Trauma Team at Paoli Hospital

Share

In September 2015, Penn State students were driving back to State College after a trip to solicit donations for THON, the annual cancer benefit. Their car crashed in King of Prussia, claiming the life of one student and injuring six others. They were transported to Paoli Hospital. 

In the following days, patients and their family members received support in-person and online from Penn State students and alumni. Paoli Hospital welcomed community members who came to show their support, offering them room to gather, snacks, and beverages. In a letter to Paoli Hospital president Jim Paradis, a Penn State parent offered his thanks: “Your staff did an exceptional job in a very difficult time for these students. I was very impressed by the level of professionalism and care exhibited on such short notice. Your staff went well above and beyond.”
