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

Useful, life-saving knowledge—that’s the hallmark of UVA's Heart & Vascular Center. Our cardiologists, heart surgeons, and care teams are personalizing care for every heart.

#TeamTuesday: Patient care technician (PCT) Aja Vest-Turner has worked in the hospital for just over a year. As a PCT, she monitors vital signs, helps patients with personal needs like using the bathroom, and ensures that they’re comfortable. She previously worked with heart and vascular patients but just transferred to our oncology and stem cell unit. Aja lives in Shipman and is planning to go to Piedmont Virginia Community College to become a registered nurse. She says, “I’m from a single parent household with two younger sisters. Where college didn’t work out for after high school, UVA has open doors and provided me with the opportunity to be able to obtain my dream of being an RN. I take pride in my job as a PCT, and I want to be able to give back more.” In January, Aja received our Uteam Member of the Month Award for her considerate care of a patient and her family. Aja said she has always wanted to care for people, and when she saw family members get sick and not receive good care, that inspired her to step up and make a difference.
