Virginia Hospital Center launched the James B. Cole Healthcare Education Fund in honor of VHC President and CEO James B. Cole’s retirement after 36 years with the Hospital. The fund has raised over $700,000 towards advancing education and retaining high performers in healthcare.

With the healthcare industry losing more than 500,000 workers since 2020, this Healthcare Education Fund aims to assist the Hospital in recognizing high performers who aspire to careers in healthcare. Additionally, it will support professional development, certification, and the pursuit of meeting academic requirements toward earning a college degree for those who may not qualify for other existing VHC funds.

Donations to the James B. Cole Healthcare Education Fund can be made here. Thank you to our supporters at Avison Young, Kaiser Permanente, ePlus Technologies, Skanska, Shoemaker Construction LLC, Aramark, Raymond James, Commercial Condominium Management Co, and E4H.
