Dedication to injury prevention, education, and support
Traumatic injury is the number one preventable cause of death for people aged 1 – 44. The Inova Trauma Center staff at both Inova Fairfax and Inova Loudoun Hospitals are dedicated to education and outreach to prevent these unnecessary deaths and injuries, and to treat and support trauma survivors.
Inova Trauma Center – Fairfax: Northern Virginia's Only Level 1 Trauma Center
Inova Fairfax Hospital is Northern Virginia’s only Level 1 trauma center. The designation has continually been given to Inova Fairfax Hospital by the Commonwealth of Virginia since 1981. Additionally, we have been verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) since 1993.
Patients are transported to the Inova Trauma Center at Inova Fairfax Hospital from Fairfax County, the surrounding counties, West Virginia, and Maryland. We treat traumatic injuries that result from car crashes, falls, industrial incidents, recreational injuries, and acts of violence. Our trauma surgeons and trauma team are available around the clock, 365-days a year to treat life-threatening injuries.
Inova Trauma Center – Loudoun: Loudoun County’s Only Trauma Center
Inova Loudoun Hospital is Loudoun County’s first and only designated trauma center. Originally designated as a Level III trauma center in 2016, we were officially verified by the state of Virginia in spring 2018.
In an effort to provide the highest level of emergency care in our community, the Trauma Center was enhanced through the expansion of the Inova Virts Miller Family Emergency and Trauma Center – a nationally-acclaimed, full service emergency room for adults at Inova Loudoun Hospital.
Patients are transported to the Inova Trauma Center at Inova Loudoun Hospital from all over Loudoun County, the surrounding counties, and West Virginia. We treat traumatic injuries that result from car crashes, falls, industrial incidents, recreational injuries, and acts of violence.
