Health and Hope for All

As a milestone in our almost 200-year history, we have created UVA Health’s first-ever enterprise-wide strategic plan: One Future Together | Health and Hope for All.

This plan outlines an ambitious set of strategic goals and initiatives to align our collective efforts across all four mission areas (clinical care, education, research and community) as well as our seven entities (the Schools of Medicine and Nursing, University Medical Center, University of Virginia Physicians Group, the Health Sciences Library, UVA Community Health, and UVA Community Health Medical Group).

It codifies our core values and establishes a unifying vision to be the nation’s leading public academic health system and best place to work by transforming patient care, research, education, and engagement with the diverse communities we serve.
