A New Home for the Sentara Cancer Network
At the Sentara Brock Cancer Center, we are bringing together physicians, diagnostic and treatment services, and supportive care all in one state-of-the-art location.
Our Center continues to add new services and team members. Here’s what’s new!

The Advanced Imaging Center provides easy access to a new 3T MRI, 64 Slice CT, PET/CT, ECHO and x-Ray services. Plus, our Sentara McLeskey Comprehensive Breast Center offers 3D mammography, ultrasound and bone density testing. It is also NAPBC accredited in stereotactic breast biopsy and ultrasound-guided biopsy.
Sentara Supportive Care Services
Supportive Care Services is a medical specialty in an outpatient setting that focuses on improving quality of life for patients experiencing a serious illness. Our team can help with physical symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, tiredness, and depression as well as provide emotional support to you and your family. Services are available during any stage of your illness and can be provided while you are receiving treatments. Call the office at 757-624-0300 to learn more.
Silhouette Mastectomy Boutique
We are thrilled to be home to a second location for Silhouette Mastectomy Boutique, a unique and caring shopping experience for mastectomy products, as well as wigs and headware.
Sentara Surgery Specialists
The Sentara Surgery Specialists tradition is built on more than 40 years of striving to provide patients with high-quality surgical services. We provide comprehensive general, thoracic, colon-rectal, bariatric, breast and oncological surgical services. As part of the Sentara Brock Cancer Center, we’ll be able to offer our patients an elevated experience with seamless access to Patient Navigators, other testing and supportive care services, as well as the services of a certified genetic counselor with Sentara Cancer Genetics Services. All physicians are board-certified fellows of the American College of Surgeons. They place much attention on the uniqueness of each person’s condition and regularly engage in Multidisciplinary Care Conferences that bring together a variety of specialties to ensure all angles are considered in the development of a personalized care plan.
Sentara McLeskey Comprehensive Breast Center
The Sentara McLeskey Comprehensive Breast Center is among an elite group designated as an American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. After rigorous evaluation, our center is NAPBC accredited in the three major areas of breast imaging and cancer detection: mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and ultrasound-guided biopsy. As part of the Sentara Brock Cancer Center, patients will benefit from an even more seamless experience.
Sentara Advanced Imaging Center
The Advanced Imaging Center on the Sentara Brock Cancer Center campus offers easy access to patients needing additional imaging services as part of their diagnosis and treatment. Services include 3T MRI, 64 Slice CT, PET/CT, ECHO and X-ray. Our advanced imaging capabilities allow physicians to more accurately and efficiently diagnose patients’ conditions, and our team of subspecialized radiologists provide expert interpretations and send the results instantly to your referring physician.
Call 757-624-0190 for more information.
Sentara Therapy Center
Our Sentara Therapy Center offers Neuro and Cancer rehab services in a state-of-the art location designed with our cancer patients in mind. We have brought together specialized physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists to provide the services most needed during treatment and recovery to help better manage pain and speed healing. If you are having difficulty with swelling of arms/legs/head/neck, joint stiffness, weakness or loss of balance, we also offer Direct Access Physical Therapy — which means you can walk in or call for an evaluation and start treatment with a physical therapist without a physician referral, putting you on the path to healing sooner.
Our speech-language pathologists can address issues you may experience with swallowing, speech or cognition. In 2021, we are proud to be adding a speech pathologist to our team who specializes in the care and use of Tracheoesophageal Prosthesis (TEP), an indwelling prosthesis placed in the neck for patients after laryngectomy.
From general therapy to providing support during and following chemotherapy or radiation to lymphedema management, our team will work with you and your physician to assess your needs and develop the best course of care.

Research and Clinical Trials
Clinicians and academic researchers in the Sentara Cancer Network partner with Virginia Oncology Associates, Eastern Virginia Medical School, George Mason University and other national and local healthcare organizations to conduct research that elevates patient care. We offer research throughout the Sentara system, with a focus in Hampton Roads and Blue Ridge regions.
We are a proud and productive member in good standing of The Alliance for Clinical Trials for Oncology, funded by the National Cancer Institute. As a leading contributor to national research, we are committed to participating in promising clinical trials that make new first-line therapies available to patients right now. Our team also participates in research that may lead to better options for prevention, diagnosis and treatment in the future. One constant goal is to improve our patients’ quality of life.
