Defining Excellence


“Most EXCELLENT experience.  Very nice facility.  Better than my hospital I have seen in the past.  Would recommend this facility to anyone!  Very convenient.  Great staff.  Great doctors!  Everyone was equally awesome!”


-PEJ, April 2022

Highest Patient Satisfaction

More than a third of our patients complete patient surveys each month.  Ninety-nine (99%) of those would recommend MEDARVA Healthcare to others. 

Lowest Infection Rate

Thousands of patients each year appreciate having surgery in a non-hospital-based environment, where infection rates are lower and the nursing team specializes in same-day surgery. Our infection rate is less than 1%.

Transparent Pricing

Preparing for a procedure financially is just as important as preparing medically. We provide custom patient cost forecasts to reduce financial surprises.

Virginia’s Largest Independent Outpatient Surgery Center 

Locally controlled by a non-profit board of directors composed of community volunteers, MEDARVA Healthcare is a leader, performing more outpatient surgical cases than any other independent Center in Virginia.

70-year Legacy of Community Service

MEDARVA Healthcare began as the vision of a Richmond citizen whose bequest built a specialty hospital for Central Virginians needing eye care. Seventy years later, her legacy has directly impacted hundreds of thousands of patients and reached millions more through investments in medical research through the MEDARVA Foundation.
