We’re thrilled to announce that construction has begun for the new Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. It will be a state-of-the-art, life changing, lifesaving institution for all children in our community. The facility will provide new operating rooms, imaging capacity, emergency department space and family amenities — exclusively to provide the best care in an environment designed for kids and families. The new facility will be a home for Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU’s extraordinary doctors, nurses, specialists and medical technicians to carry out their passion for pediatric care.

Building this new facility will not simply expand our growing health care economy — it will improve the lives and health outcomes for our children.

World-class care for children and families close to home

Whether a child has a medical emergency or a chronic condition requiring ongoing treatment, they can turn to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU for the best care, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Our new inpatient hospital will ensure that the space in which they receive this care is also exceptional. That’s one reason donors through Children’s Hospital Foundation have invested over $90 million to support Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU since 2010. Our vision is to be recognized as one of the top 20 children’s hospitals in the country by 2022.

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.

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.
