    Kevin Callanan and The Valley Health Cancer Center

    Kevin Callanan and The Valley Health Cancer Center

    In this episode, we visit the Valley Health Cancer Center in Winchester, VA. When you walk through the doors of this remarkable place, you think of all the people who have found comfort here in the midst of an unthinkable struggle. Sunlight pours into the center’s two-story glass lobby. There are meditation rooms, prayer chapels, and even a healing garden where rocking chairs sit on a patio at the edge of a beautiful pond. The infusion center is positioned so that patients can look out over the garden during treatment.

    Before the center was built, cancer treatment in Winchester, VA took place in locations with dark hallways and crowded waiting rooms. Some had to be treated hours away from home, adding to the stress of living with the disease. Now, patients, their families, and their medical team have a place that was designed to help them find peace.

    The center is a shining example of the kind of impact a foundation can have on a community. I’m here to meet Kevin Callanan, the former executive director of The Valley Health Foundation and leader of the $10 million capital campaign that funded the center’s creation.

    A native of Virginia, Mr. Callanan attended VMI, and holds a master’s degree in philanthropy and development from LaGrange College. He served our nation for 28 years as an officer in the US Army, retiring in 2006 as a Lieutenant Colonel.

    During his 25-year fundraising career, Mr. Callanan has raised over $56 million for community hospitals and schools. His work with Valley Health was his biggest project to date.

    I wanted to find out more about the work that went into building this place, what role foundations play in supporting care delivery in our communities, and how they’re shaping the future of healthcare.

    Making sports safer for athletes is one of today’s top issues in healthcare. There’s more awareness than ever before regarding the danger of concussions, but we still have a long way to go before we fully understand head trauma and how it’s affecting our athletes.

His presence in America allowed him to lead his family through difficult times and pave the way for his daughter’s success. Dr. Adlakha says that none of this would have been possible if he hadn’t had the loving support of the Gill family.

    Today, we will learn how Dr. Adlakha was able to repay the Gill family’s kindness and what he learned from his experiences.
