Plymouth Meeting philanthropist Steven H. Korman has gifted $2 million to Thomas Jefferson University for the creation of the Steven H. Korman Center for Community Engagement, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The center will develop programs to advance the way in which community members engage with healthcare providers and vice versa. It will be housed in Jefferson’s Institute of Emerging Health Professions.

Dr. Charles V. Pollack Jr., Director of Jefferson’s Institute of Emerging Health Professions, said that the Korman Center will help educate new caregivers by developing programs such as the Community Health Worker Certificate.

Korman, the founding partner of Plymouth Meeting-based real estate company Korman Communities, has contributed nearly $3 million to the Philadelphia institution over the past two decades.

Dr. Stephen K. Klasko, President and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, praised Korman for his unwavering commitment.

“This forward-thinking philanthropic investment will help us move healthcare delivery from the hospital to where it is needed most — the community,” he said.
