About Pediatric Specialists of Virginia (PSV): Pediatric Specialists of Virginia (PSV) is a 501(c)(3) public charity that was initially formed as a unique joint venture by Children’s National Health System and Inova.  The vision of our founding partners was to create a Northern Virginia-based, physician group practice dedicated exclusively to the needs of children.  In 2013, these two pediatric powerhouses drew from their resources to form Pediatric Specialists of Virginia, offering children and families in Northern Virginia access to the best specialty care possible.  Pediatric Specialists of Virginia launched with five specialties and has tripled in size over the last 18 months.  In the next several years, PSV will grow with additional specialties and services for those we serve, including the expansion of a state-of-the-art pediatric Ambulatory Surgery Center in Spring, 2015.  For more information about PSV, please visit
