Sentara Healthcare and EVMS Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons are celebrating the latest hospital rankings from U.S. News and World Report.

The ENT program at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital was ranked #43 among the top 50 in the nation, according to the rankings released July 30. The program is staffed by EVMS surgeons and is focused on cancers of the head & neck, sinus surgery, facial reconstruction, laryngology and otology (ear surgery). EVMS physicians also support the Sentara-EVMS Skull Base Surgery program, provide radiation therapy and other services through the Sentara Cancer Network.

 “We are proud to work in tandem with Sentara to provide advanced, patient-centered care,” said Barry Strasnick, MD, Professor and Chair of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. “Our world-class surgeons not only care for patients, they also advance the science of disorders of the ear, head and neck and train the next generation of specialists.”

In the same rankings, Sentara's Norfolk General Hospital was ranked the #2 hospital in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the top hospital in Hampton Roads.

“We recognize that we serve patients and their families at often the most vulnerable times of their lives. We take that trust very seriously and we’re grateful to know that, based on feedback from these surveys, we have earned that trust within our community,” says Carolyn Carpenter, President of Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. “It is our mission to improve health every day by continuing to be the go-to provider for complex, highly specialized services in this region and beyond.”
