Support the Hospital

The Galen Society is Virginia Hospital Center's Leadership Giving Group dedicated to advancing medical excellence through philanthropy.

The Galen Society, reestablished in 2007, has a long and prestigious history at Virginia Hospital Center. Its original members established an endowment that provides ongoing support for key medical service lines at Virginia Hospital Center. Galen Society members recognize the vital role the Hospital plays in the community, 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year.

By committing a generous gift or pledge of $10,000 or more, members play a major role in advancing the Hospital’s mission to provide state-of-the-art, comprehensive and personalized health care to the Northern Virginia and the Washington DC area.

The Galen Society Membership

Virginia Hospital Center is the only independent hospital in Northern Virginia. This means the Hospital is uniquely positioned to meet the changing needs of the community it serves.

"In appreciation for the outstanding care, Dr. Robert Hong and his team provided for me and every patient that undergoes radiation therapy. I hope my photographs that I donated to the Hitt Family Center for Radiation Oncology will provide an atmosphere of hope and healing."
– Bruce Dale, National Geographic Photographer and Galen Society member since 2014.

"Supporting Virginia Hospital Center is extremely important to us because we believe having an excellent medical facility in our community is critical. Through these efforts, we are also part of the supportive network for Arlington Pediatric Center (APC). This is truly meaningful because we are raising a family in Arlington and feel every child deserves quality medical care."
– Brian and Chris Normile, Galen Society members since 2010.
