We are located on the campus of Inova's flagship hospital, Inova Fairfax Hospital. Together we share state-of-the-art technology, research and teaching innovations, and a dedicated team approach to patient care, including national Magnet recognition for nursing excellence.
Awards and recognition
Our programs are nationally recognized. U.S. News and World Report has again ranked Inova Children’s Hospital among the best in the nation in Neonatology. We are also the only hospital in the region to be nationally ranked in both women’s and children’s care.
According to U.S. News, only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized as high-performing among their region’s best, and just three percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.
In 2011, Inova Fairfax Hospital received the first ever certification from The Joint Commission for prematurity and NICU care at Inova Children's Hospital. The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ validates that the care premature babies receive in our neonatal intensive care unit not only meets, but exceeds the national standards. Learn more
