Martha Jefferson Hospital (VA) to merge with Sentara
Martha Jefferson Hospital intends to merge with Norfolk-based Sentara Healthcare, a historic union for the 107-year-old Charlottesville hospital.
The larger nonprofit health system already has eight hospitals around the state and has worked in some capacity with Martha Jefferson for more than 10 years, hospital officials said Wednesday. Officials said the merger would allow Martha Jefferson to provide better care and acquire the latest technology.
“We believe this will make Martha Jefferson Hospital an even better community hospital,” said Jim Haden, president and CEO of Martha Jefferson. “They become us, we become them.”
No price tag has been attached to the merger, and hospital officials said there would be no layoffs as a result. The completion of the merger is expected to take around six months.
