Women’s Health and Empowerment Circle (WHEC)

As women, caring for ourselves is a top priority that competes with caring for our loved ones and our community.  Women are the “CEOs” of their family’s healthcare – making appointments, taking temperatures and worrying about test results.  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.   For ourselves and for everyone, we 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.

Join WHEC Today!
