In 1953 when Lankenau Medical Center moved to its current site in Lower Merion Township, the Women's Board of Lankenau was formed to coordinate the many diverse activities of Lankenau's individual auxiliaries.

Since that time, this energetic, resourceful group of people has had an impressive record of raising money in support of our medical center. A major milestone was reached in 1973 when the president of the Women's Board became an ex-officio voting member of the Lankenau Medical Center Board of Trustees. Today, the Women's Board and its auxiliaries account for many volunteers, some of whom serve directly on the Women's Board.

During the last seven decades the board and its auxiliaries have been characterized by a progressive expansion of programs and services.

The Women's Board is the governing body of Lankenau's Auxiliaries. Three members from each auxiliary plus all fundraising chairmen and standing committee chairmen make up the membership, which meets the first Thursday of each month, September to June, with the exception of December when the Christmas Fair is traditionally held.

As our region and our local communities continue to proactively institute social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Main Line Health has canceled all in person events of more than 10 people until at least January 1, 2021. Instead, we will use virtual solutions and platforms to continue our mission of engaging and connecting with our patients and community during this time. Stay connected with us on social media and through our Well Ahead newsletter for the latest MLH news, happenings and virtual events to come.
