Northern Virginia = Great Healthcare

When it comes to selecting a home, there are a number of things that families and individuals consider.  Most will say that location, good schools, shopping centers, parks, and safety are all important factors when buying a home.  Subsequently, many people also consider access to good healthcare.  The Northern Virginia area is a great place that encompasses all of these options.

Fairfax County is home to one of the best school systems in the country.  There is plenty of access to great shopping and it is in a great location with Washington D.C. being less than thirty minutes away, minus the traffic of course.  Another bonus is that it houses some of the best medical care available.  Inova Fairfax Hospital is ranked among the best hospitals in the country and is a default trauma center for most surrounding medical centers.  They have the ability to handle the most complicated cases and have the updated facilities to treat their patients with cutting edge technology and the best medical treatment.

After experiencing my own personal crisis and being hospitalized for over a month, I was transported by ambulance to Fairfax.  Although I not previously considered this fact when moving to the area, I was most certainly thankful that I had the option of receiving the caliber of treatment I received during my stay.  Great Healthcare most certainly would be at the top of my list if I ever planned on moving to another area, but I don’t.
