Martin Brown, MD, FACEP
Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine
Inova Alexandria Hospital
Enlightened. Dynamic. Pioneering. These adjectives aptly describe Dr. Brown’s leadership. His forward thinking created a one-of-a-kind stroke program that saves lives and an ingenious low-risk chest protocol that improves the utilization of resources. Dr. Brown in partnership with his nursing colleagues reengineered patient care in the IAH ED resulting in shorter stays and improved patient satisfaction.
And before opioids captured headlines across the nation, Dr. Brown implemented a successful program to reduce the use of the addictive painkillers in the ED. His bold leadership and unprecedented care have generated several significant philanthropic gifts.
