For more than 125 years, Sentara has been committed to helping people who want the most dedicated medical professionals helping them through every stage of life. Over the years, as we have expanded our offerings in health care, we also have grown as an integrated healthcare system throughout Virginia, North Carolina and beyond. We now operate more than 300 sites of care, including 12 hospitals - seven in Hampton Roads (southeastern Virginia), one in Northern Virginia, two in the Blue Ridge region of Virginia, one in southern Virginia and one in North Carolina.
Sentara not only meets the highest national industry standards and benchmarks for delivering high quality and safe care, we push to exceed them. Reflecting this, we consistently achieve top-quality awards and accolades. IBM Watson Health recognized Sentara as one of the 2018 "Top 15 Healthcare Systems" in the country. We also have ranked at the top of U.S. News & World Report's best hospitals and healthcare programs for more than 18 consecutive years. Additionally, eight of our hospitals have achieved Magnet Recognition Program® designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the highest quality designation for nursing and one that ANCC only awards to eight percent of hospitals nationwide.
