Hahnemann University Hospital CEO Michael P. Halter, FACHE, was presented with Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation's Achievement Award at the organization's annual Chinese New Year Banquet held on February 23.
PCDC Executive Director John W. Chin explained that Halter and Hahnemann University Hospital have been long-time proponents of the non-profit organization’s work to enhance Chinatown. Chin noted Halter and Hahnemann’s ongoing support of PCDC — including backing of the Eastern Tower Community Center construction project, development of the 10th Street Plaza green space over I-676 (Vine Street Expressway), and creation of a primary care office on Arch Street — for its decision to honor Halter.
“The impact of Michael Halter's leadership can be felt. Hahnemann University Hospital has invested in PCDC's economic development work focused on improving the business environment. Hahnemann’s approach to healthcare delivery has been data driven and culturally and language appropriate,” Chin added.
“I’m deeply grateful to receive this award from PCDC that recognizes our commitment and dedication to the Chinatown community,” Halter said. “We are proud to assist PCDC’s mission and pleased to see how our support has helped the community flourish.”
PCDC is a grassroots, non-profit, community-based organization. Its mission is to preserve, protect, and promote Chinatown as a viable ethnic, residential, and business community.
