Our History

Since 1951, the residents of Suffolk and surrounding communities have been heir to a legacy of health and hope through the generosity of one man, Amedeo Obici, the founder of Planters Peanuts.  When his wife, Louise, died in 1938, Obici, who was one of the nation's leading industrialists, established a lasting memorial - one that would pay a fitting tribute to the woman he loved and the place they both loved and called home, Suffolk, Virginia.

This memorial, The Obici Charitable Trust, financed the building of the Louise Obici Memorial Hospital.  Subsequently, it provided partial funding for the new Obici Hospital dedicated in 2002.  Portraits and memorabilia from Amedeo and Louise and a pictorial history of the hospital are displayed in the Heritage Hallway on the garden level at the hospital.

In 2006, Obici Hospital merged with Sentara Healthcare. By gaining resources and award-winning programs of Sentara Healthcare, the patients and community can be assured of comprehensive care in the years ahead.  

Sentara Obici Hospital is committed to evolving and growing to meet the needs of its community. In June 2010, it opened a new three-story, 63,480 square-foot wing, which includes all private beds serving orthopedic, medical and surgical patients and increases the hospital's bed capacity to 168 beds.

Sentara Obici Hospital continues to dedicate itself to the practice of quality care and the legacy established by its founder, Amedeo Obici.
