Sentara Healthcare

Public Healthcare - Health Services

Over our 125-year history, innovation has happened in different ways at Sentara. Through patient health and healing, community grants and education, and the many ways we reward our employees.

For the past 15 years, we’ve been ranked by Modern Healthcare and SDI Health as one of the top ten integrated healthcare networks. Sentara has also been honored by AARPmagazine for our Patient Safety Program, and has received national recognition for top performance in heart and kidney care, stroke care, and infection prevention.

We were the first in the nation to pioneer and develop the eICU®, a remote monitoring system for intensive care, and our team performed Virginia’s first artificial spine disc replacement surgery. We operate the Hampton Roads region’s first Air Ambulance (“Nightingale”), and continue to advance medical technology by participating in national and international research.
