2. Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center Foundation History. “WWRC was begun in 1947 when the Woodrow Wilson General Army Hospital was declared surplus and purchased by the Commonwealth of Virginia from the federal War Assets Administration. The first student enrolled on November 3, 1947. The Foundation was not formed until considerably later due in large part to the fact that rehabilitation as a profession was just emerging.” (Submitted on December 17, 2011.)
