Fairfax Board of Supervisors Approves Inova’s Plans for World-Class Health Innovation District

Inova Center for Personalized Health will elevate Fairfax County as a destination for health discovery, research, education, and treatment  

Fairfax, Virginia — Inova announced today that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors yesterday approved its land use applications for the Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH). By establishing a destination for world-class patient care, health discovery, research, and education, the campus represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to elevate Fairfax County as a destination for health innovation that will improve the quality of life for all residents, as well as attract new economic development.

Inova’s vision is to create a place where clinicians work side-by-side with researchers and educators from the Commonwealth’s top universities and commercial partners to provide best-in-class care. This thriving ecosystem will provide powerful new tools for economic development by creating an environment that attracts anchor institutions, innovative companies, and knowledge workers.

“Our mission at Inova is to provide world-class healthcare, and we have the ability to focus that mission on this campus in a way that’s never before been possible in Northern Virginia,” said J. Stephen Jones, MD, CEO of Inova. “We’re grateful to the Board of Supervisors, the Planning Commission, the citizen task force and community groups who believe in our vision and worked with us to design a wonderful community asset.”

Located on 117 acres that was once a secluded corporate headquarters, the campus now will be transformed into a vibrant innovation district with dynamic academic and research spaces, along with supporting retail, hotel, housing, and recreation uses that are open and inviting to the community.

Inova began renovating existing buildings on the campus in early 2016, and several of the buildings are already fully occupied. The campus is anchored by the Inova Schar Cancer Institute, a state-of-the-art cancer care destination in Fairfax County designed to meet the needs of our evolving region and to bring healing and hope to our patients. The cancer institute opened in May. The building that will house the Global Genomics and Bioinformatics Research Institute, a partnership among the University of Virginia, Inova, George Mason University and the Commonwealth of Virginia, is currently under renovation.
