Virginia Premier Joint Ownership

Important Announcement from Optima Health: In September of 2019, we shared the news that Sentara Healthcare will become the majority owner of Virginia Premier and VCU Health System will retain a 20 percent ownership stake in Virginia Premier. We are pleased to announce that VCU Health System and Sentara Healthcare have finalized the transaction for joint ownership of Virginia Premier.

This partnership allows both organizations the ability to develop value-based programs, implement best practices to enhance our care models, and more effectively manage healthcare costs. However, Optima Health and Virginia Premier remain separate entities.

There is no impact to Optima Health employer groups and members. It is business as usual.

Please do not hesitate to contact your Optima Health representative or your broker if you have questions.
