THIS SEPTEMBER, UVA Health System broke ground on an extraordinary new orthopedic and sports medicine facility. This world-class complex will offer nationally-ranked expertise and care found in few other places—all in one easily accessible setting. Complete with walking gardens and outdoor therapeutic spaces, the Ivy Mountain Project will offer on-site diagnosis, imaging, surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. Unique opportunities for ongoing research and education also exist.
“We have the people, the technology, and the expertise,” says Dr. Bobby Chhabra, chair of orthopedic surgery. “What we’re missing is a single location, a physical home, so that we can offer our community and region comprehensive care in one convenient building.” The new facility will offer same day joint replacement, as well as expert care in a number of specialties, including hand, spine, sports medicine, foot and ankle, orthopedic trauma, sports concussions, and prosthetics and orthotics.
Philanthropic support from community members has already begun, including a generous gift from Nancy McCue, widow of Dr. Frank McCue. Dr. McCue was a nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon who cared for UVA athletes for more than 40 years. The McCues have long been champions of student athletes and their special healthcare needs.
Nancy McCue passed away peacefully at her home on October 4, 2018. The McCue Family asks that all gifts in Nancy’s honor be made to the Ivy Mountain project:
