On the June episode of the “Connect with County Leaders” podcast, County Executive Bryan Hill talks with Dr. J. Stephen Jones, president and CEO of Inova Health System – the region’s leading nonprofit healthcare provider.
Jones shared his insights on the importance of healthcare equity and community collaboration, as well as his experience leading Inova through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We want to ensure access to healthcare for everyone, anywhere within our system, even if they are not in Fairfax County,” Jones said.
Inova is committed to integrating diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in healthcare to provide better outcomes, regardless of their background or circumstances, according to Jones. His vision also includes a system that spans various jurisdictions and helps solve hard problems together working with counterparts in other areas.
