Advancing Compassionate, Comprehensive Patient Care

How do we define exceptional care?

Patients thrive under the care of physicians and nurses who are specialists in their fields. They also benefit from having access to the latest treatment and research options available. This is exactly the kind of care UVA strives to offer all our patients. We also search for new and innovative treatments and cures, some of which come from our own laboratories. We offer and participate in clinical trials that bring new hope to patients.

In addition to saving lives, we work to improve the ways we deliver care—building state-of-the-art outpatient facilities like the Battle Building at UVA Children's Hospital and the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center.

In cancer, diabetes, emergency medicine, ophthalmology—and all across the Health System—opportunities exist to improve patient care. Three Centers of Excellence—cancer, cardiovascular medicine, and the neurosciences—are already engaged in building their capacity. UVA is also building partnerships across the Commonwealth, expanding our outreach with the UVA Culpeper Hospital and the UVA Hope Community Cancer Centers.

At the same time, in the School of Nursing, the Compassionate Care Initiative focuses on developing new models for end-of-life care for patients and creating and sustaining resilient practitioners.

We couldn't do all this without you.

Become a UVA Partner in Health

UVA's Partners in Health share our passion for saving lives and enhancing good health. Some are grateful patients or their families who have experienced first-hand UVA's excellence and commitment. Others have learned of our national reputation as a leading academic medical center. What these benefactors have in common is the desire to make a difference in someone's life.

Your contribution to UVA Partners in Health can be used where the need is greatest, or you can designate a specific area that has special meaning to you. Gifts may also be used in memory or honor of a physician, nurse, or loved one.
