Virginia Hospital Center Foundation
In 2007, Virginia Hospital Center Foundation was established to advance medical excellence through charitable giving in support of Virginia Hospital Center. Since launching, the Foundation has raised nearly $15 million to support a wide range of Hospital initiatives including a major expansion of Radiation Oncology, a significant upgrade of the Cardiac Catheterization Labs, advanced medical technology throughout the Hospital, advances in breast cancer treatment, and care for low-income and uninsured children through the Arlington Pediatric Center (as well as many other worthy programs and projects).

Donor Support Enhances Patient Care and Safety
Making patient care as safe as possible is central to Virginia Hospital Center’s mission. Through the support of donors, Virginia Hospital Center is making major investments in information technologies and system upgrades that enhance patient safety, outcomes, and efficiency. “Information technology plays an essential role in every aspect of patient care,” explained Virginia Hospital Center Sr. Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Jeffrey DiLisi, MD. “And the speed of innovation in medical information technologies requires ongoing resources and investment.” From the moment a patient enters the Hospital, IT systems enhance patient care, streamlining the patient registration process. Major infrastructure investments in our comprehensive electronic medical record system ensure that your doctor and care team has full and immediate access to the patient’s medical history, test results, and medications. As an inpatient, the Hospital’s medication management system guards each patient’s safety, ensuring that the patient receives the proper medication and dose at the right time, reducing the risk of dangerous medication errors or interactions. And at the time of hospital discharge, IT systems streamline the process to leave the Hospital with easy-to-understand discharge instructions. “IT investments represent nearly one-third of Virginia Hospital Center’s annual capital budget,” said Dr. DiLisi. “Hospital donors are our partners in making medical care as safe, efficient, and effective as possible, and I am grateful to our community for its support.”
