Serving the Community
Upper Valley Medical Center (UVMC) provides access to affordable health care services to the families of the northern Miami Valley.
Serving the Miami County and surrounding communities is a primary goal of UVMC. As a proud member of Premier Health, UVMC is committed to improving health care in the community, and being a good corporate neighbor in Miami County. The hospital focuses on four main aspects:
- Investing in the community
- Prevention and wellness
- Commitment to the under-served
- Community engagement
Investing in the Community
UVMC is proud to invest time and resources into the community. From health screenings and health fairs to immunization clinics and support groups, UVMC has invested in the community and benefitted thousands of individuals in seeking health care education, services and support.
Prevention and Wellness
UVMC is dedicated to educating the citizens of Miami County about health issues as well as providing resources to build a healthier community. UVMC and the American Cancer Society teamed up with Edison Community College to host a new HealthWise Outdoor Fitness Center on the Edison campus in Piqua. The unique exercise fitness facility is free and open to the public. UVMC also hosts a free Lifeclinic self-monitoring station at Edison to provide quick and easy measurement of blood pressure, heart rate, weight and body mass.
Commitment to the Under-Served
UVMC has programs that assist the needs of those with minimal or no insurance. More than $24 million in charity/uncompensated care was provided by UVMC, along with a host of community health outreach programs that go beyond tradition medical care. UVMC also provides a local charity care program to held uninsured and under-insured Miami County patients who do not qualify for other assistance.
UVMC prides itself on being an active member of the Miami County community. UVMC continued to partner with Edison Community College with support of the Health Sciences Center expansion, which accommodates important nursing and allied health programs. The UVMC Foundation and Auxiliary also collectively awarded more than $72,000 in college scholarships to local students, many of whom are pursuing a degree in health-related careers.
