Inova care sites are open – Your health is our priority

All Inova sites are open and serving patients. However, the global IT outage has affected some Inova technology systems. As patient safety is our top priority, we have taken measures to limit the impact to patient care while we work to fully restore standard operations.

Inova Transplant Center is one of the most active transplant programs in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, area. Associated with Inova Fairfax Hospital, recognized as one of the nation's finest hospitals, the center performed the region's first heart transplant as well as the first lung and kidney transplants in Northern Virginia. The center enjoys a well-deserved reputation for innovation and excellence. People from throughout the region come Inova when transplant is their last and only life-saving option.

Our comprehensive approach to patient care demonstrates our commitment to excellence, patient satisfaction and cost reduction.
