The hospital expansion project includes 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.

“This pledge from Harleysville Bank will help us strengthen Grand View Health’s level of care even further,” said Sandy Alderfer, Grand View Health Foundation Board Chair and Campaign Chair. “We are extremely grateful for their generosity as we move closer to our campaign goal to raise $14 million.”
