Community Benefits

Our mission is simple: We improve health every day. As part of that mission, we reinvest all earnings from operations back into the community and organization to continue our long-standing tradition of improving the health of the communities we serve.

In 2016, Sentara provided more than $341.1 million in community benefits. This investment back into the people we serve comes in many forms. To help us in identifying the healthcare needs of the communities we serve, Sentara Healthcare has conducted community health needs assessments for each of our hospitals. The dollar value of our community benefits includes uncompensated patient care, the teaching and training of healthcare professionals, community health and prevention screenings and other programs.
