Inova Loudoun Hospital is a nationally acclaimed, technologically sophisticated community hospital with a focus on patient care. They have been delivering comprehensive, compassionate care for the entire Loudoun family for more than a century, and they are dedicated to continuing this tradition.
Inova Loudoun Hospital is home to the only recognized trauma center in Loudoun County, as well as a pediatric emergency room, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and a hospital-based natural birth center, among other services.
They also have two more free-standing emergency rooms (ERs) that are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week in Ashburn and Leesburg. They are Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals (ASRH) certified by the Joint Commission, and they make it convenient for Loudoun residents to access high-quality emergency care.
Dietary services are accessible around the clock, seven days a week. During the admissions procedure, the nurses inquire about the patient’s diet and eating habits, which they record.
Patients with diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, renal disease, and liver disease can request special diets, which are accommodated and prepared by the hospital’s kitchen. Patients with religious, ethnic, or individual preferences, such as vegetarians, are also catered to by these facilities.
The Ladies Board of the Inova Loudoun Hospital has a gift shop on the premises. It is conveniently positioned on the first level, near the information desk, making it easy to find. This gift shop sells a wide variety of things, including purses and jewelry as well as scarves and popcorn shirts, candies, flowers, and a limited number of toiletry items.
Chapel services are available at Inova Loudon Hospital as well. The Lisa Dugan Chapel, which is located on the first floor of the hospital, is available for prayer, meditation, and personal reflection.
Elizabeth Dugan, PhD, RN, MBA, MSN, NEA-BC, was an outstanding leader and nurse at Inova Loudoun Hospital from 1995 to 2017. Her interfaith chapel, which has been completely renovated, is named in her honor.
Patient, coworker, and fellow nurse Dugan made a positive impact on the lives of everyone she met before succumbing to cancer in 2017. She was a loyal wife and mother of four children who loved her job.
Lisa’s life, the art of healing, her love and dedication to this community, as well as her deep faith, are all celebrated in the architecture of the chapel. Her enduring influence is expressed in the chapel’s use of light, water images, and a sense of calm and tranquillity.
