West Chester Evening Branch of the Women's Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital
in Support of Neighborhood Health
For more than 120 years Chester County Hospital has provided the highest quality healthcare in a compassionate, caring atmosphere. Chester County Hospital continues to grow, but the focus is still on serving our community with that same quality, compassion and caring it was founded on.
For 101 years, the nonprofit Neighborhood Hospice, a branch of Chester County Hospital's Neighborhood Health (NH), has been providing the same quality compassionate care to thousands of residents in Chester County and surrounding communities. The demand for these services has increased dramatically, but NH has not held back, they continue to provide these services regardless of a patient's ability to pay.
Neighborhood Health can't do this vital work alone! The Women's Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital, an organization with 120 years of service to our community, is turning to you for help. By working together we can support the efforts of the team of healthcare professionals at Neighborhood Hospice to successfully meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of both patients and families in our area.
For a minimum contribution of $35.00 to the "Remembering Our Angels" fundraiser, one beautiful angel will be personalized with the name of a special person you would like to remember. Additional angels may be purchased at the same $35.00 rate. Personalized angels will adorn one of two trees displayed in the Family Lounge of Neighborhood Hospice Inpatient Unit at 400 E. Marshall Street, West Chester. Each $35.00 gift memorializes one special person. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
All proceeds from "Remembering Our Angels" will support Neighborhood Health's Hospice Services.
You are cordially invited to begin a tradition...To remember someone special...To share in the season of giving within a family community...As we celebrate the lighting of the Angel Tree.
The Angel Tree Lighting will be held on December 8, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP on the enclosed response card by December
5th if you plan to attend. We will continue to place Angels on the tree throughout the holiday season.

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS
"My Mom was in the later stages of Alzheimer's and was moving in and out of the hospital. On the advice of Neighborhood Health and Mom's doctor, we placed Mom in hospice. I can't say enough about the care that was given to Mom, but more importantly, the care that was shown to our entire family -- especially to my Dad, who was with mom every day as her health declined. From the nurses, to the social workers, to the pastor -- all the people we came into contact were so caring and understanding during this difficult time. Mom's head nurse had such depth of experience that she was able to intuit when Mom was in her last days, which gave us the time to contact family members so they could see Mom for the last time. Without a doubt, the people who work for Neighborhood Health's hospice program are angels. They made a difficult journey more manageable. -Rick Stevenson
