For more than eight decades, the team at Grand View Anesthesia Associates has played a vital role in delivering safe surgical care for people in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Now, they’re taking a step forward to support the largest expansion project in Grand View Health history.

The practice has proudly pledged $100,000 to Grand View Health Foundation’s This Is Us Together campaign, supporting critical healthcare infrastructure. Thanks to their generosity, their campaign pledge will support the naming of three areas, including the Grand View Anesthesia Associates Lounge, the Grand View Anesthesia Associates Staff Lounge and the Grand View Anesthesia Associates Nurses’ Station, one of several nurses’ stations on the first floor of the new six-story, 190,000-square-foot Grand View Hospital pavilion that will open next summer.

“We’re making this pledge to strengthen the already exceptional healthcare services Grand View Health provides, and we’re proud to play a role in carrying the hospital’s tradition of excellence into a new generation,” said Marc Freeman, MD, President of Grand View Anesthesia Associates and a Grand View Health Trustee.

The practice’s pledge marks an important milestone in the This Is Us Together campaign. “We’re happy to announce that we’ve raised $7.3 million, and we’re more than halfway to our $14 million goal,” said Sandy Alderfer, Grand View Health Foundation Board Chair and Campaign Chair.

Doug Hughes, Interim President and CEO of Grand View Health, added: “Whether you’re having a baby, getting a knee replaced, or in need of trauma care, you rely on your anesthesia team to get you through your care experience safely. This generous gift from our friends at Grand View Anesthesia Associates will help provide safer surgeries and give patients peace of mind that they’re in good hands.”

When complete in summer of 2023, Grand View Hospital’s new pavilion will include 52 private patient rooms, 10 state-of-the-art operating rooms, and a new Emergency Department and rooftop helipad to support Grand View Health’s Level II Adult Trauma Center, the only level II trauma center in Upper Bucks County.
