Position Statement on Diversity for the Health System

For over a century, the University of Virginia Health System has been providing patient care services to diverse populations. The Health System celebrates diversity in all of its forms. As part of the University of Virginia, we embrace the vision of "a community of respect, understanding, and tolerance." We are enriched by the unique differences within our community, and continuously strive to increase our inclusiveness.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to ensure that the delivery of patient care addresses the diversity within the populations that we serve. With the knowledge that each patient is unique, we continuously strive to provide culturally sensitive and appropriate care by learning to understand the beliefs, attitudes, behaviors, and desires of each patient.

We believe that the best patient care environment is one that fosters inclusiveness of all members of the community. This community includes our patients, their families and friends, spiritual leaders, health care providers and staff, students, and volunteers who, together, help maintain our healing environment.

The University of Virginia Health System is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. To fulfill this commitment, the Health System administers its programs, procedures and practices without regard to age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family medical or genetic information and operates both affirmative action and equal opportunity programs, consistent with resolutions of the Board of Visitors and with federal and state requirements, including the Governor's Executive Order Number One (2014).
