Community Foundation to Honor Singleton

Knox Singleton, CEO of Inova Health System, will be recognized by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia for his history of leadership and stewardship, providing world-class healthcare to all members of the diverse Northern Virginia community with the 2016 Community Leadership Award.

The longest-standing community-based recognition award in Northern Virginia, it will be presented at the Community Foundation’s annual Raise the Region Gala on Oct. 7 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.

The award is presented annually for outstanding commitment and dedication to improving the quality of life for all Northern Virginians. More than 600 business leaders, philanthropists, and community organizers participate in this event to celebrate the charitable work of the Community Foundation and to raise funds to support the critical needs of the Northern Virginia community.

Since 1983, Singleton has led Inova’s evolution from a collection of small, stand-alone hospitals into an award-winning health system, nationally recognized for clinical excellence, innovation and outstanding patient care. He also serves on several boards. He is co-founder of the Global Good Fund, which works to coach and mentor future leaders, and co-founder of the Community Coalition for Haiti, which creates community-driven solutions in healthcare, education, and community development in Haiti. Singleton has received numerous personal awards and recognitions, including the 2015 CEO of the Year by the Washington Business Journal
