The H. Phelps Potter Society

The H. Phelps Potter Society was founded to honor  Dr. H. Phelps Potter’s vision of combining true compassion with leading-edge care. Dr. Potter’s vision became his legacy and remains a Paoli Hospital hallmark. This is what draws families to come here in their time of need. It's what attracts the very best doctors and nurses to build their careers with us. It's what earns us numerous awards and recognition for the quality of our care, year after year. It's also why H. Phelps Potter Society members choose to make Paoli Hospital a priority in their giving.

With the support of The H. Phelps Potter Society, anything is possible. With your support we can continue to invest in the latest technology, medical programs and surgical expertise. We can attract and keep truly outstanding doctors, nurses and staff members and offer them opportunities to grow and learn as professionals.
