July 15, 2021
The University of Virginia Medical Center (d/b/a UVA Health), an academic health system providing care to patients throughout Virginia, has assumed full ownership of the interests held by Novant Health in the Novant Health UVA Health System, a Northern Virginia regional health system previously owned by the two institutions through a joint operating company.
Cain Brothers served as UVA Health’s advisor based on our deep domain expertise and experience working with both academic medical centers and community health systems across a range of transaction structures.
UVA Health and Novant formed the JOC in 2016 to provide patients with an integrated high-quality network of care close to home. UVA Health now has full ownership of the facilities that were part of the JOC, including ambulatory locations and the Culpeper, Haymarket and Prince William hospitals.
