About Hospital Accompaniment

1

SAVAS companions are available round the clock to meet survivors and their loved ones at area hospital emergency rooms. Companions provide support for victims and their loved ones, answer questions about medical procedures and collection of forensic evidence, and provide information should the victim or their loved ones desire follow-up support services or referral information. SAVAS can respond to Sentara Potomac Hospital, Prince William Hospital, and Inova Fairfax Hospital.
