New Hire Paperwork

Prior to your first day of orientation, you must complete a pre-placement health screen with Sentara Occupational Health. If you do not have an appointment, call (703) 523-1390 now to schedule
(Monday - Friday  7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.).

At the time of appointment you must present a valid picture ID. You will need to bring an unexpired, government issued picture ID to the appointment. For most people this would be a driver's license, military ID card, or passport. If the name on your identification does not match the name on your application and social security card, please contact your recruiter to determine the best way to proceed. (Acceptable picture identification will be the same as indicated on the back of the I-9 form and must be current; if the identification you present is damaged and/or expired you will be unable to complete the pre-hire assessments).

Form Technical Details
You must have Adobe Reader to download these forms. Adobe Reader is free software that lets users view, fill and print filled in Adobe PDF files on all major computer platforms. Some of the forms are provided as "fillable" PDF files for your convenience. You must have at least Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 installed on your computer to view, complete and print fillable forms.
For "Fillable" PDF files: Acrobat Reader does not allow you to save what you key into the form, nor can you email the completed form—you should plan on completing and immediately printing completed forms. For some people, it may be easier to print and complete all of the forms by hand. You may do what works best for you.    

Pre-Placement Health Assessment Form
This form must be completed by all new hire candidates. Your medical history will be reviewed with an Occupational Health nurse. 1) Click on the “Pre-Placement Health Assessment” form link below. 2) Answer all questions to the best of your ability. 3) Once all requested information has been completed on the form, select SUBMIT (located at the bottom of the form). You DO NOT need to PRINT these forms. 4) If you do not receive a confirmation notice that your health assessment was submitted successfully, print out the completed form and bring it with you to your appointment. 5) Call 703-523-1390 to schedule an appointment with Occupational Health:
