Halifax Regional adds Sentara to its name
South Boston-based Halifax Regional Hospital and its related facilities have added Sentara to their names in recognition of their merger with Norfolk-based Sentara Healthcare in 2013. The change took effect on Feb. 1.
The newly renamed Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital also announced the development and expansion of surgical services, including general surgery and orthopedics; the addition a new MRI machine; and approval for the addition of another procedure room in the hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab.
Two senior-care facilities, Sentara Woodview and Sentara MeadowView Terrace, also have broken ground on expansions, adding 20 beds and 18 beds, respectively. Each facility will have a new rehabilitation gym. The projects are expected to be complete in late 2015 or early 2016.
The primary-care and specialty physician offices also have added new health-care providers at various practices, and Sentara Halifax Pediatrics opened in December. Fifteen new providers were added last year, with eight more slated to begin during the first half of this year.
