On October 30, 2013, 200 community leaders, trustees, donors, employees,
physicians and friends of Lankenau Medical Center gathered together at
the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia for A Visionary Celebration. The
event was aptly named as it was a celebration of the visionary
achievements of Lankenau’s Master Facility Project; a moment to
recognize the generosity of those who have given their personal treasure
to help these achievements come to fruition; and an opportunity for
Lankenau President Phil Robinson to share his vision for the new
Lankenau - all while being surrounded by visionary and masterful works
The dinner at the Barnes marked a pivotal moment in Lankenau’s history.
With the opening of the Heart Pavilion, the Master Facility Project
(MFP) at Lankenau begins to wind down. What began several years ago as a
campaign to support a capital project has grown into a fundraising drive
that has ushered in a total renaissance for Lankenau. The MFP’s many
elements went beyond bricks and mortar to include kick-starting new
research initiatives and establishing educational programmatic support
for years to come.
Now, in Phase II and with new and enhanced facilities and infrastructure
in place, our focus is shifting to the services, themselves, which we
offer – our “Centers of Excellence,” and the consideration of the
entirety of the “patient and family experience” – including the
physical, spiritual, emotional and social elements.
With great pride, Lankenau Trustee and Chair of the Chairman’s Campaign
Council Peter H. Havens announced that, at the conclusion of Phase I,
the campaign had generated close to $22 million in cash and pledges.
This remarkable achievement surpassed any campaign total in Main Line
Health and Lankenau history. It included nine gift units of $1 million
or more and almost $5 million in commitments from the Lankenau Medical
Center Foundation Board.
