About Us

When you are ready for your new beginning, it helps to have people supporting you on your path.

You won't feel alone when you decide to take that first step to a healthy weight. Sentara Martha Jefferson is with you every step of the way.
Our surgeons come with years of experience in both the gastric banding and the gastric bypass procedures. But they don't just perform the procedure and walk away. They stay with you, encouraging you to succeed and helping to overcome life's hurdles that may come along the way.

Our center has been accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), which means that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. The accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for their severely obese patients.

In addition, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield has recognized Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital with a Blue Distinction® Center+ for Bariatric Surgery designation as part of the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program. Blue Distinction Centers are nationally designated health care facilities that show expertise in delivering improved patient safety and better health outcomes, based on objective measures that were developed with input from the medical community.

From our experienced team of providers to our experienced nurses and dietitians to the customer service representatives who park your car, we combine the resources of a major medical center with the compassionate, individualized care found in a community hospital.

Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital delivers a tradition of caring that ensures we never forget what is at the heart of any treatment — a person.
