“This recognition from Becker’s underscores the hospital’s commitment to clinical excellence, personalized care, and community impact,” states Erik Shannon, chief executive officer of UVA Health’s community medical centers and clinics in northern Virginia and Culpeper. “In the past few years since becoming part of UVA Health, our team members and providers have worked to maintain exceptional standards of care while we began expanding service line access, investing in technology and facility upgrades, and recruiting new providers and staff. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the team members, providers, and volunteers at Prince William Medical Center who embody dedication, compassion, and innovation daily to achieve this accolade.”
