Verdugo Hills Hospital (VHH) received a $10,000 donation from the VHH Foundation’s Women’s Council during a recent luncheon celebration at the hospital. The unrestricted funds raised will help support the purchase of capital equipment for the hospital. The event also included the installation ceremony of the 2013 Women’s Council board of directors when Eileen Akers was named the new chair of the Women’s Council.
