Inova Heart and Vascular Institute
The award-winning Inova Heart and Vascular Institute not only leads the country with top-ranked physicians right here in Northern Virginia, but also conducts innovative research that impacts patient lives for years to come.
Every day, they save lives. The award-winning Inova Heart and Vascular Institute (IHVI) is one of the leading heart and vascular clinics in our region with over 25+ outpatient physician practice sites and five cardiac surgery ORs/hybrid ORs staffed by cardiologists, electrophysiologists, pulmonologists, and subspecialized surgeons.
From pediatric cardiology services focused on newborns and children in need of swift cardiac intervention, to adults requiring any one of dozens of different cardiac and vascular surgical procedures, IHVI teams served over 71,000 patients this past year with a level of care that is unmatched.
With a focus on innovation, IHVI leads the way in advanced technology and skilled surgeons who have access to the latest in minimally invasive techniques and the full range of treatment options. IHVI is also consistently on the short list of U.S. hospitals selected to study the latest advances in heart disease treatments, including trials for atrial fibrillation and heart valve disease.
“I am honored that the entire team at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute are being recognized during the Evening with the Inova Stars. Every day, we are dedicated to providing the very best patient care supported by research, a strong commitment to lifelong learning and the highest quality state-of-the-art treatment.
