What Are Your Thoughts on Joining Inova Fair Oaks Hospital as CEO?

By Donald Brideau, MD, MMM

Don Brideau

I’m extremely excited to work with the Inova Fair Oaks Hospital (IFOH) team. They have a commitment to excellence that is evident every day. My immediate goal is to get to know the team and any issues or barriers facing IFOH so that we can better work together and continue to offer excellent care. 

One of the advantages that I have as an executive, both formerly at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital (IMVH) and now at IFOH, is that I’m still a practicing physician. As a physician, you learn how important it is to listen to all of the stakeholders on any given issue, so everyone has the ability to be heard. As an executive, I’m involved in strategic decisions and know the importance of including those who will be impacted directly by any strategic changes. Their input affects the outcome. In addition to my roles as CEO and a practicing physician, I love to educate. I lecture in the community about topics such as smoking cessation and heart disease prevention. I hope to see you at one of my lectures!
