We were established in 2006 when the former Louise Obici Memorial Hospital was merged into Sentara Healthcare. Our goal is to continue on the philanthropic journey started by Amedeo Obici when he built the hospital to honor his wife's memory and to serve the healthcare needs of the surrounding community. The Foundation's mission today reflects this same desire as we strive to address the unmet needs of the medically indigent and uninsured and to support programs which prevent illness and disease.

In 2018 our Board of Directors gathered to set a five-year strategic plan to best carry out our mission. The board determined the most promising opportunities that would affect key factors of health and improve health status of our service area. Moving forward, the Foundation will focus its grantmaking around two strategic priority areas: Access and Prevention.
