Support Centra's Greatest Needs

Donor support allows your healthcare system to keep its medical technologies, equipment and facilities up to date, to keep our providers informed of the latest trends and best practices in clinical care, and to assist those who cannot afford to pay the full cost of diagnosis and treatment.

NEO ONE joined the Centra fleet in the spring of 2019 thanks to the generosity of our many donors.  Our fully customized neonatal ambulance is outfitted with the advanced technologies of an neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and can safely transport our most vulnerable patients. NEO ONE can pick up critically ill newborns throughout an 8,000 square mile area and provide crucial early interventions during transport to the Level 3 NICU at Centra Virginia Baptist Hospital.  Click here to learn more.

Donor support provided significant funding for the 2018 opening of the Holcombe H. Hurt Community Health Center in downtown Lynchburg. The health center, a collaborative venture between Centra, the Free Clinic of Central Virginia, and the Community Access Network, was established to take some of the patient load off Centra’s busy emergency department, which operates at 105-110% capacity.
