By Joseph Vernace, Bryn Mawr Hospital Campus Medical Staff President
Due to a recent conflict, the BMH Semi Annual Medical Staff Meeting will now be held on Thursday, May 25, at 5:30pm in the Pennypacker Auditorium. Light refreshments will be available. Elections for Medical Staff Officers and At-Large Members to the MLH Medical Executive Committee and the BMH MOC will be held at this meeting. The term of office is July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2019. The slate of candidates is provided for your review/reference.
At the May 16, 2013 BMH Semi Annual Medical Staff Meeting the physicians voted on a Resolution to support the expansion of the hospital in the construction of the new patient tower. A pledge of $100,000 was approved using monies in the Bryn Mawr Hospital Education Fund. I wish to inform you that at the May 25, 2017 Semi Annual Medical Staff Meeting the Medical Staff members will be asked to vote on a second Resolution for Campus Support to pledge an additional $50,000 towards this expansion. Consideration for this contribution has received full support from the entire membership of the Bryn Mawr Hospital MOC. There is more than sufficient monies in the Fund to support an additional pledge of this amount.
I will offer more details at the Semi Annual Meeting. I hope to see you at the May 25 Medical Staff Meeting.
