October 2000 - This October marks the 25th anniversary of the opening of Sentara Bayside Hospital in Virginia Beach, and more importantly, 25 years of helping build a healthier community. From free screenings and community education programs to outpatient diagnostic and surgical services, Sentara Bayside Hospital touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of members of the community each year.
"We are proud of the 25 year history Sentara Bayside Hospital has with the Virginia Beach Community," noted Rosemary Check, hospital administrator. "And our physicians and staff are very excited as we prepare for the next 25 years with the addition of a new mobile MRI, new CT Scanner and other technologies and innovative services for our community."
Joining the Sentara family in 1991, the hospital is home to a contemporary care environment for general medical/surgical and ambulatory services including all private in-patient rooms and features a 44,000 square-foot wing that houses all outpatient services, an expanded emergency room, additional surgical suites and a critical care unit. Sentara Bayside Hospital is also proud to offer several unique services such as the rectal motility study in which Sentara Bayside Hospital is the only hospital between Hampton Roads and Richmond to offer this procedure. Join us in celebrating Sentara Bayside Hospital's 25th Anniversary in the community.
