Inova Fair Oaks Hospital Auxiliary has a long and proud history serving the hospital and its patients. Started in 1977 at Commonwealth Hospital and continuing through the relocation and renaming of our hospital to Inova Fair Oaks, our Auxiliary serves to promote and improve the general health of the community through education, service and goodwill.
Inova Fair Oaks Hospital Auxiliary is a non-profit (501c) organization governed by an Executive Committee and oversees the fundraising activities of Inova Fair Oaks Hospital’s 400 volunteers. Auxiliary members conduct various sales and events throughout the year, as well as, assisting with the operation of our gift shop and thrift store.
All proceeds from the sales and events, along with the proceeds from the gift shop and thrift store operations, are used to purchase equipment and to support ongoing hospital projects. In 2018, the Auxiliary donated more than $ $669,000! In Spring 2019, they generously donated $567,817.78 for a 3-D mammography machine to the Inova Fair Oaks Hospital Radiology Department.
