Client News: Inova Health System Ranked Among Washington, DC Region Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report

Inova Health System’s five hospitals have been ranked among the best hospitals in the Washington, DC region in U.S. News & World Report's first-ever Best Hospitals Metro Area rankings.
The rankings for Inova’s hospitals are as follows:
Hospital                                U.S. News DC Area Ranking
Inova Fairfax Hospital                           2
Inova Loudoun Hospital                        8
Inova Alexandria Hospital                    13
Inova Fair Oaks Hospital                     15
Inova Mount Vernon Hospital               21
To be ranked in its metro area, a hospital had to score in the top 25 percent among its peers in at least one of 16 medical specialties. Inova Fairfax Hospital has been ranked among U.S. News’  “America's Best Hospitals” fourteen times in the past 15 years.
“The physicians, nurses and staff at Inova are fully dedicated to providing quality patient care,” said Loring Flint, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Inova Health System. “We consistently work to bring the latest technologies and techniques to serve the community, and it’s very rewarding to see our hospitals named among the best.”

With that mission in mind, Inova is positioning itself at the forefront of genetics-based personalized medicine and is on the leading edge of bringing new treatments from the “bench to the bedside” safely and quickly. 
“The new Best Hospitals metro rankings can tell you which hospitals are worth considering for most medical problems if you live in or near a major metro area,” said Avery Comarow, health rankings editor, U.S. News & World Report.
