Message From Our CEO

Welcome to Pediatric Specialists of Virginia and thank you for visiting our website! Pediatric Specialists of Virginia is a unique partnership between two of our region’s top health systems—Children’s National Hospital and Inova Health system. Our mission is to provide the best possible pediatric specialty care to the children of Northern Virginia. We are very proud of what we do here to take great care of children here, and it shows! We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our ability to provide exceptional care and service to your family.

This unique partnership allows us to leverage all the talent, resources and expertise of Inova and Children’s National! Our providers care for children at both of these leading health care organizations, giving our patients access to a wide range of the nation’s best pediatric specialty care providers. As we continue to grow, PSV brings additional locations and specialties into our practice, offering more accessible and coordinated care and support to children and their families. In adapting to our “new normal” during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve also greatly expanded and improved our Telemedicine capabilities so that your child can receive outstanding specialty care without leaving home and as safely as possible.

We invite you to stay in touch as we grow, expanding our ways to do what we love to do—taking great care of kids.
