Philanthropy and Strong Physician Leadership

Princeton HealthCare System Foundation Princeton HealthCare System Foundation

The Medical Staff of Penn Medicine Princeton Health has been a philanthropic leader for decades. Most recently, the group pledged a multiyear gift of $250,000 to the Princeton Medical Center Foundation to fund care and services provided to patients throughout the health system and to benefit employees facing times of financial hardship.

The Medical Staff’s pledge will support:

  • Princeton Health’s annual Golf Outing, whose proceeds benefit a different health system funding priority each year
  • The Bristol-Myers Squibb Community Health Center, a clinic on the Princeton Health campus that provides primary and specialty care to uninsured and underinsured individuals and families
  • The Employee Benevolent Fund, which supports Princeton Health employees during times of financial crisis
  • The Medical Staff consists of more than 1,200 active members, including 980 physicians and 300 allied health professionals. 

“The hospital and other parts of the health system have deep roots in the Princeton area that go back to the early 1900s,” said Bert Mandelbaum, MD, who also serves as Chairman of Pediatrics at Princeton Health. “Physicians have played a vital role throughout that history, and we wanted to show our ongoing commitment to the organization and the people we serve.”

Princeton Health is in its 99th year of serving our community. During all this time, the two constants of its existence have been philanthropy and strong physician leadership. This pledge perfectly reflects those values.
