Abington – Lansdale Hospital’s New Café and Gift Shop Provides Excellent Experience for Patients and Visitors
Lansdale, PA (June 12, 2017) – As a 2017 recipient of the Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award, Abington Lansdale Hospital – Jefferson Health is continuing to place patients, their families and visitors first with the highest quality care and an excellent patient experience.
A new café and gift shop has opened at the hospital, serving local products including fresh baked goods and an assortment of sandwiches, fresh fruits and healthy snacks.
“The café provides a bright and comfortable area for families, visitors and employees to sit and enjoy a slice of tomato pie, yogurt or sandwich in a relaxing environment,” said Katie Farrell, the hospital’s chief operating officer. “We are also especially grateful for the service of our many local volunteers who staff the café.”
“With the recent gift shop expansion, we have welcomed several local companies to our gift shop, including Moyer Specialty Foods in Souderton, Bonnie’s Flowers in Chalfont, Payton Jewelry in Doylestown and The Hearth Baker in Lansdale,” added Farrell. “Bringing members of our community together to provide the best of what we all have to offer provides a strong foundation for the community as a whole to grow. The Abington – Lansdale Hospital gift shop provides unique gifts, as well as a comfortable and inviting environment to enjoy while attending to loved ones’ needs or while utilizing services such as radiology, lab services, or visiting the on-site physician offices.”
The gift shop, staffed by volunteers, is open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m.to 4 p.m.
