Mission: We improve health every day.
National Healthcare Volunteer Week is putting a spotlight on the great volunteer opportunities that Sentara has for those willing to give some of their time and talent. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQfFt
During Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, we’re grateful for the dedicated Sentara professionals who work behind the scenes to keep patients healthy!
For more than a decade, Modern Healthcare magazine has ranked Sentara as one of the nation's top integrated healthcare systems. Our not-for-profit system proudly includes advanced imaging centers, nursing and assisted-living centers, outpatient campuses, physical therapy and rehabilitation services, home health and hospice agency, a 3,800-provider medical staff and four medical groups. In addition, we provide medical transport ambulances and Nightingale air ambulance, and we extend health insurance to 450,000 people through Optima Health, our award-winning health plan.
Among our many strengths, we are a national leader in heart and kidney care, stroke care, and infection prevention. We were also the first in the nation to pioneer and develop the eICU, a remote monitoring system for intensive care. Our dedication to improving and increasing medical options for our patients is reinforced by our ongoing participation in national and international research. These vital medical trials help us advance toward our mission of improving health every day.
Sentara Healthcare has come a long way since 1888 when it was first established as the 25-bed Retreat for the Sick in Norfolk, VA. Flash-forward more than 126 years: Sentara Healthcare is now comprised of 12 acute care hospitals with more than 100 sites of care all throughout Virginia and northeastern North Carolina and beyond.
Here at Sentara Healthcare, we are committed to consistently enhancing our training, advancement tracks, work-life benefits, and more. Our goal is to make you feel more excited to be here every day.

Nursing at Sentara
The unique continuum of care offered at Sentara Healthcare provides nurses with many possibilities. We welcome inquiries from new and experienced nurses who seek opportunities in a variety of care settings and in a variety of roles.
Sentara Healthcare nurses can explore careers with us in numerous areas:
I have been working at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)
great place to work, great benefits
not really any significant problem areas
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (New York, NY).
I am a new graduate nurse. A nurse recruiter reached out to me and scheduled and interview to meet with HR. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. She asked situational questions about my clinical experience (ex. how I would react under a stressful situation). Overall it was relatively easy since I was prepared with situational responses.
