Why do you support Virginia Hospital Center?
Virginia Hospital Center is the centerpiece of our community. We all need the Hospital at one time or another, for either ourselves, our family, or our friends. And while I have supported the Hospital with both charitable contributions and my time as a volunteer, I have met some wonderful people along the way so the Hospital is an important part of my life.What would you say to others in our community about supporting the Hospital?
We live in one of the greatest communities in our country. The quality of life we enjoy in Arlington makes our community a great one and supporting your community hospital is a way to directly invest in an organization that is essentially linked to our quality of life.
What is your hope for healthcare in our community for the future?
Virginia Hospital Center truly excels in several areas including investment in advanced technology and making
new treatments available to our patients. I want Virginia Hospital Center to remain a leader in healthcare in our region.
