Thank you for choosing the Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group. We are committed to providing excellent service and care to you and your patient. As of January 2014, our multi-specialty physician group has undergone a few changes to include a single, new Electronic Health Record (EHR) across our group, new practice names and logos, and a website launching in early 2014.
Comprised of 100+ members, the Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group consists of a wide range of medical and surgical specialists. We are dedicated to both patient and referring physician satisfaction. We conduct patient satisfaction surveys on an ongoing basis and facilitate timely change to resolve any issues. Our goal is to do the same for you. We welcome and encourage your feedback on any challenges you may have faced when working with our group so that we can also address and resolve your concerns.
Virginia Hospital Center has an unwavering commitment to practicing safe and responsible medicine of the highest quality. In 2013, Virginia Hospital Center was named one of America’s Top 100 Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics. Many of our Physician Group members contributed to that distinct honor. I am also pleased to write that Truven Health Analytics recently named Virginia Hospital Center as one of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Center Hospitals in America—the only one in the Washington area.
Thank you again for choosing the Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year.
