Continuing the Martha Jefferson Caring Tradition in these unprecedented Times

Since the day it was founded in 1903, Martha Jefferson Hospital has been exceptional, riding amid ever-changing circumstances as a fine community hospital to become the world-class small hospital it is today.  The goal of Martha Jefferson Hospital, now Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, has been to remain on the forefront of qualitative healthcare while retaining our warm Martha Jefferson Caring Tradition.  The generosity and partnership of our community helps make this vision possible.  We are grateful for your dedication and support.    

In response to our fight against COVID-19, we again ask for your help to strengthen Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital and to support the critical needs of our frontline healthcare providers and staff, our patients, their families, and our community.  As always, 100% of your gift will directly support programs that benefit our local community.

Donate Supplies
to Keep our Heroes Safe

Like all hospitals and medical facilities, one of Sentara Martha Jefferson's highest priorities is securing, protecting, and conserving our supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, face shields and gloves.  We are accepting donations of these materials.  More information about donating supplies can be found here, and you can also contact us at 434-654-5033. 

In addition, we are accepting donations of homemade masks. While we require the use of FDA approved masks for all staff, we recognize there are nationwide shortages and we want to provide masks to all outpatient visitors. We are especially in need of providing homemade masks to those undergoing treatment at the Philips Cancer Center.  These patients are recurring visitors, and by providing them with a homemade mask, it is theirs to keep and reuse, protecting them and conserving disposable masks.

For information on how to construct a homemade mask, please see this article from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

You may drop mask donations off at the outside desk located at the main hospital entrance, 500 Martha Jefferson Drive. If you have questions, please contact Sharon Bishop in the Foundation office at 434-654-8258 or
