Mr. William Glodomore Leake made a gift through his estate in 1908 leading to the opening of Sentara RMH in 1912. He had a generous philanthropic spirit and a desire to help secure the best in healthcare for our local community. Through his generosity, Mr. Leake set a standard of excellence that has been perpetuated by each and every person, business, and civic organization that so generously supports Sentara RMH.
Today we have 238 beds and each year care for some 14,000 patients, see more than 71,000 emergency room visits, perform over 22,000 surgeries and deliver close to 1,800 babies
Mr Leake would be proud of the difference his gift made. You should be proud too.
