Devon Makes Annual Donation to Bryn Mawr Hospital
On December 7, members of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair and Bryn Mawr Hospital communities gathered to celebrate another year of their unique and successful partnership. This year, the efforts of the volunteers of the 116th Devon Horse Show and Country Fair resulted in a donation of $403,000. "This donation represents thousands of man-hours and the deep commitment our volunteers have to our community and Bryn Mawr Hospital," noted Debbie Martin, 2012 Devon Country Fair Co-Chair.
The funds have been earmarked for the purchase of a Hologic stereotactic unit for breast biopsies in the Comprehensive Breast Center plus eight new and six upgraded cardio-respiratory monitors in the NICU. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Comprehensive Breast Center are areas that Devon has supported several times in recent years through equipment purchases and expansions.
Andi Gilbert, BMH president, Thomas Frazier, MD, medical director, Comprehensive Breast Center, and Glenn Kaplan, MD, MLH chief of Neonatology, all spoke at the reception. Drs. Frazier and Kaplan explained in detail how beneficial the gift from Devon will be to their patients in the Comprehensive Breast Center and the NICU. Dr. Kaplan had one of the new cardio-respiratory monitors on hand to show to the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair's Board of Directors.
Bryn Mawr Hospital has been the beneficiary of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair since 1919.
