Dr. Brown, his wife and three children recently moved to Hampton Roads from Morgantown.

Independently owned Obici Hospital and its parent, Obici Health System, offer the people of western Tidewater and northeastern North Carolina the latest in health care close to home. In a stunning and soothing building with every square inch devoted to healing, the Suffolk, Va. facility continues to honor the legacy of Amedeo Obici, who founded the hospital in memory of his wife, Louise.

As part of that legacy, in 2001, Obici became the first hospital in Hampton Roads to affiliate with a prestigious national network of holistic health-care providers called Planetree. Belonging to Planetree, in effect, formalizes Obici’s long tradition of caring for patients physically, emotionally and spiritually.

A 138-bed community hospital, Obici is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations and offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient treatment and services.

Obici Health System’s mission is &uot;To provide health services that improve the quality of health in our community.&uot; The system’s Planetree motto is, &uot;Everyone who works for Obici Health System is a caregiver. Our care is guided by viewing everything we do through the eyes of the patient.&uot;
