As he walks the halls of Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, Chef Frank Murnane is hard to miss. Standing 6 feet 7 inches in his starched-white uniform, he is a formidable figure, but is mostly known for his compassion and care for his patients.

Chef Frank won an award from the hospital administration for creating a puree pizza for a dying patient and his service to others is also reflected in his 30-year military career.
