For our youngest trauma patients, board-certified pediatric emergency physicians, supported by physicians in all pediatric subspecialties, treat critically ill and injured children 24 hours a day. Inova Trauma Center specialists provide rapid response to more than 3,500 trauma patients annually from Fairfax and surrounding counties and states.
