Statement from Inova Regarding Washington Football Team Partnership

Following an unprecedented year in healthcare, Inova has revisited its strategic priorities and has become even more focused on advancing patient-centered care in the DC region.  With this focus in mind, Inova has made the decision to discontinue its medical team’s role as the team physicians for the Washington Football Team.

For the past five years, Dr. West and her team have provided world-class healthcare to the Washington Football Team’s players and are grateful for the opportunity to have supported the team, the fans and the community. The transition away from serving as the team’s lead medical provider will allow Inova’s orthopedic leadership team to focus on business and growth opportunities related to the health system’s Musculoskeletal Service line and the opening of Inova’s planned new hospital in Springfield, VA, which will serve as the hub for these services.

Inova has been a valued partner to the team and will continue its sponsorship as the Official Health System of the Washington Football Team through the 2021 season.  Inova looks forward to continuing to cheer for the hometown team and serving the community’s healthcare needs.
