100 Years of Service

We are proud of the rich contributions the AHF Women’s Board has brought to the community throughout its more than 100-year history. The Women’s Board as we know it was formed in 1913. Our first fundraising event generated the seed money to purchase linens and necessary equipment for a new hospital, which opened its doors in 1914. Since that time, our mission has not wavered. We continue to provide funds for specialized equipment, healthcare education, physical building campaigns, and hospital programs of Jefferson Health – Abington.
