Inova Loudoun Hospital Celebrates 100 Years With Black & White Ball
Inova Loudoun Hospital recently celebrated its 100th anniversary by hosting a Black & White Ball for more than 400 guests at Lansdowne Resort including Madison’s own Jim McDermott and his wife, Rebecca, an Inova Loudoun Hospital Foundation Board Trustee.
What began in 1912 as a modest hospital in a rented house on Market Street in downtown Leesburg is now ranked by US News & World Report as one of the Top 10 Best Regional Hospitals in the Washington, DC metro area (#8) and is also ranked #11 in Virginia. A 183-bed acute-care not-for-profit, Inova Loudoun Hospital is committed to treating anyone in need—regardless of their ability to pay. The Hospital was founded by members of the community and continues to partner with the community today to expand and improve services. Philanthropy plays a critical role in that growth with our goal being to obtain 10% of most capital projects through contributions.
In 2012, the hospital provided more than $28 million in community benefits, including $10 million of care to the uninsured, and is currently campaigning to raise $8.5 million for renovations to its Cornwall campus. The campus will house a new emergency department, imaging suite, lab, Loudoun Free Clinic, Loudoun Child Advocacy Center, and LAMPS (Loudoun Adult Medical and Psychiatric Services).
“It’s an honor to be a part of such an inspiring organization,” said Rebecca. “I have seen first-hand the wonderful work Inova does, benefitting our community and Jim and I felt fortunate to be part of its 100th year celebration.”
Inova Loudoun Hospital is a member of the not-for-profit Inova Health System located in Washington, DC. For more information on Inova Loudoun Hospital, please visit www.inova.org/ilh.
