Women’s Council

Purpose: To promote and advance the welfare of USC Verdugo Hills Hospital (VHH) and its staff and patients through ways and means approved by its governing board, through fund-raising and friend-raising activities conducted within the hospital and surrounding communities.

History: The Women’s Council of the VHH Foundation was founded shortly after VHH opened its doors in 1972. The Women’s Council formally began on June 20, 1973, with more than 200 members meeting for a garden champagne brunch at the home of Sue Lindstrom.

Since its founding, the Women’s Council has raised over $3 million for hospital programs and services, making the Council a vital part of the VHH Foundation team.

For information on joining the Women’s Council or to support their fundraising efforts, please contact the Foundation Office at (818) 952-2226.
