Enforcement Division

The Virginia Department of Health Professions (DHP) places the highest priority on the health, safety and well-being of the Commonwealth’s eight million citizens. DHP’s mission is to ensure safe and competent patient care by licensing health professionals, enforcing standards of practice, and providing information to healthcare practitioners and the public. The agency’s 13 health regulatory boards issue over 500,000 licenses across 62 professions.

The agency’s Enforcement Division receives complaints and conducts investigations about alleged misconduct by healthcare practitioners and regulated facilities, including pharmacies, veterinary establishments and funeral establishments, and conducts inspections of facilities under the authority of DHP.
