Event Details:Don’t miss your last chance to view the special exhibition “Alexandria Hospital: Women Mobilize the Community,” closing March 31. Health care in Alexandria took a big step forward when a dynamic group of Alexandria women led by Julia Johns met to organize the Infirmary in December 1872. Through their efforts, townspeople were no longer required to go to Richmond or Washington to receive hospital care. The first purpose-built hospital facility was built in 1917 on the 700 block of Duke Street thanks to donations funding operating rooms, wards, and other facilities. Since then, the hospital has lead the way in it has been a leader in healthcare from its nursing school to its oncology program.
