Centra Health is a constellation of hospitals, medical practices, outpatient facilities, and other services targeting the health care needs of residents in central Virginia. At the not-for-profit entity's core are two acute care facilities in Lynchburg: the 270-bed Lynchburg General, which is the region's main emergency center and specializes in orthopedic and cardiac care; and Virginia Baptist, a roughly 315-bed facility focused on cancer treatment, women's and pediatric care, mental health, and rehabilitation. Aside from its acute care operations, Centra operates an array of primary care physician practices, home health care services nursing homes, and numerous other physical and behavioral health businesses.
The Centra network is also home to Bedford Memorial Hospital in Lynchburg, which the company co-owns with Carilion Health System, and Southside Community Hospital in Farmville. The health care provider administers assisted living services through The Summit Assisted Living homes. The Summit offers senior residents private apartments, medical care, and personal assistance.
And while it's taking care of seniors, the company hasn't forgotten about the younger generation either. Centra operates Bridges Treatment Center, a residential program for children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders. Its Rivermont Schools, with locations throughout the region, educate kids with less severe behavioral problems.
Centra also runs the Piedmont Psychiatric Center, a multidisciplinary mental health center providing a full spectrum of psychiatric services to people of all ages. – less
