Online Information and Resources for Healthcare Professionals

Sentara is pleased to provide you with a fast, accurate online verification service to be used for hospital and managed care credentialing. This website provides current practitioner status information and is maintained by the Sentara Hospitals Credentialing Office and Medical Staff Offices. All information contained in the database is secure and cannot be altered by outside parties.

This site verifies affiliations for the following hospitals:

  • Sentara Albemarle Medical Center
  • Sentara CarePlex Hospital
  • Norfolk Hospitals
    • Sentara Norfolk General Hospital
    • Sentara Leigh Hospital
  • Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center

Directions

On the screen titled “Find a Practitioner, ” enter all or part of the last name and/or the first name. Then click on the “Search” button in the lower right corner. All names meeting the criteria entered will appear.

Select the name of the individual for whom a query is requested and click on “Letter” to the right of the name.  A letter will appear. Enter the name and address of the individual to whom the letter should be addressed. At that point, the verification letter may be printed. (Your printer settings may need to be adjusted so the letter prints properly.)

Note: To start a new search, you must hit the "Clear" button each time.

We will no longer provide individual verification letters for providers who can be verified using the website. Requests received for such will be returned to the requesting organization. 

Please check the website before sending a verification request.
