Virginia Hospital Center selected as a 100 Top Hospital - Again!

For the second year in a row, Virginia Hospital Center has been named one of America's 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, the nation's leading independent organization that evaluates nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals. We are one of only two hospitals in the Virginia/Washington DC/Baltimore region to be so named and are honored to be recognized as part of this elite group. This acknowledgement is particularly prestigious because it cannot be applied for, so the selection process is based entirely upon objective, public data from trusted sources on the quality of care that a hospital provides.


This award serves as confirmation that Virginia Hospital Center is as a national healthcare leader in clinical excellence and patient experience. To learn more click here.
