Our mission to improve health every day drives everything we do to keep individuals, families, and the community we serve healthy. We do this by establishing partnerships that create a positive impact in our communities.

We help individuals by addressing the social determinants of health and prioritizing specific areas where we can have the greatest impact. This perspective has focused our support on housing, skilled careers, food security, and behavioral health. Similarly, through our engagement in the communities we serve, we have identified areas where we can make a difference in improving the quality of life enjoyed by all residents, such as ongoing support of cultural programs, recreational features, community events, and educational enrichments.

We have tailored our initiatives and support in a way that activates the power of Sentara’s resources — More than 30,000 team members to our wide range of facilities across Virginia and Eastern North Carolina.
