True North

Any organization as large as our Children’s Hospital requires a complex governance structure. Over the past three years we have been moving to a values driven leadership system (VDLS). Our strategic direction begins with the priorities set by Health System leadership, The six health system goals apply to all units.  These goals are cascaded throughout the organization through work plans as well as individual goal setting.

Those priorities, supported by the ASPIRE values, align us to the “True North” priority of putting the patient at the center of all we do. Our aspiration to make UVA the safest place to deliver and receive care is pursued using Be Safe lean methodology, a method that can be used by anyone in our organization, and which is extremely powerful in enabling us to reach our goals.

Please visit our mission, vision, values, and goals.

Thanks so much for all you give,
Karin and Jim
