Why UPG

UPG: A Team and Mission Putting People First


UPG physicians and other key medical providers are committed to sustaining the quality of life in our communities—whether on grounds at the UVA Medical Center or in the Louisa County countryside, in Culpeper or along the Shenandoah Valley. Joining UPG means close affiliation with the University of Virginia Health System whose Hospital has received the notable Magnet designation for excellence. Wherever there is a UPG clinic or group practice, there too is direct access to UVA’s advanced technology, research, and clinical excellence and a commitment to advancing the health of Virginians. It is important work, and we invite you to join the team that is making it happen.

Wellness is Priority One

When advanced care is required, UPG’s network ensures that patients and their families have direct access to Specialty Care Clinical Practice Sites and the UVA Medical Center’s state-of-the-art resources and capabilities. This continuity of care is critical to boosting overall population health and ensuring the best possible outcomes for patients.
