Tomorrow can’t wait.

At UVA Health System, we are taking a critical look at what has come before to discover, research, teach, and care for patients in an entirely new way. You can help.

These are our stories

The 2017-18 U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” guide rates University of Virginia Medical Center as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia and honors 11 UVA specialties as among the best in the U.S. This is the second consecutive year UVA tops the Virginia hospital list.

#TeamTuesday: This Thanksgiving, we’re grateful for our many generous employees who give back to the community. Leah Beard is just one of them — she volunteers with Piedmont CASA - Charlottesville. Court appointed special advocates (CASAs) work with kids who are in foster care, advocating for safe environments. They write court reports for family hearings, advocating for stable and nurturing homes for the children. Leah says the process can be frustrating but ultimately very rewarding, and it helps her feel a deeper connection to her community. Leah also leads a Day of Caring team through United Way TJA. When she’s not volunteering, she works full-time for UVA School of Medicine as the assistant director for diversity programs. She trains people in unconscious bias (unconscious attitudes we hold about others that impact our decisions). She also manages outreach events, communications and new initiatives to increase diversity and inclusion.
