Norfolk, VA (May 2011) – Sentara Healthcare has a long, proud history of  investing in the creation of healthy environments throughout the region with quality care for patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

Sentara Healthcare Provided About $179.5 Million in Community Benefits in 2010
In 2010 more than $179.4 million was returned to communities across Virginia through uncompensated patient care services, training the future healthcare workforce and touching individuals with health information, screenings and prevention in their local communities.

Sentara’s heritage of caring for local communities is fundamental to our mission of “improving health every day.” And the basis for all we do in the future.

These figures translate into the real story – behind each of these numbers is a person in need. It may be the unexpected hospital admission that’s free or discounted because the patient doesn’t have medical insurance or a health screening that prevented a serious condition from getting worse.

Who does Sentara help?
