Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia by Philadelphia Foundation in partnership with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia initiative, modeled after Points of Light’s national program, provides a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies use their time, skills and resources to drive social impact in their company and communities.
The recognition is for organizations taking their civic responsibility seriously and for the role they play in helping to shape their communities. “We’re honored to receive this distinction for our continuing efforts to connect our business values to the needs of our community,” says Dixie James, President and Chief Operating Officer of Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
