Employees donate over $75,000 to Paoli Hospital

More than 300 Main Line Health employees supported Paoli Hospital this year with a charitable donation to the Employee Giving Campaign. This fundraising campaign gives employees the option to make a recurring gift to the hospital through payroll deduction, or make an outright, one-time gift. Thank you to everyone who joined their colleagues in supporting this annual drive to raise money to support the hospital. Your generosity directly benefits our patients, with 100 percent of your donation going toward the fund of your choice.

Gifts at work: Stop the Bleed Program

The Paoli Hospital Foundation has supported Paoli Hospital’s participation in Stop the Bleed, which is a training program that aims to empower bystanders to possibly save a life by preventing a person from bleeding to death. The program is a partnership between the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation and several Pennsylvania trauma centers.
The Stop the Bleed campaign aims to prevent death from uncontrolled bleeding by:

  • Training the public, vulnerable populations (e.g., personnel at schools, public venues), and non-medical bystanders on how to stop a person from bleeding when injury occurs.
  • Training law enforcement officers to apply bleeding control techniques on themselves, injured civilians, and fellow officers.
  • Strategically placing hemorrhage control kits with tourniquets, gauze, and hemostatic agents in every school and with every law enforcement officer in Pennsylvania.
