Your philanthropy has an impact!

In times of financial stress, philanthropy can make all the difference for a non-profit like Bryn Mawr Hospital. Support from donors like you provides BMH with the ability to make capital improvements and purchases that advance patient care even in the midst of record inflation, hospital closures, labor challenges and other unexpected disruptions. Please accept our deepest thanks for your ongoing support, which has made the following purchases and projects possible this year.

  • Infants receiving care in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and younger children receiving care in the Pediatric Unit, require specially customized beds and equipment depending on their age, size, acuity and developmental progress. With increased volumes, and our new partnership with CHOP expanding our reach, we are adding to and updating our beds to ensure the right bed is available at any given time for our neonatal/pediatric patients.
  • Construction of our new and expanded Interventional Labs for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, arrhythmias and stroke.
  • The Mozart® system which provides accurate breast tissue imaging in the Operating Room to ensure that breast surgeons localize breast tumors and have clear margins during lumpectomy and mastectomy procedures, reducing the likelihood of the need for repeat surgery.
  • Specialized Labor and Delivery stretchers which are used for transporting laboring mothers to the unit and into the C-Section suite. These stretchers are customized to the unique patient and staff needs of this increasingly busy department.

Hospital Update with BMH President, John T. Schwarz

On March 16, 2023, Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation presented “What You Need to Know from Bryn Mawr Hospital” – a virtual update with BMH President, John T. Schwarz. Mr. Schwarz shared how the hospital is addressing rising patient volumes, workforce challenges, inflation and other disruptions. The event was a chance for donors and friends of the Hospital to hear first-hand from our president and ask questions on a variety of topics. Guests heard about the changes in healthcare delivery in our region and the challenges hospitals are facing in the current healthcare climate. Those who participated found the session informative, interesting and enlightening, which is why we are sharing the recording in the hopes you do as well.
