Virginia’s hospitals and health systems are vital to our Commonwealth and its communities. Not only do they provide the care that every Virginian needs, but hospitals and health systems rank among the state’s largest employers and economic engines. Unfortunately, Virginia’s hospitals and health systems are facing unprecedented levels of change and uncertainty, driven by both underlying market forces and policy challenges.
For our part, Virginia’s hospitals and health systems are committed to achieving top-tier performance in health care quality, safety, service and value. Our collective vision is to help make Virginia the healthiest state in the nation and do our part to advance the health and economic opportunities for all Virginians.
This is the first report of what will be an annual series of reports detailing our health systems’ role in our Commonwealth. It is our sincere hope that you will find these reports insightful and share with others the stories they tell. After all, it is for you, your family, neighbors and co-workers that Virginia’s hospitals and health systems are prepared to care.
Thank you for your interest in the future of Virginia’s health and health care system. If you have questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association or your local hospital.
