Verdugo Hills Hospital (VHH) received a $21,000 donation from the VHH Foundation’s Women’s Council during a recent luncheon celebration at the hospital. The funds raised will help support the hospital’s Computers on Wheels project, which is part of VHH’s Electronic Medical Record system, as well as assist with the purchase of infant warmers for the hospital’s Beginnings Family Birth Center.
