Inova Trauma Center is based at Inova Fairfax Hospital and is Northern Virginia’s only Level 1 trauma center for both adults and children. “Level 1” is a designation awarded to trauma centers offering only the highest, most comprehensive level of trauma care available.
Our team of trauma surgeons, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, specialty surgeons and nurses is available around-the-clock, 365 days a year, to treat traumatic injuries including car crashes, falls, industrial incidents and gunshot wounds. Burn patients are stabilized and then transferred to a burn center.
For our youngest trauma patients, board-certified pediatric emergency physicians, supported by physicians in all pediatric subspecialties, treat critically ill and injured children 24 hours a day. Learn more about pediatric emergency care at Inova Children's Hospital.
Inova Trauma Center specialists provide rapid response to more than 3,500 trauma patients annually from Fairfax and surrounding counties and states. For the most seriously ill or injured patients, PHI AirCare, a flying intensive care unit, provides helicopter transport within a 200-mile radius of the hospital.
