Inova's mission is to improve the health of the diverse community it serves through excellence in patient care, education and research.
Inova's service promise is that we seek every opportunity to meet the unique needs of each person we are privileged to serve – every time, every touch.
We seek to optimize the health and well-being of each individual we serve. We will achieve this by building the future of health through our Vision 2015:
- We will reinvent hospital-based care to increase value for our patients
- We will look outside our hospitals to build an integrated network of providers and programs to support our community
- We will gain national and international recognition and funding - as well as an expanded patient base - through world-renowned specialty care and leading-edge corporate and consumer health programs
