Murphy Honored as an “Alexandria Living Legend”
Gregory Murphy, a partner in the Vorys Washington, D.C. office and a member of the litigation group, was recently honored as an Alexandria Living Legend. The Living Legends of Alexandria is an ongoing 501(c)(3) photo-documentary project to identify, honor and chronicle the people making current history in Alexandria. Murphy was selected for his community service work.
An article profiling Murphy ran in the January 16, 2014 edition of the Alexandria Gazette Packet. The profile highlighted his service on the board of the Alexandria Hospital.
The article states:
“Perhaps Murphy’s greatest contribution was his role in leading the merger of the hospital into the INOVA Healthcare System, thereafter serving on its parent board from 1998-2008 and chairing its Strategic Alliances Committee. Rejecting a proposed merger two years before, Murphy jokes that Alexandria Hospital ultimately ‘acquired INOVA’ as the merger allowed for five of Alexandria’s board members to join the INOVA board. As part of that merger, Murphy ensured that contributions to the hospital would fund only its projects, which resulted in new cancer and cardiac rehabilitation centers, and $80 million of improvements in outpatient surgery facilities and the emergency room to handle the doubled capacity of over 100,000 yearly visits since the merger.
Outside of his hospital board work, Murphy has over 25 years of additional volunteer service and pro bono legal counsel in Alexandria. He instigated the upgrade of the Alexandria Bar Association’s law library to serve the entire community and established a lawyer referral service.”
