For more than 125 years, Sentara has been committed to helping people just like you, people who want the most dedicated medical professionals helping them through every stage of life. Over the years, as we have expanded our offerings in health care, we also have grown as an integrated healthcare system throughout Virginia, North Carolina and beyond. Now, we operate more than 300 sites of care, including 12 hospitals – seven in Hampton Roads (southeastern Virginia), one in Northern Virginia, two in the Blue Ridge region of Virginia, one in southern Virginia and one in North Carolina.
Sentara Healthcare has come a long way since 1888 when it was first established as the 25-bed Retreat for the Sick in Norfolk, VA. Flash-forward more than 125 years: Sentara Healthcare is now comprised of 12 acute care hospitals with more than 300 sites of care all throughout Virginia and northeastern North Carolina and beyond.
We improve health every day.
