Lankenau Medical Center is bringing to life the concept of nurturing through nature. A division of Main Line Hospitals, Inc., this forward-thinking hospital is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top five hospitals in the Philadelphia area and one of the top 10 hospitals in Pennsylvania. Lankenau is also one of an elite few hospitals nationwide that plant and maintain a year-round garden on site. Its holistic approach to wellness sets it apart from most medical facilities, and serves the local community through education and organic produce.
The $50,000 Sun Club donation to Lankenau will fund multiple sustainability initiatives in its Delema G. Deaver Wellness Garden. Planned projects include solar-powered vermicomposting (that’s fancy talk for composting with worms), rain barrels, irrigation timers, solar LED lighting and a solar-powered greenhouse.
