The VIA recognized the need for public health initiatives and community healthcare services and began with employment of a Visiting Nurse in 1916. The VIA, together with local medical professionals and the Doylestown community, opened the Doylestown Emergency Hospital, an eight-bed facility, at Pine and Oakland Streets in 1923. VIA members mopped floors, cleaned rooms, made beds, and cooked meals. In 1975 the hospital moved to its present location on West State Street, where it continues to grow to meet our communities’ many growing needs.
Under the continued governance and stewardship of the VIA and throughout its nearly 100-year history, Doylestown Hospital has maintained its patient-first philosophy. Their many local, state, and national awards show they are doing exactly the right things. Doylestown Hospital and the Doylestown Health System continue to be pioneers in innovation, advancing the delivery of quality healthcare.
