FAIRFAX, VA – June 10, 2014 – Inova Fair Oaks Hospital has been named one of the “100 Great Community Hospitals” in America for the second year in a row by Becker’s Hospital Review.  The 2014 edition is based on hospitals’ accolades, quality of care and services provided to their patient populations.

The hospitals featured on the list have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. Some are suburban hospitals, but many are located in rural areas and are their communities’ sole hospital. All have worked to provide the experience and quality of care their patients expect and deserve.

“Inova Fair Oaks Hospital is honored to be named one of the nation’s 100 Great Community Hospitals.  Being recognized with this award reinforces our dedication to providing high-quality care and services to the community we are privileged to serve,” said John Fitzgerald, Chief Executive Officer of Inova Fair Oaks Hospital.

The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, CareChex and American Hospital Association. iVantage recognitions considered include Healthstrong Hospitals, which are organizations in the top tier of iVantage’s Hospital Strength Index rankings, and the Top 100 Critical Access Hospital list, which indicates the critical access hospital performs as well or better at the median overall than all U.S. general acute-care hospitals in clinical and operational performance and financial outcomes. Inclusion on Truven Health Analytics’ 100 Top Hospitals list was also factored in.
