Community benefit

Helping our communities achieve and maintain optimal health by providing the right care, at the right time, at the right place

Novant Health UVA Health System established comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessments for the primary and secondary service areas of Novant Health UVA Health System medical centers. Community Health Needs Assessments are a productive and meaningful way to engage the community in our strategic Community Benefit planning process. The goals of these assessments were to identify and evaluate health related needs in the communities that Novant Health UVA Health System serves, as well as to use this information to fulfill our vision and mission.
