Arlington Community Partners Battle Breast Health for Those Most in Need

Virginia Hospital Center was honored to continue its collaboration with the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office and Koons Arlington Toyota for their annual fundraiser.

In 2020, they came together once again to advance the work of the Hospital’s Outpatient Clinic — focusing on Breast Health. The Sheriff’s Office chose this program to honor two of their staff who received care and treatment for breast cancer at the Hospital. Sheriff Beth Arthur remarks, “It warms my heart, visiting the Clinic and witnessing how our annual fundraising donations have impacted many lives with better healthcare and state-of-the-art facilities.”

Donor Digest

As a not-for-profit hospital, Virginia Hospital Center depends on the community to be able to provide state-of-the art health care. And this past year, community support has helped healthcare heroes confront the unprecedented pandemic head-on — in the fight of our lives and theirs.

Among our notable donations in the past months, the Hospital received:

  • A $210,000 estate gift from Gladys G. Shulaw, who wanted to support clinical technicians through the Friends of Nursing Fund.
  • A $100,000 contribution from a first-time donor to name an in-patient Medical Surgical room.
  • Two separate gifts of $25,000 from two different families in support of various nursing scholarships.

Plus, the annual VHC Pediatrics Toy Drive donated more than 1,000 toys and gift cards to underserved and underinsured children and families throughout December.
