The Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital has committed to the largest gift in its 107-year history, pledging to contribute $1.2 million to help meet various hospital needs, including patient programs and services, staff education and clinical equipment.
“We are extremely grateful for this incredible promise of support from The Ladies Board. Through their grit, grace, and dedicated service, they make an enormous impact on the patients we are privileged to serve. We are inspired by their commitment to our hospital and our community,” stated Inova Loudoun Hospital President Deborah Addo.
The funding comes from a variety of programs run by the volunteer organization, including the hospital gift shop, the Twice Is Nice Thrift shop in Leesburg, the annual Lights of Love program and the annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale.
The gift boosts the hospital’s five-year Loudoun Rising capital campaign over the $20 million goal, according to Dr. Edward V. Puccio, who his leading that effort.
In recognition of this contribution, the hospital will name two new spaces in honor of The Ladies Board—a new education center and a healing garden adjacent to the new patient tower that will open in April.
