Our region and local communities continue to proactively institute social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In light of this, all in-person Main Line Health events of more than 10 people are canceled 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.

Man O’War – An Evening at the Races gala

An evening to benefit Riddle Hospital’s Patient Pavilion and campus transformation

The Riddle HealthCare Foundation and the Associated Auxiliaries of Riddle Hospital invite you to be first out of the gate to show your support for our premier fundraising event and one of Delaware County’s most entertaining evenings… the 2020 Man O’War — An Evening at The Races at the Springfield Country Club!

This event provides extraordinary support for Riddle Hospital, with attendees dressed in festive Kentucky Derby-style, dancing, cheering on their horses, shopping the silent auction, and much more.

We hope you will join the entire Riddle Hospital family—physicians, employees, board members, volunteers, auxilians, business associates and community members—at the Springfield Country Club on Saturday, April 25, 2020, as we celebrate our 2020 Man O’War Honorees.

The Power of Partnership

This special evening celebrates the “power of partnership” established between Riddle Hospital and Main Line Health in 2007. This vital collaboration has resulted in significant major projects at Riddle including completion of Health Center 4, the emergency department expansion and renovation, opening of the wound care and pulmonary rehab centers and comprehensive renovation of The Birthplace.

Ten years in the making, Riddle and Main Line Health are now embarking upon a modernization project that will transform our campus by 2024 with a new state-of-the-art five-story Patient Pavilion, all private patient rooms, contemporary facilities and advanced technology to support the evolving needs of the community. This critical $327 million investment in Riddle and the Delaware County community reflects Main Line Health’s unwavering commitment to provide access to superior care to all those we serve.

This project will mark the most significant facility improvement in Riddle’s nearly 60-year legacy and is among the largest capital investments in Main Line Health history. This endeavor would not have been possible without the courage and vision of many who embarked upon the Riddle Hospital/Main Line Health partnership 13 years ago.

We are pleased that this year’s gala, “The Power of Partnership,” is honoring a group of five leaders who helped pave the way for Riddle.

2020 Man O’War honorees

We honor these five individuals for the guidance, expertise and philanthropic spirit that have inspired fellow trustees and senior leaders to consistently broaden and expand Main Line Health's clinical services and resources. Through their endorsement, Riddle Hospital is embarking upon a campus transformation so that we can continue to offer the highest level of patient care in our community for generations to come.
