Sentara Healthcare workers to receive bonuses of up to $2,000 for working through COVID-19 pandemic


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Sentara Healthcare workers are set to receive bonuses of up to $2,000 for working through the COVID-19 pandemic.

President and CEO Howard P. Kern says the bonuses are “gifts of appreciation” for Sentara Healthcare employees’ continued dedication over the last year.

Approximately 98.5% of eligible Sentara employees including caregivers and patient-facing support staff working at hospitals, medical group offices, ambulatory clinics, home health, medical transport, and PACE clinics will receive $2,000.

All other eligible team members will receive $1,000.

To be considered eligible, you must be:

  • A physician or team member up to and including the Director level; Vice Presidents and above are not eligible
  • Are full-time, part-time, or flexi pool employees who are not on a temporary internal or external traveler assignment
  • Were or are hired on or before November 20, 2021 and are still employed by Sentara on December 9, 2021
  • Have worked any hours in the six months prior to December 9, 2021

This isn’t the first Sentara gifted its employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Back in March, Sentara announced a separate gift of appreciation toward employees.
