Visit the Lisa Dugan Chapel

chapelLocated on the first floor of the hospital, the Lisa Dugan Chapel is open for prayer, meditation and reflection. Write prayers and thoughts in the Chapel Book, light a battery operated candle, help yourself to prayer rugs.

This newly remodeled interfaith chapel is named for Elizabeth “Lisa” Dugan, PhD, RN, MBA, MSN, NEA-BC, an inspiring leader and nurse at Inova Loudoun Hospital from 1995-2017. A devoted wife and mom of four beloved children, she touched the lives of patients, employees and fellow nurses alike before losing a valiant battle with cancer in 2017. The design of the chapel honors Lisa’s life—the art of healing, her love and dedication to this community, and her rich faith. Her lasting legacy is reflected in the chapel’s use of light, water imagery, and peace.
