The Sentara Greenbrier HealthPlex campus at 713 Volvo Parkway is growing. A second medical office building is under construction to house physician offices and new services including ambulatory surgery and a 24-hour free-standing emergency room. Below are some frequently asked questions about the project.

When did this expansion begin?
Building II began in October of 2009 after Planning Commission approval.

What's going to be in Building II?
Building II will make new space available for additional physician offices, an ambulatory surgery center and a 24-hour free-standing emergency department staffed by Emergency Physicians of Tidewater, the same board-certified emergency physicians who staff Sentara hospitals.

How long has the HealthPlex campus been there?
Building I opened in 2004 with advanced imaging, physical therapy, a Sentara reference laboratory and private physician space which is leased out.

Why do you need an emergency room there?
We believe there is a need and a demand for it. More than 10,500 Chesapeake residents left the city in 2009 to seek emergency care at Sentara facilities. Sentara operates three other successful free-standing emergency departments in Newport News, Suffolk and Virginia Beach

If I go to the Sentara ER, does that mean I won't be admitted to Chesapeake?
If our ER patients who need hospital admission ask to go to Chesapeake Regional, we will take them there, as we currently do from our other ER sites.

How long has Sentara been in Chesapeake?
For more than 30 years. We started with the Sentara Nursing Center. We now have 12 facilities, including physician offices and physical therapy centers, plus the Sentara College of Health Sciences, our central distribution facility and divisional administrative offices.

How many Sentara people are in Chesapeake?
Sentara is the 6th largest employer in Chesapeake, with 1,600 employees. About 2,700 Sentara employees live, shop and pay taxes in Chesapeake.

Does Sentara need approval for this emergency department?
Yes. We need a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) from Chesapeake City Council, which meets to consider this on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at 6:30pm at Chesapeake City Hall. The CUP was already approved by the Chesapeake Planning Commission on April 14. Please write to council in support of Sentara.
