At Virginia Hospital Center, we put our patients first. Donate below to help us ensure that we have enough beds to support our community’s growing population and employ the nation’s top medical staff. Every gift strengthens our ability to provide the best healthcare services to your community for generations to come.
THIS IS OUR VISION FOR VIRGINIA HOSPITAL CENTER
We are embarking on the largest transformation that our campus has been through since we first opened our doors in 1944. We invite you to follow along on this journey as we seek to transform the way we deliver care so that we can continue to be the hospital that is there for you in your greatest times of need.
Statement from the Co-Chairs
We feel very fortunate to have Virginia Hospital Center as a resource available to us. However, we know that having world class and accessible medical care in our growing community comes at a cost in terms of new technologies and expanding needs. This is why we have made a commitment to our health and the health of our community by supporting the Virginia Hospital Center Foundation’s Power of Community campaign with a financial gift.
We also know that our gift will help the Hospital build and retain the facilities and staff necessary to offer the best in medical care and wellness. Our investment in the Hospital’s future is also a personal one. It not only ensures world class care close to home when we need it most, it offers our family a way to say “thank you” while creating a lasting legacy.

In August 2019, VHC began construction on a $250 million project to expand the hospital’s outpatient capacity and improve community access to care. The Outpatient Pavilion will be located on a 5.5 acre parcel next to VHC’s main campus, the facility will support surgery, women’s imaging, pharmacy, an outpatient lab, endoscopy, physical therapy and medical offices. The project is slated to deliver by the end of 2022.
4A Patient Unit
This 21-bed, med/surg unit was designed and constructed in record time and incorporates many design features focused on both patients and caregivers, with the ultimate goal of enabling unparalleled healing and treatment. The unit incorporates central caregiver support areas with both physical and visual connectivity, patient nourishment areas, a private family consult room as well as staff respite areas. The use of artwork, furniture and high-end finishes merging decorative tile, stone and wood-look surfaces all contribute to an extremely comforting space.
Within the new patient rooms a large footprint is utilized to establish well thought out, highly functional zones for caregiver, family and patient. Each private patient room is complete with spacious toilet/shower rooms, wall-mounted charting stations, large patient televisions, family sleeper sofas, patient recliner chairs, beautiful artwork and built in benches and storage options. Starting with the set-back entry with sound absorbing ceiling elements, all of the features within the new rooms are carefully designed to give the feeling and comfort of home within a healing environment.Additionally, the unit’s ventilation system was modified in response to COVID to allow for remote conversion from positive to negative pressure, providing an extra layer of protection for patients and staff.
