Health Care: DR. J. STEPHEN JONES
PRESIDENT AND CEO, INOVA HEALTH SYSTEM, FALLS CHURCH
With a $1 billion, new Inova Alexandria Hospital set to start construction in 2023 with a Level II Trauma Center and a new cancer center, Jones is keeping very busy as head of the five-hospital, 20,000-employee system that is a major player in Northern Virginia.
A urological surgeon, Jones previously led Cleveland Clinic’s regional hospitals and family health centers before joining Inova in 2018. He also is a professor of urology for the University of Virginia and is editor-in-chief of Urology Practice, a journal published by the American Urological Association.
In May, the health system opened the Inova Saville Cancer Screening & Prevention Center, one of only a few dedicated cancer screening facilities in the nation. Inova Fairfax Hospital topped U.S. News & World Report’s 2022-23 list of best hospitals in Virginia, and its hospitals in Fair Oaks and Alexandria also landed in the top 10.
He also serves on the American Medical Group Association board as treasurer.
BEST ADVICE FOR OTHERS: If your authentic self isn’t what you think others should experience from you, don’t pretend. Get good enough to enjoy authentic.
