Sentara Healthcare Workers To Receive Additional Bonuses For Their Commitment Throughout The Pandemic

Sentara Healthcare announced on October 4 that it plans to provide additional bonuses to employees for their continued dedication throughout the covid-19 pandemic.

Howard P. Kern, President and CEO for Sentara Healthcare, sent a message to workers praising them for their commit to Sentara, the community, and to each other.  He also acknowledged the difficulties that they have faced throughout the past year.

“Some of these challenges were reminiscent of the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic,” Kent wrote.  “New challenges presented us with the management of vaccinations, the Delta variant of the virus, and a resurgence of patient activity in our care facilities reacting to the limited services available in 2020.”

Eligible caregivers and patient-facing support staff working in Sentara hospitals, medical group offices, ambulatory clinics, home health, medical transport, and PACE clinics will receive a $2,000 bonus. All other eligible team members will receive $1,000.   

“The tenacity and resiliency of the Sentara team has truly been inspirational to me as the rock- steady foundation on which our communities have come to rely, especially as we all hope to emerge from this pandemic,” Kern wrote to his employees. “Each of you embodies the mission of improving health every day.”

This is the second round of bonuses Sentara has given its workers. Sentara first handed out bonuses to employees in March 2021 to mark the one year anniversary of the start of the pandemic.
