University of Virginia Health System

       

U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Virginia Medical Center as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia for the third consecutive year. The publication’s 2018-2019 “Best Hospitals” guide also recognizes nine UVA specialties for adults among the best in the U.S. Together with six specialties from UVA Children’s Hospital are ranked in the top 50 nationally by U.S. News.

UVA embodies the leadership and inventiveness of its founder, Thomas Jefferson. In 1825, Jefferson established UVA as the nation’s 10th medical school. In the course of almost 200 years, UVA Medical Center has grown into a nationally acclaimed, 612-bed academic medical center with an outstanding Level 1 Trauma Center, as well as the nationally-ranked UVA Children’s Hospital.

Renowned for the latest and most advanced treatment options, the health system’s physicians, nurses and specialty team members are actively involved in research that gives patients access to treatments and medicine not widely available. Patients travel from around the world to seek treatment with UVA’s team. In addition to UVA Medical Center, UVA boasts a School of Medicine, a School of Nursing, a Physician Group Practice, and an impressive Health Sciences Library open to the public.

The future of UVA has never looked more promising. Recent capital expansions have seen new construction for UVA’s Children’s Hospital, a new research and education building, and an expansion of the Emergency Department and Operating Room. There are multiple ongoing construction and expansion projects, including a $120 million plus expansion of the emergency department, doubling its size to about 80 beds, all private, including a psychiatric unit.

UVA Health system has outlined a strategic plan that stresses innovation in clinical programs, an enhanced focus on lifesaving research, and a greater investment in the individuals and projects that move the organization forward. This will include Research: Discovering New Cures and Therapies; Patient Care: Support for Clinical Excellence; and Education: Preparing the Next Generation of Physicians, Nurse, and Healthcare Professionals.
