Social responsibility

Novant Health UVA Health System social responsibility

Please note: The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated all of us to act differently – personally, as organizations and as a nation. Nowhere are these changes more evident than with healthcare systems across the globe and across the country. At Novant Health UVA Health System, our practice of giving to charitable organizations and support of community sponsorships is one area that is impacted by the current health crisis. To conserve critical resources and maximize our ability to provide direct patient care for the communities we serve, we are limiting all charitable contributions and sponsorships until further notice. Novant Health UVA Health System exists to improve the health of our communities, one person at a time. During this global pandemic, and each and every day, our priority is to deliver safe and quality patient care. We look forward to resuming our practice of giving to organizations that support our mission in the brighter days ahead. In the meantime, we wish the best of health to our communities.
