Dedicated to the communities we serve
Sentara has a long history of being a community partner in Hampton Roads, and in recent years it has also been our privilege to share our resources across Virginia by working with the new hospitals that have joined our family.
First and foremost, we know it is essential to train competent and compassionate health professionals. Through education, we do all that we can to create a pool of highly skilled medical professionals who are dedicated to giving patient-focused care.
Those professionals, in turn, treat all of our patients with dignity and respect, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay. We also lent a hand by offering discounts to uninsured people and assisting patients eligible for Medicaid.
While we strive to help people who are sick, we work equally hard to prevent illness and empower individuals to manage their health. To do so, we sponsor educational and preventative health forums and provide free medical screenings, understanding that an investment in wellness is the best investment for our shared future. Through our foundations, we also partner with community organizations. We donate funds through grants and see that they are used to directly help patients who might not otherwise receive needed education and healthcare.
