Introducing the Wonder Tower—Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU's new home for inpatient and emergency care, specifically engineered to provide the children of Virginia with world-class pediatric care.
Set to open in early 2023, the 500,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art inpatient facility was thoughtfully designed with the understanding that children see the world differently. Featuring new operating rooms, imaging capacity, emergency department space, family amenities, and CHoR’s extraordinary team of caregivers, we’re fostering a life-changing, child-centered community dedicated to providing the special care children need, in a safe space crafted especially for them.
As the only comprehensive, full-service children’s hospital in the region, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU has been committed to providing quality care for all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay. This passion for pediatric care has led to several accolades including recognition in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021-22 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings in cancer, nephrology, pulmonary, and urology. As we embark on this new chapter, the Children’s Hospital Foundation is conducting a $100 million capital campaign to support the construction of the new Wonder Tower and will match the first $25 million in gifts from the community.
To be able to have all of those resources accessible in one place is going to make life as a mom of a complex ‘kiddo’ 10 times easier.”Kim Hassmer,
Our children deserve the best we have to offer both in terms of care and experience — and that is just what this new facility will provide for the entire region.”Delores McQuinn,
