INOVA Health is teaming up with Children’s Medical Center to provide specialists in the health profession to treat more young patients in the Northern Virginia area. The twenty million dollar partnership is one of few in the nation but was designed to answer the increase demand in Pediatric specialties. The practice, Pediatric Specialists of Virginia is slated to begin providing services in the fall to three locations in the Falls Church and Fairfax area. Their plan, which has been in the works for the past 18 months, is to start with 30 to 40 specialists in the following areas: orthopedics, gastroenterology, nephrology, genetics and hematology/oncology. As the practice grows, their list of specialties will expand. Since most of the doctors will be from INOVA and Children’s Medical center, patients may have access to clinical trial from both hospitals.
