Patient Success Stories

“I’ve delivered four children here with Karen King, Certified Nurse Midwife. I wouldn’t deliver anywhere else.”
— Sarah Girard, Annandale.


“I was on 24/7 bed rest in the Hospital for 9 weeks. My ‘destination wedding’ planned for Hilton Head ended up being in the chapel at Virginia Hospital Center. The Hospital chaplain married us, the lactation consultant played the flute and the nurses gave us a reception on the unit. It was unforgettable.”
— Jamie Weiskopf Taylor, Ashburn.


“My water broke just shy of 25 weeks. The amazing care I received on the antepartum unit helped me deliver safely at 28 weeks. It could have been a different outcome without the care my baby and I received.”
— Taylor Draim, Arlington.


“I had lost two babies before. My beautiful Yessenia was born at 31 weeks and weighed a little over 3 pounds. I love everybody in the NICU—the doctors and nurses gave her so much attention. She‘s thriving now.”
— Maria Comacho, Alexandria.


“Having a private room makes all the difference in the world after you’ve delivered a baby—or two. I can’t imagine having to share a room.”
— Mary Anne Painter, Falls Church.
