Front Door Greeters
The main entrance at University Hospital (Northgate), as well as West Complex (Jefferson Park Avenue entrance), West Complex (Hospital Drive entrance), 1222 Jefferson Park Avenue, Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center and 415 Ray C. Hunt Drive are staffed with front door greeters to provide patients with wheelchairs and assist with other needs.
Over the past several years, we’ve expanded University Hospital with 72 new inpatient rooms and completed the Battle Building at UVA Children's Hospital and the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center. We recently expanded the University Hospital lobby and built a new climate-controlled pedestrian bridge between the Lee Street Garage and University Hospital. These changes help provide our patients with the experience they expect and deserve and support our employees in delivering exceptional care.
