U.Va. Employees May Schedule Quick Medical Appointments

February 23, 2010

February 23, 2010 — The University of Virginia Health System has launched a new, convenient service for all U.Va. employees: UVA Employee Connection, which provides quick access to faculty, staff and their families for scheduling appointments through a single point of contact, or "ambassador."

Through UVA Employee Connection, U.Va. employees and their families can schedule a primary care appointment within two business days, non-procedural radiology services within three business days, and a specialty care appointment within five business days.

Incidentally, even if you already have a primary care provider outside U.Va., you can use a U.Va. provider for your specialty care needs.

Employees who wish to take advantage of the service can call 434-243-3675 on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to assist with scheduling appointments.
