Doylestown's First Hospital

As part of a Bucks County law firm, we live and work in a beautiful area in the Greater Philadelphia region. One of the jewels of Doylestown, where our office is located, is the old Doylestown hospital. This building at the corner of Pine and Oakland Streets may look like a house, but served as Doylestown's first hospital until 1939 when it moved to a larger location. It was founded by the Village Improvement Association in 1923. Dr. Hayman, a friend of Henry Mercer, was one of the founding physicians who used to make house calls in a horse and buggy.
