A $1 million gift to Doylestown Health has established the Marvin and Dee Ann Woodall Endowed Chair in Cardiothoracic Surgery, the first endowed chair in the health system’s nearly 100-year history.
The Woodalls have contributed generously to a broad spectrum of programs at Doylestown Health for more than 30 years, including the Emergency Department Campaign, Friends of the Heart Institute, the Woodall Chest Pain Center, and the Nursing Scholarship Program.
Their early support of One Vision: The Campaign for Doylestown Health established the Woodall Center for Heart and Vascular Care, which centralizes all cardiovascular services at Doylestown Hospital within a single, comprehensive program.
“We are very proud to give our support to Doylestown Health and the excellent heart and vascular program that impacts so many lives,” said Marvin Woodall, who led the team responsible for pioneering the cardiovascular franchise at Johnson & Johnson in the 1990s. “We believe in the importance of high-quality care in our community, and Doylestown Health is providing care on a level of sophistication not usually seen outside of large cities.”
