Penn Foundation Announces Naming of the Univest Corporation of PA Community Room

Penn Foundation is pleased to announce the naming of the Univest Corporation of PA Community Room in its recently dedicated outpatient mental health outpatient facility. The new facility is named after its founding physician – a Soudertonnative – and his wife, Dr. Norman L. and Esther B. Loux.

“Penn Foundation and Univest have been partners since Penn Foundation’s founding 58 years ago, so it is fitting that our Community Room is named in honor of an institution that continually gives back to this community,” says Wayne Mugrauer, President and CEO of Penn Foundation. “We have long shared the common core values of tradition, integrity, excellence, community, and spirituality, and we are very grateful to Univest for its generous and continued support of our work.”

The new outpatient facility enables Penn Foundation to more effectively and efficiently meet the needs of this community by centralizing services, expanding programs, and increasing access to care.

“We are proud to have had leaders of Univest involved in Penn Foundation since its inception and are committed to being a significant part of Penn Foundation’s community support in the future,” says William S. Aichele, Chairman and CEO of Univest Corporation of PA. “When people in our community are faced with mental health or substance use challenges, Penn Foundation is there for them; and because it is there, there is hope. This new facility truly exemplifies the Penn Foundation mission and such an incredible space makes individuals coming for treatment feel welcome, comfortable, and respected.”
