Our residents train at Sovah Health - Danville, an academic community hospital located on the border of Virginia and North Carolina. The 250-bed hospital has formal affiliations with Duke University Medical Center in the areas of Cardiology, Stroke (Telestroke) Care, Infectious Disease Control, and radiation oncology. Sovah Health has comprehensive surgical services, a closed ICU (run by an Intensivist and resident team), 24-hour emergency services, a women’s & children’s center, pediatric services, an advanced wound healing center, two cardiac catheterization labs, and medical & radiation oncology services.
In carrying out its vision of creating places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice, and employees want to work, Sovah Health is an academic teaching site for resident physicians, medical students, Emergency Medicine fellows, nurses, pharmacists, CRNAs, lab techs, rad techs, and physician assistants. Our residents and students contribute to Sovah’s mission of Making Communities Healthier each and every day.
VACCINE INFORMATION: Sovah Health and our parent company, LifePoint Health, have decided not to pursue mandatory vaccination at this point. That may change, but for now, our effort is around removing anxieties, concerns, and barriers for getting vaccinated. Our goal is to get 90% of our staff members across all areas and departments vaccinated by December 1, 2021. We are currently working diligently to meet this organizational goal.
