Celebrating 125 years of Sentara Healthcare
Sentara Healthcare is celebrating 125 years of delivering compassionate and quality care. We’ve come a long way since the Retreat for the Sick opened in 1888. From our origins as a modest haven for Norfolk’s poor, Sentara has grown into a multi-faceted health system providing health care across Virginia and into North Carolina.
Our 125th anniversary is a great opportunity to reflect on the diversity and culture of our heritage.
While the next 125 years are uncertain, Sentara Healthcare’s mission and focus remain constant: to improve health every day. With the continued support of the community, we will persist in our commitment to providing excellent outcomes for all patients.
