Support the Hospital


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.

2018 Funding Priorities
