Gwynedd Mercy University’s Adult Health Center was recently awarded a $15,000 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation— the giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®—during a special check presentation ceremony on Friday, Nov. 22. This generous grant from TD Charitable Foundation will support the ongoing effort to provide affordable healthcare for underinsured patients of the Delaware Valley.
During the special ceremony at the Adult Health Center in Lansdale, Pa., TD Bank’s Regional Vice President, Geoff Brandon formally awarded the grant to Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions Dean Andrea Hollingsworth, PhD, RN. Also in attendance were Gwynedd Mercy University’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Frank Scully, PhD; Adult Health Center Director Denise Vanacore, PhD; TD Bank’s Vice President for Commercial Lending David Crews; and TD Bank’s Assistant Vice President/Montgomeryville Store Manager Jon Worthington.
“The Center provides high quality care to patients struggling to make ends meet,” said Dr. Hollingsworth. “We have great respect for TD Charitable Foundation's commitment to the community which aligns with our meaningful work.”
Since 2000, The Adult Health Center has provided a full range of services for families, adults and adolescents (ages 18 and up) who do not have health insurance or outpatient coverage. The Center operates 40 hours per week and is staffed by five nurse practitioners, one registered nurse and one licensed practical nurse. Without the services of the Center, many patients would not receive the necessary care and treatment they need.
