The Galen Society
The Galen Society is Virginia Hospital Center's Leadership Giving Group dedicated to advancing medical excellence through philanthropy.
The Galen Society, reestablished in 2007, has a long and prestigious history at Virginia Hospital Center. Its original members established an endowment that provides ongoing support for key medical service lines at Virginia Hospital Center. Galen Society members recognize the vital role the Hospital plays in the community, 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year.
By committing a generous gift or pledge of $10,000 or more, members play a major role in advancing the Hospital’s mission to provide state-of-the-art, comprehensive and personalized healthcare to the Northern Virginia and the Washington DC area.
Why should I become a member of The Galen Society?
Virginia Hospital Center is the only independent hospital in Northern Virginia. This means the Hospital is uniquely positioned to meet the changing needs of the community it serves. Galen Society members help to ensure that Virginia Hospital Center remains a leader in the dynamic and evolving healthcare market.
