Dr. Rina Bansal received a check for $100,000 by the Twig Junior Auxiliary of Inova Alexandria Hospital for the Inova COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness Fund. It was given during a May 22 ceremony held outside the hospital’s entrance.
Dr. Stephen Jones, President, and Chief Executive Officer at Inova Health Systems said, “We are grateful for what The Twig has brought to Alexandria against this new disease. Our fight against COVID-19 here will match the best care of anywhere in the country.”
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The Twig’s contribution, to be used exclusively at Inova Alexandria, was raised through its thrift shop sales and annual Historic Homes tour, among other fundraising efforts by Twig members. The resources will help the hospital meet the escalating needs of COVID-19 patients by providing for additional staffing, personal protection equipment for front line workers, specialized equipment needs of COVID-19 patients, increased services for homebound families, and other necessary resources.”
As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Founded in 1933, The Twig has donated over $4 million dollars to the hospital for a variety of projects and provides an annual Nursing Scholarship to a member of the nursing staff to advance their nursing career. This year’s scholarship recipient is Emily Hagedorn, who was awarded her scholarship during the May 22 ceremony. Hagedorn will pursue a Masters of Science and Nursing at Johns Hopkins University.”
