Sentara in the Community
Community Outreach at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital
Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s community outreach programs and services support health needs of underserved, “at-risk” persons and are developed to improve the overall health and well-being of our community.
In January 2013, the Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital Board of Directors accepted and adopted the “Thomas Jefferson Health District Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships MAPP2Health” district-wide community health assessment and improvement plan.
The hospital’s outreach programs address the four priority health issues identified in the community assessment.
Among the community outreach venues the hospital uses to address these priorities is the Sentara Starr Hill Health Center, a free community wellness center with a nurse practitioner on staff to help people set and reach goals for weight control and overall wellness.
