Sentara Healthcare is a leading not-for-profit, integrated health system serving residents in Virginia and northeastern North Carolina.  Each year, Sentara provides care for those who need it most, regardless of their ability to pay. In 2009, Sentara provided $157 million in uncompensated care, education and wellness programs. With a commitment to clinical excellence, Sentara is recognized leader in heart and kidney care, stroke care, infection prevention, quality, and innovation.

 Tracing its history to 1888 as the 25-bed Retreat for the Sick in Norfolk, Virginia, Sentara has a long history of improving the health of its community. Today, the Sentara mission goes beyond a single hospital. Sentara operates more than 100 sites of care including acute care hospitals, outpatient campuses, nursing centers, assisted living centers, advanced imaging centers, and physician practices.  As one of the nation's leading integrated health care systems, Sentara offers a full range of health coverage plans, home health and hospice services, physical therapy and rehabilitation services, and Nightingale - an air ambulance service.

Sentara continues to invest in the future of healthcare through technology, people and innovations in care. Among the most recent is Sentara eCare®, a system currently transforming paper charts into protected electronic medical records shared seamlessly across Sentara hospitals, physician practices, and outpatient care facilities. Physicians at Sentara are helping expand care by participating in national and international research trials to increase the medical options for all patients. Sentara is also among few health systems in Virginia honored with Magnet status, the highest award given by American Nurse Credentialing Center and a hallmark for clinical excellence. Sentara remains committed to clinical excellence and transforming care.
