Sentara History: The Book

About Sentara Healthcare

About Sentara Healthcare

Dr. Southgate Leigh


In honor of our 125th anniversary, we’ve created a historical book dedicated to the patients who have entrusted us with their care and to the Sentara Healthcare staff, physicians, volunteers and community members – past, present and future.

The book explores the history of Sentara Healthcare from 1888 to 2013, and is filled with photographs and stories that tell part of our collective history from each of our regions. The collective history is a true reminder of what can be accomplished when thousands of people work towards the same mission – improve health every day.
