From NoVA Medical Group:

ASHBURN, VA (January 31, 2012) – For the second consecutive year, Board Certified Internist Dr. Grace L. Keenan, founder and CEO of Nova Medical & Urgent Care Center, Inc., is named one of Northern Virginia’s “Top Internists” in Northern Virginia Magazine’s “Top Doctors 2012” issue.

The annual “Top Doctors” list is generated through nominations submitted by peers and panels of head physicians at 10 local hospitals.  According to Northern Virginia Magazine, each panel of physicians was asked to discriminatively look at doctors with privileges at their hospital.   They nominated doctors based on all of the internal tools they are privileged to, including: internal evaluations, patient reviews, and overall quality of care (patient access, training, unblemished records, and how the doctor works with other staff).  Dr. Keenan has privileges at Inova Loudoun Hospital and Reston Hospital Center; she was elected as a “Top Doctor” by the panelists.

Dr. Keenan is board certified in internal medicine, integrative and holistic medicine, and anti-aging medicine.  A native of Canada, she received her medical degree from Memorial University School of Medicine in 1985.  Upon successful completion of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at St. Thomas Hospital Center in Akron, OH, Dr. Keenan relocated to Loudoun County and began private practice in 1988. The previous sole proprietorship became Nova Medical Group in 1991; today it is the largest primary care practice in Loudoun County with locations in Ashburn, Sterling, Leesburg and Warrenton.  A fifth office in Gainesville is slated to open in June 2012.

Recently honored with the Enterprising Women of the Year award for 2012 by Enterprising Women magazine, Dr. Keenan is a business leader in Loudoun County.  She is actively involved with the local community, serving on the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Loudoun County CEO Cabinet, and the Loudoun County Chamber Executive Committee.  She was also newly elected to serve on the 2012 Tigerlily Foundation Board of Directors.  In addition, Dr. Keenan is a member of 100 Women Strong, the Washington Spa Alliance, a clinical preceptor for George Mason and Marymount Universities, and an affiliate faculty for George Mason University.  On a national level, she serves on the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Leaders & Innovators Strategic Advisory Panel and the University of California Irvine Extension Advisory Committee for the Spa & Hospitality Management Certificate Program.

Other professional memberships include: the Medical Society of Northern Virginia, American Association of Medical Review Officers, Medical Society of Virginia, American Medical Association, Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), the Women’s Foreign Policy Group, International Spa Association (ISPA), and Vistage.
