Inova Fairfax Hospital: #1 in D.C. Metro Area

For the third year in a row, Inova Fairfax Medical Campus has been ranked as the #1 Hospital in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area by U.S. News & World Report. Inova Fairfax also jumped in rankings to #2 in the state, and earned national recognition as #33 in the country in Gynecology and #42 in Neonatology. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.

“Three years in a row as #1 is an outstanding accomplishment and we are proud of our hospital’s dedicated physicians and staff who provide the best of care to our patients every day. I’d like to congratulate our staff, particularly within Inova Women’s and Children’s for their impressive and well-deserved national rankings,” said Patrick Christiansen, PhD, chief executive officer, Inova Fairfax Medical Campus.

Inova Fairfax Medical Campus also earned high-performing rankings in 11 specialties:

  • Cancer

  • Cardiology and Heart Surgery

  • Diabetes and Endocrinology

  • Ear, Nose and Throat

  • Gastroenterology & GI Surgery,

  • Geriatrics

  • Nephrology

  • Neurology and Neurosurgery

  • Orthopedics

  • Pulmonology

  • Urology

In the recently released U.S. News Best Children’s Hospital Rankings, Inova Children’s Hospital was named 42nd in the nation for Neonatology.

U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or extra risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.

The rankings are freely available at and will appear in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2015” guidebook, available in August.

All five of Inova's hospitals were recognized again this year in the top 15 best hospitals in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, and top 20 in Virginia. To learn more about Inova Fairfax Medical Campus, visit
