Nearly a year after the name change became official, UVA Culpeper Medical Center is seeking city approval to update more than 90 signs around its 16-acre campus on and around Sunset Lane to reflect the new name.
The request is in conjunction with the rebranding last October from Novant Health UVA to UVA Health. UVA Haymarket and UVA Prince William hospitals, which were also part of Novant Health, have also been renamed to align with UVA Health, sole proprietor since July 1, 2021.
The Town of Culpeper Planning Commission, at its meeting Tuesday at 6 p.m., will consider the application for a conditional use permit for a comprehensive plan on the Culpeper Hospital campus. The meeting will be held at the Economic Development Center, 803 S. Main St.
The local medical campus comprises several parcels, including the hospital as well as surrounding related uses such as women’s services, eye care, family services, and surgery. Some of the signs to be replaced do not comply with the city’s sign regulations and the applicant is requesting a specific plan for the number, size and location of signs to be applied on campus, according to a report from the town.
