Behind the Scenes with MEDCOM

On the very top floor of the Medical Center’s South Tower, you’ll find a highly trained and dedicated team running UVA Health’s Medical Communications Center (MEDCOM). From their tenth-floor control center, this special team keeps an eye on all communications, transit, security, and more. Most importantly, they make it possible for our communities from hundreds of miles around to access our expert care at UVA Health Medical Center.

As it’s a place that many of us wouldn’t visit, here’s a quick look behind the scenes.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out that this is one of the areas where Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) can share their skills and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients. If you or anyone you know is interested in exploring the Earn-While-You-Learn program for EMTs, please complete this form.

Take care and be well,
