Project Give Hope
project give hope hallway

As you walk down the extended hallway leading to the Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), you are greeted by an inspirational exhibit featuring the smiling faces of former NICU patients, now ages one through early adulthood, and a whimsical mural. Project Give Hope officially opened in June and was created for the parents, family, and friends of newborns being cared for in the Virginia Hospital Center NICU. Through the collaborative work of photographer Jen Gentry and muralist Amy Tubbs, Project Give Hope is an ongoing fundraiser for the NICU and is dedicated to our most delicate patients and the NICU staff who provide high quality and compassionate care every day. Support Project Give Hope  by naming a mural element in honor of a loved one.

A Special Thank You  Friends of Nursing
A special thanks to our friends at Dominion Anesthesia:
 In May, Virginia Hospital Center held its annual Friends of Nursing event which celebrates nurses and their extraordinary impact on patients lives. The establishment of the Michael Chaikind, M.D. Memorial Fund was announced, with a lead $100,000 gift from Dominion Anesthesia. This fund will provide critically needed resources to support professional development and education for nurses and staff in peri-operative services. This fund was made possible by Dominion Anesthesia and many memorial contributions, which honor the life of Dr. Michael Chaikind and his dedication to medical excellence.
