Message from Sentara's CEO

Since our health system's earliest years, more than 120 years ago, Sentara has believed the community deserves health care that is measurably better. The quality of health care is measured not merely by technology - because the latest equipment needs skilled, talented people to operate it. 

What really matters is the result. Was the surgery successful? Was the outcome what you hoped for? Sentara's goal is to lead the industry to achieve top 10 percent performance wherever national benchmarks exist.

These results are the measures Sentara invites you to examine throughout our organization. You'll find outcomes that soar above the national standards. Read more information within the Quality and Patient Safety section of this website.
