Inova Enters a New Chapter for Heart Health – Inova Schar Heart and Vascular

Already celebrated as a leader in cardiovascular, advanced lung disease and cardiopulmonary care, a recently announced $75 million transformational gift from Dwight and Martha Schar will support the next chapter in development of heart, vascular, advanced lung disease and cardiopulmonary services.

Inova is pleased to announce the renaming of Inova Heart and Vascular Institute to Inova Schar Heart and Vascular.

    • Conduct clinical research that employs state-of-the-art techniques to further strengthen and improve patient care for heart and vascular disease
