Hospital hits No. 7 in DC metropolitan area, No. 14 in Virginia
In August, Inova Mount Vernon Hospital (IMVH) learned that it has moved up even further in the annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings, achieving the strongest results in hospital history.
For 2018–19, IMVH has been ranked the No. 7 Best Hospital in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area (out of 57 hospitals), and No. 14 across the state of Virginia (out of 123 hospitals). In addition, IMVH earned “High Performing” recognition in orthopedics, hip replacement and knee replacement.
This latest recognition adds to a recent string of quality and patient safety accolades from outside agencies and accrediting bodies. Earlier this year, IMVH was awarded a 5-Star (top) ranking by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — one of about 7 percent of hospitals nationally to receive this ranking. And IMVH has now received seven consecutive “Grade A” Patient Safety rankings from The Leapfrog Group, the nation’s largest private patient safety advocacy organization.
“These achievements are a reflection of the hard work and commitment of so many people at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital,” says Don Brideau, MD, IMVH Chief Executive Officer. “Our continued pursuit of high quality and high reliability translates into safe, effective and high-quality care.”
