signed by hundreds of BMH employees, patients, and friends who wanted to be a part of this historic milestone. As is customary, the beam was painted white and was adorned with an evergreen tree, symbolizing growth and luck for the future of the project.
Andi Gilbert, President BMH, and Rick Ill, Chair, Campaign Leadership Committee, were delighted to host friends of Bryn Mawr Hospital on November 3, to thank them for their major support of the “For Every Generation” campaign and to share plans to expand the new Patient Pavilion. Two BMH Foundation Board member families provided impassioned personal testimonials for maternity and neonatal intensive care, capturing both the joy and the drama that can accompany childbirth.
“This is historic,” said Andrea Gilbert, Bryn Mawr Hospital’s president, in an interview last year. “This is the next chapter in Bryn Mawr Hospital’s long history. We waited a long time to do this. We wanted to assess what the community’s future needs will be. We spent the last decade studying all of that, and now we are ready to roll up our sleeves and make this investment.”
On December 4, 2015, The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair presented Bryn Mawr Hospital President, Andi Gilbert, with a check for $500,000. This is the largest gift that Devon has ever presented to the Hospital and the second installment towards a five-year, $2 million pledge to support the For Every Generation capital campaign and modernization project at Bryn Mawr Hospital.
Five-hospital, suburban Philadelphia-based Main Line Health has been in building mode over the past 10 years since Jack Lynch III came aboard as president and CEO. That includes a $200 million investment to upgrade its Bryn Mawr Hospital and the construction of a new $46 million population health-focused facility in Concordville, Pa.
Lynch recently spoke to Hospitals & Health Networks about the challenges of building new health care facilities in complex times.
Yesterday, Bryn Mawr Hospital (BMH) announced its Capital Campaign, supporting the largest investment and most significant facility improvement in the Hospital’s 122 year history. The $30 million For Every Generation capital campaign will support this $200 million milestone modernization project.
