"Why I Give" featuring Dr. Anne Bussard

I am so grateful to practice as an obstetrician at Paoli Hospital. It really feels like the best of both worlds—a community-oriented hospital with many of the resources found in large urban medical centers. I've seen firsthand the impact philanthropy has made on the Maternity and Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Recently, donations have supported the purchase of new bassinets and sleeper sofas, as well as continuing education opportunities for our nurses and staff. I donate to support this high-level of care for my patients and community. I've also made donations to honor the life-saving care delivered by my colleagues in the Trauma Center. To those of you who support Paoli Hospital with your own charitable giving — thank you! It's truly an honor to join you in making Paoli Hospital a philanthropic priority.
