Sentara Healthcare Facts & Figures

128-Year Not-for-Profit Mission:  We Improve Health Every Day 

We are one healthcare system with more than 28,000 employees, all with the same commitment to quality care and creating an extraordinary healthcare experience.

From hybrid operating rooms to new models of care, we’ve always been ahead of the curve.  For example, we:

  • Performed Hampton Roads’ first heart and kidney transplants, in addition to the first open-heart surgery. 
  • Opened the first PACE (Program for All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly) site in Virginia.
  • Were the first in the nation to pioneer eICU®, a remote monitoring system for intensive care.
  • Were the first to leverage telehealth through Sentara Home Care Services to better monitor and manage patients remotely.  
  • Gained worldwide fame when America’s first in-vitro baby was born at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

And, Sentara is focused on delivering care better in the future by providing the right care, by the right caregiver at the right place, right time and right cost – all while delivering an extraordinary patient experience.

Helping to achieve this:

  • The Sentara app provides convenient access to Sentara locations, health and wellness information and ways to connect with us.
  • Sentara MyChart provides patients with secure online access to this information, enabling new ways to interact with our doctors and staff. And the Sentara MyChart app empowers patients to access their electronic medical information on the go anytime, anywhere via their smartphone.
  • Our Sentara eCare Health Network® uses innovative and secure technology to link patient medical records between our hospitals, physicians and other healthcare sites.
  • Sentara MDLIVE connects consumers to board-certified doctors by phone or secure online video 24/7/365.
