Virginia Hospital Center Foundation’s Women’s Health and Empowerment Circle engages and inspires women to support excellent medical care, advanced medical technologies and the best options for child, senior and women’s healthcare. WHEC members support critical areas of Virginia Hospital Center and help to advance its mission to be the Best Hospital.

The Women’s Health and Empowerment Circle (WHEC) is a collection of dedicated women who value community, and want to ensure access to the best medical care is available to everyone through support for Virginia Hospital Center and its programs.


Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who attended Flash Dance at Assaggi Osteria on June 10th. It was a fantastic evening with Dr. Terri Remy and Pany Nazari.

2015 Funding Priorities

WHEC determines fundraising priorities for each year. In 2015 WHEC is raising $100,000 to support several key initiatives that directly impact the care that patients receive including:

  • Nursing and allied healthcare education that bring the latest medical advances directly to the bedside.  
  • A planned expansion of the Women & Infant Health program to support expectant mothers with high risk pregnancies.
  • Medical care for low income and uninsured children through the Hospital’s Arlington Pediatric Center (APC).  Without APC, thousands of children in Arlington would lack access to basic healthcare.
