Sentara Life Care Norfolk Nursing Center is in the process of making some EXCITING changes. We invite you to be a part of the CHANGES we will make to benefit our staff, leaders, customers and the families that we serve!

Our 100 bed facility will be designated into two distinct Units:

  • Specialized Respiratory/ventilator program Unit (36 patients of Respiratory/high level care)
  • Long Term Care Unit: Approximately 64 patients

We are creating, smaller care units which enable patient care to have:
  • Consistent leadership and staffing for patients
  • More cohesive work team environment
  • Improve workflow and processes
  • Improved communication with family and friends of patients

We view each day as another opportunity to be better. To provide patient care that is unmatched, every time. And to give you every occasion to further your career.
