The urology program at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH) has ranked No. 23 in the nation in the 2020 U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” edition.

The top 25 ranking in urology is a result of a continuing partnership and collaboration with Urology of Virginia and EVMS.

“This is tremendous recognition for Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Urology of Virginia and Eastern Virginia Medical School,” says Richard V. Homan, MD, EVMS President and Provost and Dean of the School of Medicine. “We’re proud to be part of the team making outstanding urology care available here in Hampton Roads.”

The ranking coincided with news that SNGH ranked as the top hospital in the region. The hospital is EVMS’ principal teaching hospital and is the Hampton Roads region’s only adult Level 1 trauma center – thanks to a partnership with EVMS.

Urology services at SNGH include expert treatment methods for kidney stones to complex bladder surgery, robotic surgery for prostate, kidney and bladder cancers, green light therapy for enlarged prostate, and the Sentara-EVMS Comprehensive Pelvic Floor Center. 

“We are proud to work side-by-side with our clinical partners at Urology of Virginia, educators at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and clinicians and researchers comprising the nationally accredited Sentara Cancer Network,” says Carolyn Carpenter, President of SNGH. “We thank them for their continued dedication to the patients and families we care for every day.”

The Urology program at SNGH is also part of the nationally accredited Sentara Cancer Network. The hospital last received a national ranking for Urology in 2012.
