UVA Health becomes the sole owner of 3 NoVA medical establishments


PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – UVA Health is now the sole owner of their joint operation with Novant Health in northern Virginia, according to a press release. UVA Health now owns full ownership of Prince William Medical Center, Haymarket Medical Center and Culpeper Medical Center.

These medical facilities were previously owned and operated through a joint operating company established by UVA Health and Novant Health. UVA Health officials said the move would provide specialized patient care and also allow patients to participate in clinical trials.

Dr. K. Craig Kent is CEO of UVA Health and Executive Vice President for Health Affairs at the University of Virginia. “As our university health care system stretches across Virginia, we are able to provide a full range of primary and subspecialty care to Commonwealth patients,” he said. “UVA Health will be able to provide better access to cutting-edge therapies and clinical trials that may lead to better treatments for all in the years to come.”

All assets once common in Northern Virginia, including Haymarket and Manassas Medical Centers, are now part of the UVA Health system. Officials said the move would expand the range of services available to patients.

“This relationship will make it easier for patients across the region to benefit from our high quality care, the latest technology, breakthrough research and clinical trials,” said Kent. “By expanding the footprint of our healthcare system, 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. “

Jim Ryan, president of the University of Virginia, said acquiring full ownership of medical centers is a step in the right direction. “UVA Health’s expansion aligns with our mission of serving residents across the Commonwealth with exceptional patient care,” he said.
