Why Choose Sentara

Sentara was the first healthcare system in the Hampton Roads region to perform heart transplants in 1989. Since that time, more than 300 patients have benefitted from donor transplantation and have gone on to lead happy and productive lives. In the decades since transplantation began, Sentara has been on the leading edge of programs that help extend and improve the quality of life for patients with end stage heart failure.

The Sentara Advanced Heart Failure Center manages all forms of heart failure. It is the only Center in Hampton Roads with the level of expertise to treat the most serious conditions with durable left ventricular assist devices, innovative total artificial/mechanical heart implantation, and heart transplantation. In addition, the Center provides evaluation and treatments of advance pulmonary arterial hypertension, or sometimes known as right heart failure.
