Talk with your provider about the health risks involved with waiting to have your procedure.

Many states, including Virginia, have eased restrictions around elective surgeries and appointments. They’re allowing hospitals and medical facilities to again schedule non-emergency procedures. And that’s good news because it means you can again take charge of your health.

At UVA, we’ve increased access to medical care in our clinics and the hospital. Our primary care, pediatric and specialty clinics are welcoming new and existing patients for services ranging from annual checkups and well-child visits to immediate or specialized health needs.

We’re giving priority to patients whose surgeries or appointments had to be postponed in the last few weeks. We also have safety measures in place to protect you, including:

  • Screening patients and visitors for symptoms of illness at hospital and clinic entrances
  • Giving patients and visitors masks when they enter our facilities
  • Restricting visitor access
  • Evaluating, testing and caring for patients with coronavirus symptoms in separate, designated treatment areas

Need Medical Care?

Depending on your condition, you may be able to stay home and see your provider through a virtual visit.
