Mary Prater, nurse, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital

“One of the many reasons that I chose Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital for a career was Art Ability. My longstanding passion for art drew me to this unique program and I was eager to support Art Ability in more than just my work. I give to the Employee Giving Campaign in support of Art Ability to guarantee funding to grow the program and to help gain recognition for these talented artists.”
Linda Ridpath, marketing and communications coordinator, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital

“I target my Employee Giving contribution to the Cruisin’ Smart® program because of the significant impact this program makes on the young, new drivers that are just starting their driving careers. By demonstrating real world changes that can result from distracted or impaired driving, the audience can see how decisions can change someone’s life forever. This message aligns perfectly with Main Line Health’s safety initiatives and the Driver Rehab program’s efforts to foster safe driving, so giving to this program is a perfect match!”
Tom Kalina, advanced clinical specialist, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital

“It is amazing how sometimes a little help is all that is needed to make a big difference. Through the Patient Therapy Scholarship Fund, we are able to give a little help to a lot of people. I look forward to being able to support this fund every year.”
Barb Merges, lead clinical nurse educator, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital

“The Employee Giving Campaign allows me to share a little bit of the blessing that I’ve been given while a member of the Bryn Mawr Rehab community. I chose Project SEARCH because it provides people the tools to become productive members of the workforce. It’s so amazing to see these individuals take pride in mastering the skills they have been taught. I’m glad I can play even a small part in their accomplishments.”
Bill Mitchell, maintenance, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital

“It has been an incredible journey working for Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice these past nine and a half years. Just the spirit of the folks that work for the agency is amazing. There are so many giving hearts and supporters! The love and dedication our clinicians have for our patients, even when severe weather arises, reflects their commitment to patient care! I have heard how the Patient Assistance Fund helps patients with various needs, and I want to be part of that support. What more can I say? I give to support our organization because of our wonderful, dedicated staff. I know that participating in the Employee Giving Campaign demonstrates my commitment to Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice.”

“The Employee Giving Campaign inspires me to show my commitment to Main Line Health HomeCare & Hospice. It gives me a sense of pride and ownership when I hear about all the amazing work that our clinical staff does every single day. On a personal level, my father received HomeCare services several times, and each time was a wonderful experience with a positive outcome. Please join me and donate to this year’s Employee Giving Campaign!”
Joan Corrado, HIM supervisor, HomeCare & Hospice
Employee giving donor since 2011

“I donate to the Employee Giving Campaign because I have witnessed the HomeCare & Hospice nurses and therapists giving rock star care. I received home care personally after ankle surgery and with the help of my nurses, physical therapist and occupational therapist, I was able to return to work 10 days after surgery. I was unable to bear weight on my left ankle for two months but my team taught me how to climb steps and maneuver to and from work with all kinds of fun devices. My personal experience also includes my grandmother receiving services through Main Line Health. She was so fond of her team, she cried when she was discharged because she would miss them. While my grandmother passed away, her wish was to donate to HomeCare & Hospice as she was so grateful for her care and the relationships she formed.”
Jody Scheibe, central support and CURE manager, HomeCare & Hospice

“An elderly client with a recent hip replacement lived alone and had little support. The inner springs of his ancient mattress had broken through, causing him considerable pain. He could not afford to replace it. The HomeCare & Hospice Foundation’s Patient Assistance Fund came to his rescue and purchased a new mattress for him. He was extremely grateful and much more comfortable. Please join me and donate to the Employee Giving Campaign! Your donations truly make a difference!”
Martha Bliss, social worker, HomeCare & Hospice

“I am fortunate to have worked at Paoli Hospital since 2006. I support the Employee Giving Campaign for a couple of reasons. One, I like that the funds stay here to help Paoli Hospital. I also like supporting the campaign because the money raised helps with continuing education for me and my co-workers so we can do a better job of caring for our patients, and that feels great!”
Theresa Clark, radiation therapist, Paoli Hospital Cancer Center
Employee giving donor since 2008

“My life has been enriched by the generosity of others, since I was a young girl and into my adulthood. Because of my experiences with receiving compassion, loving-kindness and abundant provision by people and agencies who give, I have learned the value and joy of ‘pay it forward’ through charitable contributions. I am honored and humbled by choosing to donate to the Mirmont Patient Scholarship Fund.”
Peg Costello, clinical director, Mirmont Treatment Center

“For me giving back to Lankenau Medical Center is much like giving to family. As my employer as well employing other family members, Main Line Health has played a significant role and made it possible for my family to enjoy so many milestones. From college graduations, weddings, births and just recently retirement for my mother after 20 years at Lankenau, Main Line Health has been there. I am a proud supporter of the Employee Giving Campaign, and I hope that all of my co-workers will make a contribution to ensure continued success!”

“I have been with Bryn Mawr Hospital for 21 years and have made contributions as far as I can remember. Bryn Mawr Hospital has been very good to me as an employee and as a patient and I feel my small bi-weekly contribution is the least I can do.”
Bill Downey, infection control coordinator, SurgiCenter and emergency services, Bryn Mawr Hospital

“Paoli is more than just where I work. I grew up in Paoli and my family continues to be part of this wonderful community. I feel fulfilled and at home here. I have been very fortunate and am a strong believer in giving back, so supporting Paoli Hospital is a natural choice for me. Whatever I can do to give back, I’m happy to do it!”

“It has been my second home for over 30 years; that is why I give!!”
Arie Hallowell, nurse manager, NCICU, Bryn Mawr Hospital

“We have many choices when it comes to making a donation to a worthwhile cause. By giving back to the place I work, I can personally see the positive impact my contribution does make to the patients I treat. Employee giving has allowed our department to purchase many worthwhile products which we continue to use on a daily basis. I like knowing that I helped make that happen!”
Laurie Maddesi, outpatient physical therapy, Riddle Hospital
Employee giving donor since 2007

“Oftentimes, people who require chemical dependency treatment are unable to access services because they do not have sufficient funds or the necessary insurance. In these instances, an opportunity is made available for those of us who know the value of addiction treatment to “step up” and offer our help. It is with this in mind that I choose to donate to the Mirmont Patient Scholarship Fund. When someone is seeking the care necessary to save their lives, I feel that anything I can do to remove financial barriers is going to help them take that first step. I encourage anyone to make this their choice for employee giving!”
Joy Pettitt, marketing coordinator, Mirmont Treatment Center

“Donating or being of service should come from the goodness of your heart and should never be something you need to be forced into. The Employee Giving program makes it so easy and painless to give the question should be “why wouldn’t you give”? If you can help, lend a hand by donating funds to the Employee Giving program. Never be held back by thinking that your small donation won’t make a difference. Every little bit helps. After all, the ultimate beneficiaries are the patients—because all of this is to improve patient outcomes.”
Rick Rey, network field engineer, Lankenau Medical Center

“I contribute to Employee Giving because Paoli Hospital has accomplished a great deal since the opening of the Pavilion in 2009 and the renovation of the maternity unit and nursery in 2013, but there is so much more that needs to be done. I invite and encourage every employee at Paoli to join in and become a part of the annual Employee Giving Campaign. It's a simple and easy thing to do!”
Lou Romagnoli, III, security department, Paoli Hospital
