Sentara Princess Anne Hospital serves southern Virginia Beach, as well as the neighboring city of Chesapeake. At Sentara Princess Anne Hospital, we promote healing for some of our youngest patients through our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Our patients also benefit from achieved excellence in gynecological, comprehensive breast care, orthopedics, cardiac care, and advanced imaging services.
Our nurses represent so much of the work we do which is why we work to promote a spirit of inquiry and continued innovation. We keep our focus on what matters most by remembering our Sentara Commitments; always keeping our patients safe, always treating each other with courtesy and respect, always keeping others informed by communicating effectively, always listening and responding as needed and always working together as a team.
