Every year, U.S. News and World Report releases its best hospital rankings and this year Inova Loudoun Hospital ranked in the Top 15 in Virginia.
Inova Loudoun was recognized as one of the best hospitals in Northern Virginia, 8th in the Washington D.C. Metro area and 11th in Virginia.
Other Inova hospitals also did well in the rankings with all of the five hospitals under the Inova name ranking in the top 20. Inova’s flagship hospital Inova Fairfax Hospital was ranked first on the list.
“Inova is reinventing healthcare, increasing value for our patients,” Knox Singleton, CEO of Inova Health System said. “Our care model emphasizes collaboration between physician, patient and family underscoring wellness, education, research and care management as part of our commitment to improving the health of the community we serve.”
Included in the reports rankings are specialty rankings. Inova Loudoun preformed well in several specialties including Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, Nephrology, Orthopedics, Pulmonology and Urology.
According to the news release, this year’s rankings showcases more than 720 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals. Fewer than 150 are nationally ranked in at least one of 16 medical specialties. The rest of the recognized hospitals met a standard of performance nearly as demanding in one or more specialties.
U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow says the hospital rankings are an aid for patients to guide them to the hospitals with strong skills in procedures and medical conditions needed by prospective patients.
“All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care. They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.” Comarow said.
