‘Positive changes’ lead Sentara Healthcare to rename Virginia hospital


Citing a wealth of positive changes at the former Potomac Hospital in Woodbridge, Va., Sentara Healthcare has announced that the facility has been renamed Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center.

“The decision to introduce a new hospital name was prompted by the many positive changes made at Potomac Hospital over the past two and a half years since joining Sentara Healthcare,” Megan Perry, president of Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center and corporate vice president, Sentara Healthcare, said in a news release. “We believe that a new hospital name is symbolic and a celebration of all the hard work that has been undertaken by our physicians, staff and volunteers to improve the service and care we provide every day.”

Since December 2009, Sentara Healthcare has implemented many new programs and services, including the Sentara Heart and Vascular Center and a comprehensive electronic medical record, known as Sentara eCare, which uses technology to link patient medical information between Sentara hospitals, physician practices and other healthcare sites over a protected network.

“The name change also marks a new beginning, but the individuals behind the name are really the heart and soul of this hospital,” Perry said in a release.
