    This definition is not correct. It's not "I.N.O.Va." it's "Inova" and is stylized abbreviation of the word "Innovation." The street their admin offices are located on is "Innovation Park" the insurance they partner with (Through Aetna) Is "Innovation health." They changed the name TO Inova FROM F.H.A. (Fairfax Hospital Association) in 1991 because they were expanding the scope of their health system to include, not just hospitals but all facets of healthcare. It doesn't make sense that they would make it in to a MORE restrictive name.
