UVA Health reports it is now :the full owner of Novant Health UVA Health System,” the regional health system previously owned by UVA Health and Novant Health through a joint operating company.

Expanding the scope of UVA Health – which now has more than 1,000 inpatient beds throughout Virginia – will provide more opportunities for patients to access clinical trials examining potential breakthrough treatments and better support highly specialized care for patients, according to the news release from K. Craig Kent, MD, UVA Health’s chief executive officer and UVA executive vice president for health affairs.

Dr Kent said “As our academic health system expands throughout Virginia, we are able to provide the full range of primary and subspecialty care for patients throughout the Commonwealth,” said “UVA Health will be able to provide greater access to cutting-edge therapies and clinical trials that can lead to better treatments for all in the years to come.”

UVA Health now has 100 percent ownership of all the facilities and assets that were formerly part of the joint operating company, including an integrated network of outpatient services and three hospitals: Prince William Medical Center in Manassas, Haymarket Medical Center in Haymarket and Culpeper Medical Center in Culpeper.

Dr. Kent said, ” UVA Health’s new scale will mean streamlined access to comprehensive care, including the No. 1 hospital in Virginia as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.”

He added, “We are so excited about this new relationship and the opportunity to serve even more patients throughout Northern Virginia and Culpeper. Working together with the excellent team already in place, including our employed and independent physicians, we are looking forward to creating a new vision for healthcare in Virginia. This relationship will help patients throughout the region more easily benefit from our high-quality care, the latest technology, groundbreaking research and clinical trials,” Kent said.

“By expanding our health system’s footprint, it will also provide us with more opportunities to fuel our teaching mission, which will benefit patients for decades to come by training the next generation of healthcare providers,” Dr. Kent added.
