Governor Tom Wolf visited Bryn Mawr Hospital on Thursday for a meeting with Board Chairman Steve Aichele, Main Line Health President & CEO Jack Lynch and Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andi Gilbert. His visit also included a tour of several areas of the hospital, including the Warden Lobby and Patient Pavilion—both currently under construction as part of the campus’ modernization project—and the Level III NICU.
The tour, led by Ivan Scott, Director of Nursing Operations, was an opportunity to familiarize Governor Wolf with Main Line Health’s commitment to improving the patient experience by providing safe, high-quality health care in a modern setting.
“The tour of Bryn Mawr Hospital was an excellent opportunity to see the hospital and health system’s commitment to patient care and comfort; two very important aspects of health care that might be overlooked if not prioritized,” said Governor Wolf.
Following a tour of the Hospital facilities, Governor Wolf joined Aichele, Lynch, Gilbert and other members of the Bryn Mawr Hospital team for a discussion of Main Line Health’s commitment to eliminating disparities in care, focus on population health initiatives and efforts to achieve value-based care delivery.
“It was an honor to host Governor Wolf, and to share with him the transformative work going on at Bryn Mawr and across the System,” said Jack Lynch, President and CEO. “I want to thank our Bryn Mawr team for ensuring that Governor Wolf’s visit was a successful one, and for demonstrating why Main Line Health continues to be a destination for superior care in our community.”
