Doylestown Hospital center renamed in honor of Clark family


With a $2.5 million gift from the family foundation of Angela and Dick Clark and their daughters, the Women’s Diagnostic Center at Doylestown Hospital will be named the Clark Center for Breast Imaging, and One Vision: The Campaign for Doylestown Health surpasses its originally stated goal of $75 million.

Angela and Dick Clark are longstanding benefactors and chairs of the One Vision Campaign. They were most recently recognized in April during the dedication of the Clark Center for Critical Care Medicine at Doylestown Hospital, another campaign priority.

This latest gift from the Clarks brings One Vision to the original campaign goal of $75 million — a goal suggested, in part, by Dick Clark himself during the campaign’s early silent phase. In January, having reached just over $70 million in gifts, Doylestown Health announced that the boards of trustees had approved the increase of the campaign goal to $100 million on the recommendation of the campaign committee, under the Clarks’ leadership and that of honorary chairs and visionary donors, Alex and Pat Gorsky. The campaign is scheduled to conclude in 2023 with the centennial of the hospital’s founding.

Plans to expand and relocate the Women’s Diagnostic Center were announced in January when Doylestown Health was awarded a $1 million grant from the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). Slated to open in spring 2022, the Clark Center for Breast Imaging will offer improved space and more room for new technologies, and help meet the rising need for breast imaging and diagnostic services for both men and women in the community in an advanced and welcoming facility.

With the increased goal, the One Vision campaign has expanded to encompass new priorities, including the rebuilding of Children’s Village on the Doylestown Hospital campus. After a tornado damaged the structure in August 2020, Children’s Village relocated to a facility nearby to resume operations.

Children’s Village has received the support of another signature gift to the campaign from Jeanne and John Hubbard of Doylestown, who have pledged a $1 million gift in addition to earlier support. The Hubbards are both members of the One Vision campaign committee.

All told, the campaign has generated an unprecedented $75.4 million in donations — achieved through more than 20,000 individual gifts from nearly 7,000 donors. More than 40 percent of campaign contributors are new donors who never made a gift to Doylestown Health before the campaign’s silent launch in 2016.
