PH Care Centers logoAccreditation Affirms Inova's Reputation as a PH Expert

In September 2014, Inova's Pulmonary Hypertension Program was among the first six programs in the country to be accredited by the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) as a Comprehensive Care Center for Pulmonary Hypertension (CCC). Inova Fairfax served as the first pilot site to receive a site visit from PHA reviewers. The site visit was part of a nationwide accreditation effort by PHA to identify programs that provide the highest levels of expertise to effectively treat and manage pulmonary hypertension. This national designation identifies Inova Fairfax Hospital as one of the nation's premier providers of care for PH patients. Learn more about what it means to be a PH Care Center.
