The Twig Pledges Another $1 Million

New gift to fund renovations at the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit

The Twig”, the Junior Auxiliary of Inova Alexandria Hospital, recently pledged another $1 million gift to the hospital – this time, to fund renovations at the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.

The funds will go toward renovations in the hospital’s Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU).

“We are so pleased to receive this donation from a partner that continues to demonstrate its commitment to improving care at Inova Alexandria Hospital,” says Susan Carroll, FACHE, MBA, MHA, Inova Alexandria’s CEO.

In 2010, The Twig pledged $1 million for The Twig Surgical Center, a 24-private-patient-room unit dedicated to the care of post-surgical patients. At the time, it was the largest pledge The Twig made toward the hospital since its inception in 1933.

Continuing renovations at CVICU will focus on infrastructure upgrades, state-of-the-art clinical space and an improved patient experience. Increased patient room size, private showers and bathrooms, space for family with room to sleep, more functional space for nurses, and flexibility to use the rooms for critical care or acute care are a few of the renovation enhancements the hospital is working to achieve.

The Twig is a nonprofit organization of women dedicated to providing financial aid, volunteer service and support to IAH. To date, The Twig has contributed more than $3.6 million to IAH. It also funds The Twig Nursing Scholarship, which is used to help a nurse further his or her education.
