June 29, 2004 - Chesapeake, VA - With less than 24 hours left in office Chesapeake Mayor William E. Ward, most known for his economic development zeal, helps officially open Sentara’s latest medical office building—Greenbrier HealthPlex.
The ribbon cutting ceremony, immediately followed by tours and a reception, is set for June 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Greenbrier HealthPlex is the first facility to open on Sentara’s 14-acre comprehensive medical campus.
Located in the retail and residential hub of Greenbrier, the new 44,000-square-foot facility houses both Sentara services and independent physician offices for obstetrics and gynecology, family medicine and treatment of varicose veins. Sentara Women’s Health Source, a significant resource for women of all ages, relocated from a block away, and Sentara’s Reference Laboratory, which performs about four million samples annually, is featured. Consumers can take advantage of physical therapy, and imaging and diagnostic services.
"With today’s busy schedules, we’ve found that patients like the convenience offered on a health campus nearer to their home or work," says Donald V. Jellig, vice president of Sentara Healthcare. "It’s the enhanced imaging and potentially life-saving results offered the same day that we’re truly excited about," he continues.
Sentara’s Greenbrier HealthPlex, located at 713 Volvo Parkway is central to 2,000 Sentara employees and more than 40,000 health plan members who live in Chesapeake.
